HR software company Personio is set to expand its new international business and software engineering hub in Dublin with the creation of 140 new jobs.
The HR tech company, which ‘digitises people processes to unlock the productive potential of European SMEs’, has grown its Dublin presence from the ground up, building a team of 40 people since opening its office in the city in April 2020.
Personio has today announced plans to expand its workforce to 180 by the end of the year.
The company is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.
Offering SMEs recruiting, HR management and payroll support through its all-in-one HR software, Personio operates from three other European offices in Munich, London, and Madrid.
The Dublin office — which is headed up by Geraldine MacCarthy, Personio’s chief revenue officer — opened its doors in April 2020.
Hanno Renner, co-founder and CEO of Personio said: “As a European company, we are passionate about serving the needs of European SMEs, and Dublin’s an ideal place to do that. The city’s business-friendly environment and status, as a well-established international talent hub — one that’s already helped many successful tech companies better serve the European market — made the decision to set up our fourth office here an easy one. With Dublin as the base for our international business and software engineering hub, we’re well-positioned to become Europe’s leading HR platform for SMEs.”
Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Leo Varadkar said: “It is great to see that Dublin will become Personio’s new international business and software engineering hub. The company has gone from strength to strength since it set up in Dublin only a few short months ago and it’s really encouraging to see the addition of 140 new roles.”
Geraldine MacCarthy, chief revenue officer at Personio, said: “So far, the European market is highly underserved in terms of HR software for SMEs, which creates huge potential for us to continue our growth trajectory here in Ireland, as well as internationally. And this year, with businesses needing new ways to effectively manage remote and hybrid workforces, the appetite for HR technology has only increased. After a tumultuous 2020, the importance of effective people management and strategy in overall business success has never been clearer, and it’s by digitising people processes that employers can free up HR’s time to focus on their greatest asset: their people.”
