Irish company Cleverbug.com, a new ecommerce business, which designs and prints business cards and promotional materials for small businesses is to set up its international headquarters in Dublin. The majority of the jobs will be in technology and product development, sales and marketing, customer care, market research, operations and finance. The company has raised $2.5m in funding.
Cleverbug.com CEO Kealan Lennon said:
Our plan is to create 50 new jobs as we further develop our business and I am delighted to be establishing our International headquarters here in Dublin.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny said:
The Government wants to develop Ireland as a 'digital island' and the presence of internet companies, like Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Zynga and Twitter, setting up international headquarters in Dublin is a significant vote of confidence in our country. It is really positive to see e-commerce companies like Cleverbug.com establish and create jobs here and I particularly welcome such an innovative service, which is focused on helping small businesses.
