Gong’s technology empowers sales and other customer-facing teams by automatically capturing and analysing customer interactions, providing insights to improve deal execution and team performance.

“This expansion demonstrates the company’s commitment to Ireland and will allow it to benefit from our rich talent pool for years to come,” said Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment Leo Varadkar TD.

“The announcement from Gong once more underscores Ireland’s position as a global hub for leading technology firms seeking to grow and develop their operations. I wish the team at Gong every success with this expansion.”

The company has been rated a “best place to work” several times, most recently by Glassdoor and Great Place To Work. The Gong platform has been ranked the best software product according to customer reviews and the company has been named one of the fastest-growing US-based private companies.

“At Gong, we are on a mission to unlock reality to help people and companies reach their full potential,” said Wendy Harris, Vice President of EMEA at Gong.

“Our focus on people is at the very heart of our business, as evidenced by Gong’s numerous ‘best workplace’ awards. We are building a talented team in Dublin that will be responsible for spearheading Gong’s expansion across EMEA.”

Gong has nearly 3,000 customers globally, of which over 300 are headquartered in Europe including Cognism, Wayflyer, Teamwork and Quinyx.

Conor O’Sullivan, Head of Global Sales at Dublin-based Wayflyer, explained, “the insights we get from Gong have been transformational for our sales team and functions across the entire business. Gong has exponentially improved our ability to execute and build a learning environment for our sales team.”

IDA Ireland CEO Martin Shanahan emphasised how Dublin is a leading destination for fast-growing companies.

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