Yelp to establish European base in Dublin


6 June 2014

Local business review website Yelp is to create 100 new jobs in Dublin with the opening of its new European office.

The announcement was made at a visit to Yelp’s office in San Francisco by the Taoiseach Enda Kenny as part of a week-long trade mission with the IDA. Recruitment is underway immediately.

“Expanding Yelp’s international operations with the opening of our new office in Dublin is a landmark moment in the company’s history. This new office will be home to our European operations and will be the engine behind our European revenue generation efforts,” said Jeremy Stoppelman, co-founder and CEO at Yelp. “Ireland offers us fantastic access to multiple language capabilities from a tech savvy and educated population, not to mention a country that has proven to be a home-away-from-home for a number of existing Yelp employees that have already relocated there.”

Taoiseach Enda Kenny said: “As part of our recovery plan it is important for Ireland to continue to win investments from leading international digital media companies by providing an excellent business environment supported by our exceptionally talented people and our strong track record. Silicon Valley is a vitally important market for Ireland. My visit here this week is all about cementing and reinforcing existing investor relationships as well as building new connections with a view to securing new jobs and investment for Ireland.”
