Technology company Citrix will increase its Dublin workforce by 50 new employees by the end of 2014, bringing its total Irish workforce up to 265 people. The open positions include roles in sales, IT shared services and technical support.

The planned expansion is being driven by the momentum behind the Citrix business in Ireland and the growth of Citrix technical support, sales, IT operations and SaaS divisions in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region. It is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.Citrix has also recently invested €540,000 in its East Point facilities in Dublin to ensure it has the capacity available for future growth.

Grace O’Rourke Veitch, Citrix Ireland country manager, said: “Citrix has been able to grow its business in Ireland and across Europe, the Middle East and Africa because of the fantastic staff we have here in Dublin. The pool of highly skilled workers in the country has given us the confidence to continue to expand over the next four years as we develop technology to enable companies to work better in a dynamic and mobile world.”

A number of Citrix business units operate in Ireland including sales, global IT operations, HR shared services and technical support teams that provide support to partners and end users across the entire EMEA region, for all Citrix mobile workspace technologies. In addition, the Dublin site has diversified to include software development activities, online content and customer self-help technology and product and program activities.
