Salesforce has announced its all-new Salesforce Tower in Dublin, significantly expanding the company’s regional headquarters in Ireland. As part of the expansion, Salesforce plans to add 1,500 new local jobs over the next five years.
Speaking at the announcement, An Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar TD said:
“Salesforce is an important part of our technology sector, helping Ireland become the tech capital of Europe and one of the most globalised and open economies in the world. Ireland is open to investment, to capital, to trade, to talent and to creativity.”
In addition to the new office space, Salesforce.org, the philanthropic arm of Salesforce, also announced a $1 million grant to Educate Together, supporting the opening and running of schools in Ireland. Today’s announcements were made with the Irish Prime Minister, An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar TD at an event in the Convention Centre Dublin where nearly 1,000 Salesforce employees were present to hear details of the new plans.
Paul Rowe, CEO of Educate Together thanked Salesforce.org for their grant saying, “The generosity of Salesforce.org will have a wonderful impact on the work of Educate Together. It will directly benefit our students, the efforts of our teachers and the many families that are seeking our model of education.”
Salesforce Tower Dublin will be an urban campus of four interconnected buildings located on North Wall Quay within Dublin’s vibrant Silicon Docks, overlooking the River Liffey. Salesforce employees are due to start moving into the 430,000 Sq ft campus in mid-2021. Salesforce Tower Dublin is being developed by Ronan Group Real Estate and Colony Capital.
Plans for Salesforce Tower Dublin will include an immersive video lobby experience; riverside paths connecting the campus to the cultural city hub; and an “Ohana Floor”, an open hospitality space for Salesforce employees, customers and partners, which will also be available for not-for-profit organisations and local community groups to use on weeknights and weekends at no cost.
