1,500 new jobs and brand new campus announced for Dublin by US sales firm
Fantastic news on the job front.
US-based sales firm Salesforce has announced the creation of 1,500 new jobs and a brand new campus in Dublin over the next five years.
Salesforce, who opened a hub in Dublin in 2000, just one year after the company was founded in San Francisco, revealed that all Saleforce employees in the capital will be brought together in a campus of four interconnected buildings in the Silicon Docks area of the city.
As well as the creation of 1,500 new jobs and the new campus in Dublin, Salesforce also revealed it would be donating a $1 million USD grant to Educate Together, the educational charity that runs equality-based schools in Ireland.
The new campus, meanwhile, will incorporate the protected building of the old British Rail Hotel and promises to be one of the most sustainable offices ever seen in Ireland; it will be one of the first commercial occupied nZEB (nearly Net Zero Energy Building) in Dublin and one of Salesforce’s most sustainable hubs anywhere in the world.
The all-electric building, Salesforce says, will source 100% renewable energy – including onsite solar panels with a cutting-edge integrated battery storage system – while an innovative green roof will sequester carbon, capture rainwater for alternate uses and provide an outdoor space with sweeping views of the city for all employees to enjoy.
