Press Release 10 Apr 2014

April 10, 2014 - Dublin – SurveyMonkey, the world's leading online questionnaire platform, today announced that it will open an office in Dublin, employing more than 50 people in the first twelve months of operations to support the company’s many existing Irish and European customers.  New employees will join the existing international team that is relocating to Dublin from the company’s Lisbon office.

SurveyMonkey is trusted by millions of companies, organisations and individuals around the world to gather the feedback they need to make better decisions. These customers use SurveyMonkey’s online and mobile platform to create, send and analyse questionnaires on any given topic.  Beyond market research, some of the most popular uses of the product are to gauge customer satisfaction and conduct employee performance reviews.  SurveyMonkey’s robust analytics engine enables at-a-glance data analysis to make smart, fast decisions.

The company will be hiring for a wide variety of roles ranging from account management to customer support.  Recruitment starts immediately and job positions can be found online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/mp/job-listings/

Luis Franco, VP, International Operations, SurveyMonkey said:  “Helping our customers understand how to use our platform to get the answers they need is our top priority.  This new office will ensure we can further educate our international customers, all from a central multi-lingual, multi-cultural location. The convergence of language talent, technology know-how and cultural savvy makes Dublin the ideal base from which we can meet the needs of our international customers.”

The Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD, said: “A key part of the Government’s Action Plan for Jobs is attracting more ‘born-on-the-internet’ companies to Ireland. We have seen significant success in this area, with most of the biggest names on the internet establishing offices here, and Dublin can now claim with justification to be the internet capital of Europe. Today’s announcement by SurveyMonkey that it is establishing an office in Dublin which will employ over 50 people is a great boost for our plans in this area, and I wish them every success with this project”.

Welcoming today’s announcement, Barry O’Leary, CEO, IDA Ireland said:  “SurveyMonkey is yet another example of a high growth Internet Company establishing a presence in Dublin to serve its growing customer base.    SurveyMonkey is one of a number of companies from Silicon Valley that have chosen to locate a strategic part of their international operations in Dublin.
