LinkedIn Hiring 100 in Dublin

Raise a toast to LinkedIn, as the professional networking site announced the creation of 100 new jobs in Dublin, Ireland, over the next 12 months, with 15 of them already listed.

Positions will be available at various experience levels in sectors including sales, business development, marketing, customer services, finance, human resources, and operations.

LinkedIn international human resources director Connie Gibney said:

LinkedIn has continued to expand since we opened our international headquarters in Dublin in March 2010, working closely with IDA Ireland. Since then, we’ve added more than 70 people to our team here and 40 million additional members worldwide. We’re looking for more great people to help us connect the world’s professionals with more opportunities on a massive scale.

Ireland is increasingly one of the world’s centers of talented people with international language skills and experience in working for fast-growing Internet companies. This makes it the ideal place from which to support our continuing growth in Europe and further abroad.

Ireland minister for jobs, enterprise, and innovation Richard Bruton TD added:

LinkedIn is an excellent addition to the thriving digital-media industry operating from Ireland. The creation of 100 jobs by a leading global Internet company across a wide range of business functions is very welcome indeed and will provide employment opportunities for highly skilled staff in an exciting and innovative business.
