Microsoft will create 200 engineering roles in Dublin to add to its highly skilled team of 600. They have also launched a new €27m Engineering Hub in Leopardstown in Dublin. The building was designed with engineers needs at its core.
“At the heart of the new Engineering Hub is The Garage, a space and concept that is well known and established at Microsoft’s Seattle campus. In The Garage, employees have the freedom to innovate, fail, learn and experiment on projects they are passionate about.”
The significant investment in Ireland is a testament to the commitment Microsoft has in Ireland and also provides positive signs for employment prospects within Ireland for the future. The new roles will be across a range of disciplines including:
- Software Engineering
- Product Design
- User Experience
- Data Science
These roles will be based in development, deployment and support of new Cloud services and emerging technology solutions.
