Okta, the identity and access management company will be opening a headquarters in Dublin to assist with its EMEA expansion plans. Following this expansion, they plan to create 200 jobs in Ireland by 2024 as soon as their new office on the Dublin Docklands opens.
The San Francisco-headquartered company will be opening its Dublin office in April and this will act as a global hub focusing initially on hiring customer-facing roles in marketing and sales. Over the next two years, the Dublin-based team will also open up to roles in development, research, and other critical business roles including HR, recruitment, and accounting.
Okta provides cloud-based solutions for access management and verification. They have more than 15,000 clients including ITV, Siemens, Renault, DCC, Engie, Slack, Plan International, and Pret a Manger.
The arrival of the new Dublin office will increase its total number of international offices to 23. The office will support the company’s operations across all of Europe too, with a focus mainly on France, Germany, the UK, Benelux, Spain, Italy, and the Nordics. They have also said they are committed to offering employees flexible and hybrid working options.
President of worldwide field operations for Okta, Susan St Ledger said: “The new office gives the company an exciting opportunity to serve its regional customers and leverage Ireland’s diverse and unique talent pool to enable customers to safely use any technology.”
