US firm 6D Global Technologies to create 60 jobs in Dublin
Digital business company to use Ireland as a base as it targets European market
The Nasdaq-listed firm, which offers business intelligence, web content management, digital creative, mobile apps and digital publishing, is targeting the European market for expansion. The Dublin office will serve customers of 6D Global outside the US, as well as supporting its growth in Europe.
The opening of the office is considered a key milestone for 6D Global, which has customers around the world, and is a result of the ConnectIreland initiative that is seeking to attract more investment to the country.
“We are seeing a tremendous demand from our customers to have one digital solution partner that is positioned to support their growth globally,” said Tejune Kang, CEO of 6D Global Technologies. “Our global customer footprint makes it increasingly important for us to offer local representation to our customers around the world. When we assessed where to establish our European base of operations, Ireland was a logical choice given its growing reputation in driving world-class innovation and access to talent.”
The news was welcomed by Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton, saying it demonstrated how new companies were being brought to Ireland by reaching out to the Irish diaspora.
Under the ConnectIreland initiative, those who introduce new companies and help create sustainable jobs in the State are in line for a financial reward from the Government. Among those who have established operations here as a result of the scheme are financial software firm ProSeeder, business analytics company Data Clarity and basalt fibre producer Mafic.
