Stripe to add 1,000 jobs in Ireland over next five years.
With a new investment valuing the company at $95bn, Stripe is setting its sights on further expansion in Europe.
After a decade in business, Stripe has announced plans to significantly expand its operations in Ireland as it continues to grow in Europe.
On the back of investment that sees the company edge closer to a $100bn valuation, Stripe will add at least 1,000 jobs in Ireland over the next five years.
Roles will be added to a broad range of teams in order to support Stripe’s accelerating European user base and launch new global products. Some of the jobs created in Ireland will also take the lead on Stripe’s global operations.
Speaking of the announcement, Tánaiste Leo Varadkar, TD, said the new roles at Stripe will be “really good, well-paid, professional jobs” that will be a real boost to the Irish economy.
Stripe, founded by Irish brothers Patrick and John Collison in 2010, is dual-headquartered in San Francisco and Dublin and currently has more than 3,000 employees across 14 international offices.
Its platform to power online payments first launched in the US in 2011, arriving in Ireland in 2013. Two years later, Stripe opened its Dublin office.
