Republic nets 100 web design jobs

A US web design company is to open its European headquarters in Dublin, creating 100 jobs.

Squarespace, which runs an online publishing system that allows companies to create and maintain their websites, will open its first office outside of its New York HQ later this year.

The Dublin office will serve customers outside the US, with most staff working in customer care.

Announcing the investment, Taoiseach Enda Kenny said the Squarespace decision to open here was a "signal of Ireland's growing reputation as the internet capital of Europe". "This means greater opportunities for our bright, highly skilled workforce, and the government is working to attract further investment," he added.

The Republic's Jobs Minister Richard Bruton described the move as "great news for the city and the sector".
