DUBLIN, 8 March 2018 – As part of its strategy to expand its international business, Lifesize®, a global innovator of video conferencing technology, announced a new centralised business development and customer acquisition base in Dublin, and plans to grow it by up to 4X over the next three years. In selecting a sales development location in Europe, Lifesize opted for Dublin due to its strong technology base, international talent and increasing strengths in sales development and customer acquisition.
Expanding upon the company’s decision, Anil Somaney, SVP Global Sales Development at Lifesize, stated, “The heritage of Ireland and specifically Dublin in providing a base for global technology companies is well-known, and made it an obvious choice for our own expansion. The wealth of talent attracted to working and living in Ireland means that we have access to the international, multilingual skills that will help our sales and business development accelerate across Europe.”
Craig Malloy, Lifesize CEO, added, “Ireland’s favourable business environment, connection to mainland Europe and, of course, the quality of life that attracts so many to the Emerald Isle, made it the obvious choice for our continued international expansion. I’m confident that the combination of technology and sales skills, with a truly international workforce, will act as a significant boost to our European business.”
Lifesize expects to employ up to 20 people over three years with jobs focusing on multilingual (German, French, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Swedish and Portuguese) sales operations, business development and customer success positions. The roles will include a range of skill sets, all of which will require a qualification in a relevant technology discipline. Recruitment is already underway.
The Lifesize Dublin office is located on Harcourt Street, Dublin 2.
