Productivity player ClickUp to create 200 jobs in Dublin

All-in-one productivity platform ClickUp reveals its European HQ will open early next year in Dublin.

Fresh from raising $400m in a Series C funding round, US software firm ClickUp is to create 200 jobs in Dublin over the next two years.

ClickUp’s expansion into Dublin is already underway with active recruitment for roles across sales, customer success, marketing, support, finance and HR. ClickUp selected Ireland because of its thriving technology community, its depth of talent and the belief it would provide the best springboard for ClickUp’s continued growth in Europe.

“We have been impressed by the deep expertise and great supply of multilingual tech talent in and around Dublin, and we see our European office as playing a vital role in ClickUp’s continued global expansion”

The company’s new European HQ will provide a localised experience to the more than 275,000 European teams already using ClickUp.

Last month, ClickUp announced it had raised $400 million USD in Series C funding to reshape how teams work and give businesses a competitive advantage. This new round brings ClickUp’s total funding to $535 million USD and puts the company at a $4bn USD post-money valuation. The funding represents the largest Series C funding round to date in the workplace productivity market.

Ambitious expansion plans

“When we announced our funding last month, we promised ambitious expansion plans, and this is exactly what we’re delivering,” says Mark Stoddard, Head of International Operations at ClickUp.

“We have been impressed by the deep expertise and great supply of multilingual tech talent in and around Dublin, and we see our European office as playing a vital role in ClickUp’s continued global expansion. We’re excited to bring ClickUp to Ireland and provide a diverse range of jobs, while adding to the already world-class tech community”.

ClickUp is one of the fastest-growing SaaS companies in the world thanks to its flexible productivity platform that flexes to the way people want to work. It is the only solution that truly replaces all individual workplace productivity tools within a single, unified platform, including: project management, document collaboration, spreadsheets, chat, and goals.

In the last year, ClickUp has tripled its revenue and grew its user base from 200,000 to 800,000 teams worldwide. Businesses all over the world, including teams at McDonalds, Booking.com, and Netflix, are choosing ClickUp to meet the demands of their evolving workplaces.

The expansion into Dublin was welcomed by Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment Leo Varadkar, TD. “Dublin is the location of choice for many fast-growing tech companies and ClickUp will be a welcome addition to that landscape. We have the skills and talent to enable ClickUp to quickly scale and grow its operations and I wish the team every success as they begin this new chapter.”

ClickUp will also be investing in localised versions of its platform for France, Germany and Spain to support the continued growth across Europe, with further localisations planned.

“Dublin remains a leading destination city for fast growing companies to set up their European HQ in order to internationalise their business and to serve and grow their customer base,” IDA Ireland CEO Martin Shanahan said.

“Ireland has a proven track record of being a very attractive location to software as a service (SaaS) companies looking to access a well-established talent pool to scale quickly. I wish ClickUp every success with this investment and offer the ongoing support of IDA Ireland.”
