Since its launch in 2011, MessageBird has built a global cloud communications platform that makes it possible for consumers to communicate with businesses in the same way they do with their friends and family - on their preferred channels, on their preferred timelines and with all the context of previous conversations.
More than 15,000 customers have taken advantage of the MessageBird platform including globally recognized brands such as Lufthansa Airlines, Hugo Boss, Rituals Cosmetics, Google and SAP to fast growing startups such as Hello Fresh, SuitSupply and Uber.
MessageBird currently has nearly 250 employees supporting customers around the world from offices in Amsterdam, San Francisco, London, Hamburg, Sydney, Shanghai, and Singapore.
Welcoming the announcement, Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Heather Humphreys said, "I am delighted to welcome MessageBird, one of Europe's fastest-growing companies, as it opens its new office in Dublin, which will employ 50 people over the next two years.
