The Canadian firm, online retail and e-commerce firm Shopify, has announced the creation of 100 new jobs.
Shopify provides services for small and medium sized businesses enabling them to sell goods online. Employees of the company work from home, which the company believes gives people flexibility and leads to greater productivity.
Shopify first established a presence in Ireland in 2015. It currently employs 150+ people in various locations around Co. Galway. Adding to this number, it now plans to hire an additional 100 new staff over the next 12 months.
Speaking about the announcement, Director of Support for Ireland at Shopify, John Riordan, said: "We've seen the benefits of remote culture and how it can be utilised to rejuvenate the west of Ireland and counties like Galway."
Welcoming the announcement, Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise and Innovation Frances Fitzgerald said: "This is a really exciting, innovative, company, which is paving the way for more flexible and family-friendly forms of working. "Their rapid growth in Ireland is a true vote of confidence in what Ireland has to offer cutting-edge companies." IDA Ireland Ceo Martin Shanahan said: "Over the last two years Shopify has championed a truly transformative style of employment across the west of Ireland with all Irish staff working remotely from home. "I am delighted that this platform has proven to be such a huge success and is reinvesting in its Irish operations."
