Less than four months since announcing its entry into Ireland, tech company SiteMinder has formally opened its new office at Dockgate, Galway, and is set to reach its target of creating 100 jobs by the end of the year.
The company, considered one of the top 20 technology pioneers to come out of Australia, provides a cloud platform for the global hotel industry.
Officially opening the offices, Galway Mayor Noel Larkin said the company has made great progress since announcing in August that it was establishing offices here in Galway, already ramping up to almost the full complement of 100 jobs that it announced at that time.
“It’s great to see SiteMinder now ‘bed in’ with these smart new offices. The addition of this innovative technology company to Galway’s growing technology hub is a huge plus for the city and region. I wish them all future success.”
With support by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation through IDA Ireland, SiteMinder announced its arrival into Galway in August, six years after opening a London office to service EMEA where the greatest proportion of the company’s 23,000 hotel customers are today.
SiteMinder said the rampant need for modern hotel technology across the region necessitated the creation of a second local office, in the emerging technology hub of Galway, to support its strong growth trajectory. The company’s presence is already established in Ireland with a customer list that includes Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel and K Club as well as The Connacht Hotel and The g Hotel and Spa in Galway.
Ruairi Conroy, General Manager of SiteMinder in Galway, says, “We are delighted to formally open the doors to what we believe is one of the finest modern office spaces in Galway City centre. SiteMinder remains one of the few technology providers servicing the entire EMEA region from Galway, and we are proud to be an enabler of both internationalisation and exciting career opportunities for local talent. Our commitment to the people and city of Galway is strong as ever.”
