WorkFusion, an AI tech firm, is establishing a new European headquarters in Dublin, with aim to hire 100 people over the next three years.
The new R&D-focused office will be located on South Cumberland Street in the city centre.
The US organization is aggressively recruiting in Ireland, with many positions offered on its website. It is searching for software engineers, data scientists, and other professionals.
WorkFusion is a company that specialises in intelligent automation. It creates AI-powered ‘digital workers’ to do tasks for companies in industries such as banking and insurance, freeing up employees for more valuable work.
“When considering where we should locate our European headquarters, Dublin was an easy choice,” said Adam Famularo, CEO of WorkFusion.
“Ireland has a booming technology sector and an abundance of skilled talent, plus it’s ideally situated as the gateway to the EU. It also has great technical universities and, as an AI company, Dublin’s focus on being the world’s AI centre of excellence was an added bonus.”
WorkFusion’s fourth office will be opening soon in Dublin. The corporation is based in New York, with offices in Poland and India.
The Irish government is funding its expansion through IDA Ireland. Leo Varadkar, Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade, and Employment, said he is “very satisfied” with the plans for the new European headquarters.
“The intelligent automation technologies in which WorkFusion specialises are giving businesses cutting-edge solutions,” Varadkar added.
“AI is going to be a big part of the future of technology and having a leading company establish its European HQ here is testament to the talented workforce in Ireland. This investment also highlights the importance of our EU membership. I wish WorkFusion all the best on their new and exciting chapter in Dublin.”
