US software company ServiceNow is to create 300 jobs in Dublin over the next three years.

Opened in 2018, the firm's Dublin intellectual property and development centre initially employing 30 people, primarily across cloud operations, as well as engineering and legal roles.

This expansion will quadruple its current Dublin headcount to over 400.

The new roles, which will be created over the next three years, will be engineering and digital sales focused, with hiring across marketing, finance, legal and other corporate functions.

IDA Ireland said the 300 new roles are an endorsement of Ireland's attractiveness as a destination for technology companies.

Taoiseach Micheál Martin described the announcement as a huge vote of confidence by the firm in Ireland's technology ecosystem and talent base.
