Rubrik has announced it has officially opened a new office in Cork with plans to scale up investment in the region and open the doors for future talent through local university partnerships. 

The data security company will move its current office in the IDA Ireland Science and Technology Park to a larger space to accommodate its sustained growth in Ireland and Europe.

Intern And Graduate Programs 

The expansion will enable the company to continue fostering future talent through intern and graduate programs with local universities, including University College Cork and Munster Technological University. 

Machine Learning

Rubrik uses Zero Trust Data Security to help organisations achieve business resilience against cyberattacks, malicious insiders, and operational disruptions. 

The Rubrik Security Cloud, powered by machine learning, secures data across enterprise, cloud, and SaaS applications.

Cork Celebration

Headquartered in California, Rubrik opened in Cork in 2017, and has continued to grow in the area. To commemorate the expansion, Rubrik’s Chief Customer Officer, Giri Iyer, was joined by Minister for Finance, Michael McGrath TD for a ribbon cutting ceremony last Friday.

'Continued Investment'

"Cybersecurity, and recovering from ransomware in particular, is a top concern of both the business and government sectors at the current time and Rubrik is an established leader in the industry," said Minister for Finance, Michael McGrath.

He added, "I am pleased to see Rubrik experience such strong growth since its establishment in Cork in 2017 and I welcome its continued investment in nurturing talent, underpinned by its close partnership with local universities.”

'Double Headcount'

Chief Customer Officer at Rubrik, Giri Iyer added, “The depth of talent we are able to access in Ireland has driven significant local growth. When we originally announced expansion to the region in 2018 we had plans for 50 new jobs in Cork.

"Since then, we have nearly doubled this headcount across engineering, customer support, and sales."
