Microsoft has announced the creation of 200 new jobs in Dublin, bringing its Irish workforce to 2,000.
The company’s operations are based in Sandyford, and the roles that are up for grabs include Technical and Solutions Sales Specialists as well as those with language capabilities.
The announcement comes on top of the 500 jobs already promised by the company in February, 80% of which have already been filled.
IDA chief executive Martin Shanahan said the addition of a further 200 roles to Microsoft shows the how important the region is to the tech giant:
Microsoft's continued growth and commitment to Ireland has resulted in Dublin being a strategically important location for the company's global business
Ireland is a global technology hub of choice when it comes to attracting the strategic business activities of ICT companies and Microsoft's ongoing expansion in Dublin is a clear endorsement of this.
