A US software company with an office in Blanchardstown in Dublin is to create 60 to 80 new jobs.  

Guidewire Software, which provides software products to the global insurance industry, is to begin recruitment for the new jobs immediately. 

The company was founded in California in 2001 and established an office in Dublin in 2011. It currently employs 150 people.   

Guidewire has offices in the US, Canada, China and a number of other European countries, but after today's announcement its Irish office will be the largest operation outside of the US. 

The new roles include software engineers, web and mobile developers, product managers and technical consultants. 

The company is to lease additional office space to accomodate the expanding workforce.
