The positions will be in a range of areas including product, engineering, sales, customer success and operations.

Airbnb, Intercom and Reebok are among its clients.

This latest expansion is aimed at supporting the firm’s drive into Europe and the US.

"In 2022, we aim to further expand our product offering while continuing to establish partnerships with leading, global brands," said Jonathan Legge, CEO and Co-founder of &Open.

"The key to our success will be attracting the best talent possible — people who are committed to our mission of helping clients connect with their customers through sending tailored gifts on a global scale."

By the end of next year &Open expects to be employing around 160 staff.

The business has also announced a former Google, Facebook and Pinterest executive, Adele Cooper has joined it as Chief Revenue Officer.

The new investment has been welcomed by the Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Leo Varadkar.
