Eventbrite to create up to 15 jobs in Cork

Thursday, February 18, 2016

Eventbrite has pledged to create around 15 new jobs in Cork.

The company - a self-service ticketing and registration platform - plans to hire up to 15 full-time customer support staff and said it could grow to up to 50 employees over the next three years.

The firm - which will serve event organisers around the world - is opening a new office in Cork to support customer growth.

The company plans to hire employees who speak various languages (including German, Dutch, Italian, French and English).

Eventbrite is currently looking for a suitable location for the new office in Cork city.

“Helping our organisers run successful events lies at the heart of our company, and our global 24/7 customer support team is crucial in providing this support,” said Joel Crouch, Eventbrite’s General Manager for both Ireland and the UK.

“When we looked for a home for our growing customer support team in Europe, we searched for a place with easy access to great talent, while also affording our team members a high quality of life. That’s what we found in Cork.”

The Cork presence will be Eventbrite’s tenth office worldwide and the company’s second in Ireland.
