Dropbox founders Drew Houston and Arash Ferdowsi

Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD today announced that Dropbox, US cloud storage firm, is to establish an international Operation Centre in Dublin. Dropbox is a service that allows its users to easily access and share documents, photos and videos from anywhere in the world. This is Dropbox’s first move outside of the United States. Kenny statement says: "The new office will strengthen Dropbox’s ability to provide technical support to the millions of Dropbox users worldwide. This investment is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland." There is no estimate of the likely number of jobs involved.

The initial goal of Dropbox’s Dublin office is to hire for a variety of positions, including multi-lingual sales teams (likely from Eastern Europe), account management and user operations staff, all of which will provide targeted support to Dropbox users in Europe. With over 100 million users worldwide, over one-third of them in the European region alone, Dropbox’s new office opening will support the company’s continuing growth and expansion.

Enda Kenny said: “As part of Ireland's mission to become the best small country in the world for business we have become the European hub for many of the world’s leading digital companies. The arrival of a top cloud company like Dropbox indicates Ireland’s growing capacity to usher in the next generation of internet companies. Ireland has many advantages to offer international companies, including our young, passionate and talented workforce, all of which will be a great asset to Dropbox as they make their new home in Dublin. I wish Dropbox every success with this new centre and offer them the continued support of the Irish Government as the company continues to develop here.”
