Online retailer Gilt is expanding its Irish operations and expects to hire up to 45 new staff over the next two years.
The New York-based company already employs 150 people at its Dublin and Limerick offices. It is to establish a research centre in Ireland which will look at ways to improve Gilt.com's online offering to consumers.
The company said it expects to create 45 software engineering roles at the Platform Innovation Centre.
Gilt specialises in a niche of online retailing known as flash-sales. It offers limited amounts of heavily discounted designer fashion brands to its members for a short period of time. New merchandise is put up for sale on the site each day at midday in New York.
IDA chief executive Barry O'Leary said Gilt would join "many other companies" in Dublin that had chosen to open software engineering operations.
"Gilt has spoken of the deep talent pool that they see in Ireland for software engineers - this is a view we hear from many of our client companies," he said.
