An Irish technology firm is to create 75 new jobs in Dublin.

Fleetmatics is a provider of mobile solutions for service-based businesses.

The positions will be in place by 2018 at its global headquarters in Tallaght.

This will bring the company's total employee headcount in Ireland to more than 200.

Fleetmatics was founded in Ireland in 2004, in a small office in Templeogue - employing about 10 people in the first year of operation.

It completed its initial public offering on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in 2012, and now employs over 1,200 people world-wide.

Co-founder and chief technology officer Peter Mitchell said: "While we are growing and expanding Fleetmatics across our major international markets, it is important that we continue to invest here where it all began".

"Here in Ireland we are spoiled with an incredible talent pool in R&D. And we attract them to Fleetmatics by offering engineers and product managers an opportunity to work on leading edge UX, SaaS, Mobile, IoT and Data Analytics projects", he added.

The expansion plans also include the development of a new Network Operations Centre (NOC) and a custom-built facility, housing the company's operations and application support engineers.

As of March 31st 2016, Fleetmatics served approximately 37,000 customers and some 737,000 subscribed vehicles globally.
