Software company Nitro is to open its new EMEA headquarters in Dublin as it continues its expansion in the city.

The company said the bigger office along the banks of the Grand Canal in Dublin 2 will set it up for its next stage of growth. 

Founded in Australia, Nitro set up its first office in Dublin in 2013 with just three employees.

It now employs more than 70 people in Dublin and the new office gives it the capacity to create 70 more new jobs over the next two years.

Nitro's expansion is supported by the Government through IDA Ireland.

Its software helps organisations of all sizes eliminate paper, accelerate business processes and drive digital transformation by providing PDF productivity and eSigning for all in a single solution.

"The new space provides the company with the capacity to nearly double our current team to more than 140 people," said Katie Banks, Director of People & Workplace at Nitro. 

"We want this to represent Nitro's continued commitment to our EMEA operations and headquarters in Dublin," Ms Banks added.

Mary Buckley, Executive Director of IDA Ireland said that Nitro is a leader in its space and the software engineering team will be central to developing products to better serve its growing customer base. 

"This is a time of innovation and growth for Nitro which will be ably supported by the availability of tech talent in Ireland," Mary Buckley added.
