The Irish-owned provider of multi-channel customer engagement and marketing, Xtremepush, has stated that it will more than double its workforce in Dublin.

The company’s new offices were officially opened in Clarendon Street by Robert Troy TD, Minister of State for Trade Promotion, Digital and Company Regulation at the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment who said that global demand for Irish-developed software and digital solutions underscores Ireland’s reputation as a world-class technology hub, where talent and investment drive continual innovation.

Just under a year ago, Xtremepush secured $33m USD in growth finance to scale globally. The funding round included equity funding from Grafton Capital, a London-based growth investor in leading European technology companies, and a refinanced debt facility.

Founded in 2014 in Ranelagh by CEO Tommy Kearns and Chief Technical Officer Dr Kevin Collins, Xtremepush has been placed in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Awards for three consecutive years.

Pandemic-induced demand continues for Xtremepush, where the past two years have seen clients in the ecommerce vertical doubled and a 64 per cent growth in customer numbers. 

The business currently employs 80 people and has doubled its staff numbers over the last eighteen months. Significant recent hires include a new Chief Financial Officer, a Chief People Officer, a new Head of Engineering, a Director of Operations and a Director of Marketing. The new Clarendon Street headquarters will accommodate more than 120 employees.
