Press Release 21 Oct 2016

Dublin, 21st October 2016 – Wrike, a leading provider of work management software as a service for the enterprise, today announced the opening of the company’s new Dublin office that will support its ongoing expansion into Europe; one of Wrike's fastest growing markets with 30% year-over-year growth in EU customers. The firm also recently opened a new data center in Amsterdam. To help support this growth, the company has rounded out its European leadership team, adding Alexander Belenky as VP of Sales, EMEA.

Wrike began operations in Dublin over one year ago, but quickly outgrew its office space and has outpaced its own expectations for growing its team. It currently employs 25 in Dublin and plans on increasing that total to 80 over the next three years – a number well above the 50 jobs projected when it selected Dublin as it’s European headquarters in 2015. The jobs are being created with the support of the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland. 

Belenky brings over a decade of experience in technology sales leadership to Wrike. Previously, he served as Head of Large Customer Sales at Google’s EMEA headquarters in Dublin where he directed business and sales operations across Google’s wide range of solutions. His introduction to Wrike came at Google, where he used the company’s platform to collaborate with his teams and clients.

“We are impressed by the tech community in Ireland and aim to build a dynamic and ambitious team in Dublin that will support Wrike’s fast growth and dedicated customer service. We have grown at a record pace over the past few years and our European headquarters will market and support Wrike prospects and customers across Europe.” Wrike Founder and CEO Andrew Filev

Minister of State at the Department of Finance Eoghan Murphy TD added, “The government continues to target fast-growing technology companies to invest in Ireland and make us a part of their growth from the earliest possible stage. Wrike is a hugely exciting software company, growing rapidly and selling cutting edge products and services around the world. It is heartening to see the company take this space and continue to recruit and build their team here.”

Welcoming the announcement IDA Ireland CEO Martin Shanahan said, “Wrike’s decision to establish its European headquarters in Dublin is a very positive endorsement of Ireland’s reputation as a tech hub in Europe and the location of choice for innovative, high-growth companies.”

Headquartered in San Jose, California, Wrike is a new class of business software built to power today’s digital workplace, where workers and businesses deal with more data, more collaboration and move faster than ever before. Wrike’s unique ability to manage complex digital work with ease is driving its expansive growth. 

The demand for new collaboration tools is skyrocketing as companies look for ways to maintain employee productivity in an atmosphere of fast-paced and often overwhelming digital work. Companies choose Wrike because it is easy enough for individual workers to use, yet powerful and scalable enough to manage large, complex work and projects. Customers include Google, Hootsuite, AT&T, Adobe and Hawaiian Airlines.
