Tableau Software, a Seattle-headquartered firm which develops business intelligence products, has said it hopes to grow its workforce in Ireland to over 120 employees over the next three years.

The company established operations here two years ago and in May of this year announced plans to move into new offices on Dublin’s Shelbourne Road, which have capacity for 100 employees.

The group employs 40 people locally and is currently advertising a small number of additional roles in Ireland.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny officially opened the new office on Tuesday.

Tableau’s software helps users to quickly visualise and understand data and to share information. Bank of Ireland, UCD, TCD, Vodafone, Irish Life, Trend Micro are among the firm’s Irish customers.

“Ireland is an important market for us and we are delighted to be growing our team and operations here in Dublin where there is such a talented and diverse workforce,” said Eugene Hillery, director, international operations.

“We are seeing strong demand from a variety of sectors and from companies of all sizes who want to better see and understand their data,” he added.
