Sendoso sends 100 new jobs to Dublin

San Francisco company Sendoso is locating its European HQ in Dublin and intends to source local Irish products as part of its corporate gifting catalogue.

Sending platform Sendoso has revealed plans to create 100 new jobs at its new European headquarters in Dublin.

The announcement comes on the back of a $100m Series C fundraise, that will enable the company to further expand its global presence servicing over 800 B2B clients worldwide who wish to deliver modern direct mail, personalised gifts, e-gifts, and other physical impressions at scale, allowing clients to build stronger, deeper, and more trusted relationships with their customers.

“The people we hire in this next phase of our global expansion will have a direct and meaningful impact on Sendoso’s trajectory as a category leader”

Sendoso currently has over 500 employees across the US, Europe, and the Asia Pacific and will increase its workforce by 30pc by the year-end.

In an investment supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland, the new positions will cover a range of areas including software engineering, business development, supply chain and customer support with open roles already live for the new Dublin office and will provide further support for its 20,000 global users from customers including Comcast, Kimpton Hotels, Thomson Reuters, Nasdaq, eBay, and others.

Dublin: The digital gift that keeps giving

Sendoso is currently based in a temporary office, and a future permanent site will be decided shortly along with the location of the company’s warehouse where it will house its extensive gift options.

“We’re excited to be announcing these jobs for our new European HQ here in Ireland. The people we hire in this next phase of our global expansion will have a direct and meaningful impact on Sendoso’s trajectory as a category leader,” said Michelle Palleschi, president and chief operating officer at Sendoso.

“We are looking to speak with intellectually curious, smart, and kind people that will be excited by having a direct impact on our best-in-class product offering, and our customer experience. We are also seeking software engineers who want to share their knowledge and expertise and provide us with the best solutions. We believe the addition of a strong, talented workforce to the global leader of a new sector is the perfect pairing.”

Sourcing local

In addition to creating jobs, Sendoso also plans to stock locally sourced Irish products as part of it’s expanding database, meaning the company’s arrival will result in the support and strengthening of Irish SMEs.

“Sendoso is also looking forward to working with some great local providers across the country, as we expand our database of brands that will be available to our ever-growing international client base,” explained David Ryan, European HQ lead at Sendoso.

“While our sights are global, we have a firm commitment to local growth, and we intend therefore to become a real player for the Irish economy and want to work with Irish SMEs in expanding their presence not only on a national level but on a global scale,” said David Ryan, European HQ lead at Sendoso.

The company has a robust existing network of international partners and has doubled the size of its international catalogue over the past year.

Sendoso said it will use this opportunity to further accelerate their catalogue expansion by working with Irish providers of unique and bespoke products including Stillgarden Distillery, an independent distillery based in Inchicore, Dublin, Craft Direct, a supplier of high quality craft beers located in Mullingar, Westmeath, Mookie & Boo, a luxury lifestyle brand based in Greystones, Co. Wicklow and Kin_dfolk, a premium lifestyle store located in Galway city.

“Sendoso is joining a thriving tech scene of fast growing and innovative companies choosing Dublin as the preferred location to establish its European HQ,” said IDA Ireland CEO Martin Shanahan.
