Good news! Citrix is further increasing its Dublin workforce by 50 new employees, meaning that the company headcount in Ireland will grow to 265 people by the end of 2014. The open positions include roles in sales, IT shared services and technical support.  Details on these new roles and other open positions can be found on www.citrix.com/careers and a recruitment day will also be held on Saturday 18th October for Technical Support Engineers.

The planned expansion demonstrates 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. This project 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.

The pool of highly skilled workers in Ireland has given Citrix the confidence to continue to expand over the next four years. As technology has become a seamless part of people’s work and personal lives, Citrix has provided desktop, mobile, app and data services to enable people to work better. Mobility in the workplace has become both an expectation and necessity very quickly and Citrix has moved swiftly to address this opportunity.

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.
