US software development company LogMeIn is to create 200 jobs in Dublin.

The new roles will be in customer service, sales, marketing, legal, human resources and technology and will be filled over the next three to five years.

LogMeIn, which is a remote working software developer, first opened its European Middle East and Africa headquarters in the capital in 2012 and employs 176 people across a range of areas.

As demand for remote working increases, the company now has millions of customers across the world using its cloud based services, and continues to expand.

In order to be able to meet that demand, the Boston headquartered firm has moved to a new office in the Reflector Building in Grand Canal Dock.

The 200 additional staff in Ireland form part of LogMeIn's plans to increase its workforce globally by 1,000 over the next three to five years.

LogMeIn CEO Bill Wagner said the investment would help the company retain its focus on competitiveness and develop new products

The investment is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland, which has welcomed the news.
