E-commerce platform Shopify to create 100 new jobs in Ireland

Canadian e-commerce platform Shopify has announced plans to create 100 new jobs in West Ireland.

The cloud-based commerce platform established its customer service operations in Ireland in 2015 and currently employs more than 150 people, the majority based remotely across Galway county.

The company now plans to hire over the next 12 months up to 100 more employees, or ‘gurus’, as it calls its Irish support staff. All jobs will be available on a remote basis.

"Over the last two years Shopify has championed a truly transformative style of employment across the west of Ireland with all Irish staff working remotely from home. I am delighted that this platform has proven to be such a huge success and is reinvesting in its Irish operations. This IDA Ireland supported investment is an important endorsement of the talent which is available right across the West Ireland,” said Martin Shanahan, CEO of IDA Ireland – the inward investment promotion agency that is helping Shopify.

Shopify is an e-commerce solution that allows small and medium-sized businesses set to up their own online store and control every element, from the storefront to the organisation of products, with just a few clicks.

Frances Fitzgerald, Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise and Innovation, said Shopify’s rapid growth in Ireland is “a true vote of confidence in what Ireland has to offer cutting-edge companies."
