Technology giant Microsoft has announced 200 new roles at its European base in Dublin. The company has had operations in Ireland for over 30 years and recently opened a new €134 million campus in Leopardstown in Dublin earlier this year. This latest expansion follows on from a jobs announcement of 600 new roles last year.
Half of the new roles are expected to be in high-skilled engineering positions, with the remainder of the roles in sales, data centre operations as well as graduate and intern positions.
Microsoft currently employs 2,000 people in Ireland and of the new 200 to be recruited, 100 will join the engineering team to work in areas such as artificial intelligence and machine learning for customers around the world.
The company are seeking applicants with software, service and site reliability engineering experience, as well as those with data and applied sciences backgrounds.
A further 50 positions will be in digital sales, while the balance will serve its data centre operations, sales subsidiary and join its graduate and intern programme.
“The broad-based expansion of Microsoft in Ireland reflects the dynamism, energy and continued transformation of our team in Dublin,” said Microsoft managing director Cathriona Hallahan.
The announcement has been welcomed by the Government and IDA Ireland, which has supported the investment.
