California-based Strava, the developer of a leading sports social platform with more than 88 million users, has opened a new office in Dublin, Ireland, to better serve its European customers. The opening will also allow Strava to access the city’s diverse technology talent pool.
The company has created ten full-time jobs in Dublin in product, design, engineering and community management. It also plans to double the office’s headcount.
The international expansion follows a period of rapid growth for Strava, which is currently adding two million users every month.
“Expanding in Dublin is a great opportunity for our growing company to become a technology leader in Ireland and the EU, and our team will do this by remaining steadfastly committed to our athlete community,” said chief executive officer Michael Horvath in a press release. “Proximity to our UK office and our large and highly active European athlete community ensures our Ireland-based team will make huge contributions toward fulfilling our mission and sustaining our company culture.”
