Grace O’Rourke Veitch, head of EMEA at Segment, said: “Segment is experiencing a tremendous amount of growth right now, and Ireland will serve as a great stepping stone for us as we further grow into the European market. Segment’s culture is built around impact, and Dublin’s highly educated, multilingual workforce will play a key role in our expansion strategy.”

Dublin’s talented workforce, its strong relationship with the US and the rest of Europe, and Ireland’s full embrace of user privacy rights makes our decision to be headquartered in Ireland an easy one.”
