A recruitment firm has announced plans to open up a Dublin office creating 100 jobs.

Glassdoor, which bills itself as the world's most transparent jobs marketplace, has launched its Irish website, the ninth country specific site since it was founded in 2008.

The new office will open in January with positions primarily in sales, marketing and customer success.

The glassdoor.ie site began operation by hosting more than 33,000 job listings and first-hand insights into more than 2,600 employers in Ireland including company reviews from employees, salary reports, interview feedback, office photos and information on benefits.

Diarmuid Russell, head of Glassdoor International, said: " In addition to be being focused on better addressing the needs of the European jobs and employment market, the opening of the Dublin office in 2016 is an opportunity for local job seekers to join Glassdoor and help build and shape a tech start up that is in hyper-growth mode."

The investment is supported by IDA Ireland.

Glassdoor describes its recruitment system as "give-to-get" whereby it offers free access to all its data once a user contributes their own content, such as a salary report.

Jobs Minister Richard Bruton, in New York on a trade mission, said the Government was aiming to make Ireland the internet capital of Europe.

"And over recent years we have managed to attract many of the most exciting companies on the internet to establish operations here. Today's announcement by Glassdoor that it is establishing an office in Dublin in the coming months and creating 100 jobs is another great step on this journey," he said.
