PointsBet, a global sportsbook and igaming operator, has today announced the opening of its new European headquarters in Dublin’s Liberties. With the opening of its new Dublin office, the leading U.S. operator – with its global headquarters in Denver and licensed operations across the States, Canada and Australia – has established its first major operational presence in Europe.
 
PointsBet acquired Irish start-up Banach Technology in 2021 and has now set out its ambitious plans to grow via its team of technology and product specialists in Dublin - making it the long-term home of its European operations and a driving force behind its U.S. business plans. The company’s existing investment in its Dublin outfit already directly contributes over €5 million per annum to the local economy in taxes and ancillary economic activity.
 
The new location of PointsBet’s European operations, in Dublin 8’s The Eight Building, will be home to just over 70 highly-skilled developers, quantitative analysts and product managers from the start, with plans to expand the team further over the next 12 months.
 
Through its innovative cloud-based technology platform, PointsBet provides the full spectrum of online and retail betting and iGaming products and services to customers across key regulated US states. Boasting an elite team of experienced developers, the high-tech company leverages its software model to build, manage, and operate a self-sustaining platform including its betting engine, mobile and web-based applications, and secure cloud and land-based storage.
 
Speaking this week, PointsBet’s U.S. CEO, Johnny Aitken, "Positioning ourselves among some of the world’s most exciting tech talent in Dublin is a strategic decision that we expect will add further significant economic value in both the Irish and U.S. markets going forward. We firmly believe that through targeted investment in the creation of skilled high-tech jobs, the development of sustainable local projects and the wider promotion of US Sports in Ireland, that we can develop opportunities for further, mutually important areas of collaboration between U.S and Irish business."
