An enterprise technology learning company has announced plans to open a new headquarters in Dublin early next year.

Pluralsight says its Dublin office will house the company's strategic business operations for the region and support its growing customer base in Ireland and throughout Europe, Middle East and Africa.

The firm plans to hire 150 people in Dublin over the next three years across a variety of roles - including sales, marketing, operations, finance, and customer support.

It says the investment will also bring more than €40m to the local economy.

Pluralsight has named Mike Featherstone as the head of business operations of its new EMEA headquarters.

Welcoming the announcement, Business, Enterprise and Innovation Minister Heather Humphreys said: "I am delighted that Pluralsight has decided to invest in Ireland with a project that will create 150 new quality jobs.

"The company is at the cutting edge of new learning technologies, which are so important today, given the pace of technology development and new innovation in business.
"We have the skills available to enable Pluralsight to grow and to embed their operations in Ireland. Their decision to invest here is a great vote of confidence in what we have to offer."

Aaron Skonnard, co-founder and CEO of Pluralsight, added: "We are thrilled that our new Dublin office allows us to be closer to our customers in Europe and beyond.

"Dublin's thriving tech community will allow us to build a strong team of high-calibre, multi-lingual talent.

"This will help enterprise leaders and professionals identify skills gaps and quickly acquire the skills needed to remain competitive and adapt to the rapid pace of technological change."

Founded in 2004, Pluralsight provides members with on-demand access to learning tools, directed learning paths, expert-authored courses, interactive labs and live mentoring.
