It was announced today that SiteMinder is set to open its new office in downtown Galway to provide around 100 jobs initially with the potential to grow in future.
SiteMinder, the hotel industry’s leading cloud platform, will formally announce the opening today in Galway alongside the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation, Mary Mitchell O’Connor.
The project comes one month ahead of SiteMinder’s 10-year milestone, to support the company’s 20,000-strong-and-fast-growing global hotel customer base and is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation through IDA Ireland.
SiteMinder’s customer base in Ireland includes Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel and K Club, as well as Galway’s own The Connacht Hotel – host of today’s opening event – and The g Hotel and Spa.
Galway will complement SiteMinder’s existing EMEA headquarters in London to service hotels both within the region and around the World and to form the company’s fifth office alongside Bangkok, Dallas and Sydney.
Europe constitutes the greatest proportion of SiteMinder’s total customer base and, with the continent expected to become the first to see offline overtaken by online as the primary booking method for travel products by the end of 20171, the company anticipates vigorous growth will continue to come from the region over the coming years.
SiteMinder is now actively recruiting graduate sales representatives to join their accelerated development program as well as experienced customer training and support analysts.
Managing Director EMEA at SiteMinder, Dai Williams said, "We are delighted to join the thriving technology hub of Galway, which we have identified to be greatly aligned with our company’s culture and mission of providing terrific career opportunities for local talent who are passionate about technology and can benefit from an attractive lifestyle and work-life balance."
