Deem, a leading mobile and cloud software technology provider, today announced that it will create 50 highly skilled jobs at a new European Innovation Centre in Dublin.
Deem’s expansion into Europe is part of a bold growth strategy that will see the company doubling its workforce around the world, including at its headquarters in San Francisco.
Deem offers a suite of travel booking and management tools for corporate customers and travel management firms. It is a wholly owned and independently operated subsidiary of Enterprise Holdings – the world’s largest car rental provider, which provides services in more than 90 countries and has annual revenues of $24.1 billion.
With the support of Enterprise Holdings – which has operated the Enterprise Rent-A-Car brand in Ireland for the past 22 years – Deem will hire 50 software engineers for its Dublin Innovation Centre in the coming 12 months, with further expansion in 2020.
The new European Innovation Centre in Dublin will house a highly-skilled research and development team that will focus on building the next-generation platform to optimise Deem’s travel solutions.
Welcoming the news, Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Heather Humphreys said, "This announcement is a reflection of how attractive Ireland is to companies operating in the tech sector. We have the skills and talent available to enable the company to grow and to embed their operations here and I look forward to their continued expansion and success over the coming years."

It’s a world-renowned hub for technology, innovation and excellence with an exceptional number of skilled workers, great international connections and a high standard of living. Expanding into Dublin will allow us to pursue our mission – to transform corporate travel – faster than ever before."
