Deem, a US based provider of mobile and cloud software technology, announced today that it will create 50 highly skilled jobs at its new European Innovation Centre in Dublin. 

The company, headquartered in San Francisco, California, "offers a suite of travel booking and management tools for corporate customers and travel management firms." 

Deem plans to hire 50 software engineers at the European Innovation Centre over the next 12 months and will further expand in 2020. 

These expansions pursue the company's overall goal of doubling its global workforce. 

"Dublin is the ideal location for our new European Innovation Centre," said John F Rizzo, President and CEO of Deem. "It's a world renowned hub for technology, innovation and excellence with an exceptional number of skilled workers, great international connections and a high standard of living."

Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Heather Humphreys described the Innovation Centre as "a welcome addition to [Dublin's] landscape" and "a reflection of how attractive Ireland is to companies working in the tech sector." 

Martin Shenahan, CEO of IDA Ireland, praised Deem's announcement as a "testament to the highly-skilled, diverse workforce we have here in Ireland" and wished the company every success in establishing their Irish operations."
