Facebook announced today that it is creating a further 200 full time jobs in Dublin. The posts will be filled by the end of the year, taking the total number of employees at Facebook’s International Headquarters to 1,500. The new jobs created will be split across a range of business functions, including sales, engineering and online operations.
The announcement is a key milestone in Facebook's commitment to investing and growing its presence in Ireland. Facebook recently doubled the size of its premises in Silicon Docks to over 250,000 square feet which brings the potential to hire up to 2,000 people in total.
As part of this expansion, the company opened the Facebook Partner Centre, the first of its kind outside the Global Headquarters in Menlo Park, California. The space is designed to inspire business partners and stakeholders, learning more about Facebook's family of apps and services and also spark conversation about the company’s longer term investments in Connectivity, Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Reality to further achieve its mission to make the world more open and connected.
