Udemy announced yesterday the opening of an expanded office in Dublin with the creation of 100 jobs. The new office opening represents continued investment in the company’s EMEA headquarters, follows a milestone growth year, and a recent commitment by long-time Japanese strategic partner Benesse Holdings to invest $50 million in the company.
The largest global marketplace for learning and teaching online plans to double its employee presence in Dublin in the next year. In addition to growing the Dublin office, the company continues to expand and invest in its offices around the world, including its San Francisco headquarters as well as offices in Denver, Colorado; Gurgaon, India; São Paulo, Brazil; and Ankara, Turkey.
The new Udemy office in Dublin features designer space of nearly 2,000 square meters with an open-concept kitchen where its nearly 100 Dublin-based employees gather daily for catered lunch and snacks. Light-filled conference rooms are equipped with the latest video-conferencing technologies to ensure seamless communications across Udemy global offices.
Speaking yesterday, Udemy CEO, Gregg Coccari said, "As a global business with a mission to improve lives through learning, Udemy is proud that we selected Dublin as our EMEA hub back in 2014. As we significantly expand our Dublin presence by building out our own space, we are reminded of what initially drew us to Ireland: world-class technical and business talent and an accessible base for the larger region."
