AdRoll expands European operations with move to Burlington Plaza

AdRoll, the world’s most widely adopted retargeting platform, is announcing today that it is expanding its European operations, moving to a larger office in Dublin and revising upward hiring plans for the year ahead.

AdRoll established its EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) headquarters in Dublin last October with plans to create 100 jobs in the first 12 months. Since the company’s launch, AdRoll is ahead of its schedule in terms of business and the quality of staff available has exceeded expectations. With 45 people currently in place in Dublin, the company is actively hiring across all functions including sales, account management, business development, finance and engineering to support customers in a number of languages throughout the EMEA region.

This June, AdRoll will move into its new 10,349 square-foot office at Burlington Plaza following a 10-week refurbishment.

“We are very excited about the talent we have found in Ireland and the response we have had since entering the European market” said Marius Smyth, AdRoll’s Managing Director of EMEA. “We have outgrown two offices already, but we believe our new space will see us through to fulfilling our ambitions to have a large, high performing multilingual team in Ireland to service our clients across Europe, Middle East and Africa.”

The Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton TD said: “The Government’s Action Plan for Jobs identifies fast-growing emerging companies as an area of potential for Ireland, and in recent years IDA has established a new division to specifically target such companies. Today’s announcement that AdRoll, a highly innovative company and rapidly-growing player in its sector, is moving to a larger office and revising upwards its already ambitious hiring plans is another very welcome confirmation of the progress we are making in this area. I wish AdRoll every success with this project”.

Barry O’Leary, CEO IDA Ireland said: “In recent years, IDA has begun to look to towards embracing new high growth companies – just like AdRoll. AdRoll’s choice of Ireland as a place to do business is an endorsement of Ireland’s reputation as a location of choice for fast-growing businesses to expand into the EMEA market. I would like to offer the continued support of IDA Ireland as it moves to its new premises in Dublin’s Burlington Plaza, which will provide AdRoll the capacity for future growth in Ireland.”
