The centre has been opened with the support of IDA Ireland, the Irish government’s agency with responsibility for attracting foreign investment.
The Dublin office will work with Kobo’s teams in Toronto, Canada to support development of Kobo’s eReading ecosystem.
“Ireland is home to some of the brightest minds in the tech sector, and we’re excited to announce the opening of the Kobo office in Dublin,” said Michael Serbinis, CEO, Kobo. “Our team in Dublin helps to deliver the best eReading experiences and localized offerings for our bookselling partners like Eason, which we announced today.”
Barry O’Leary, CEO of IDA Ireland added, “We see Kobo being used on planes, trains and at home. It’s great to have such a thriving brand name put roots down in Ireland.
“Kobo’s Dublin team will provide the software expertise and support to their customers and colleagues across the world. Kobo in Dublin will enhance Ireland’s reputation as the digital capital of Europe.”
