DUBLIN, Ireland - As part of its expansion plans, the U.S. technology firm Qualtrics has now announced its new recruitment drive in Ireland.

The company, which makes software tools that measure and interpret customer and employee feedback, is set to hire 350 people in the Irish capital.

In 2013, Qualtrics first set up operations in Dublin - which is the company's European headquarters.

Since then, the company's workbase in the country has grown to 250.

Qualtrics has now stated that it will hire 350 people over the next four years, and will be recruiting for roles in a variety of areas, including technical support and engineering, sales, finance and HR.

Further, the company is also planning to expand its Dublin city centre office, and is constructing a new building on Clarendon Row.

Commenting on the company's plans, Qualtrics CEO and co-founder Ryan Smith said, "We now work with over 1,500 organisations in EMEA and the success and growth of our business here is testament to the talent we have in Dublin. We are five years in, but we're just getting started and by expanding our footprint, we expect to continue to grow at a rapid pace and create more jobs in Dublin in the years ahead."

The company made the announcement as it marked its fifth anniversary in Ireland, where its operations are focussed on the company's sales, engineering, support services and other operations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
