A tech company based in Silicon Valley is to create 50 new jobs with the opening of a new office in Cork.  

Rubrik is a cloud data management company and is investing in Cork as part of its expansion in Europe. 

The company will hire staff in IT, customer support and sales.

Rubrik's new office will be based at Cork Business and Technology Park, Model Farm Road in Cork. The expansion is being supported by IDA Ireland.

IDA Ireland's chief executive Martin Shanahan described Rubrik as one of Silicon Valley's fastest growing companies. 

"The expansion of Rubrik's Irish operation demonstrates Ireland's ability to attract investment from high-growth companies," Mr Shanahan said. 

"Cork's tech infrastructure, talent pool and supportive academic network have created a compelling business environment which continues to attract investment from overseas companies in the technology sector," he added.
