Overstock has opened its new European base in the IDA’s flagship North West business park in Sligo, Ireland, and revealed it is on track to make its 100th Irish hire before year end.
The company last year announced the creation of 100 new technology jobs including senior roles in areas such as software development and testing, machine learning, and data analytics. It now has more than 80 technologists working in Sligo and is on target to recruit another 20 staff members.
The new facility was officially opened by Leo Clancy, head of technology for IDA Ireland with Overstock’s president of retail Dave Nielsen, chief administrative officer Carter Lee, and Irish-based vp/site lead David Kenny.
Overstock CEO, Jonathan Johnson, said, “When we opened our Ireland office in 2013, we knew there was something special with the tech environment of Sligo. Our Irish team has been instrumental in many of our technological innovations over the years, including advancements in machine learning, augmented reality, and blockchain applications. It’s great to open the doors to a new campus the team can grow and call home.”
