The American software development company LogMeIn will create 200 jobs in Dublin.
The new functions will be in customer service, sales, marketing, human resources, legal and technology, and will be fulfilled in the next three to five years.
LogMeIn, which is a software developer working remotely, has opened its headquarters in Europe in the Middle East and Africa in 2012 and employs 176 people in several areas.
With the increased demand for remote work, the company now has millions of customers around the world using its cloud-based services and continues to expand.
To meet this demand, the Boston-based company relocated to a new office in the Reflector Building on the Grand Canal Dock.
The additional 200 employees in Ireland are part of LogMeIn's plans to increase its workforce globally by 1,000 over the next three to five years.
Bill Wagner, CEO of LogMeIn, said the investment would help the company stay focused on competitiveness and new product development.
The investment is supported by the Department of Jobs, Business and Innovation through IDA Ireland, which received the news.
