The New York-headquartered business, Genesis is opening a brand-new office in Dublin. They already have an office in Dún Laoghaire, however, with the arrival of the new office, Genesis plans to hire for 40 new roles in Dublin over the next two years.
The Dublin office will function as their European hub, with finance, accounting, data analytics, and sales teams working here. Since last October, Genesis has already recruited 12 people in Dublin. Their new office will open on May 1st and is situated in the Academy building on Pearse Street.
Billy Morris, Chief Financial Officer at Genesis has said he is excited to expand the company’s engineering team in Ireland. Being from Dublin, he was promoted to this role last year and manages the company’s expansion here.
He has said the company will be hiring for several other roles over the next few years too. Billy also said the company is very impressed with the top-tier talent in Ireland and that he feels as they continue to grow the business, the headcount will also increase.
