Yahoo to create 400 jobs in Dublin,Ireland

Yahoo announced last week that they will be creating 400 jobs in Dublin, Ireland. Yahoo’s subsidiary overture has been operating in Dublin for the past few years and employs 250 people. Dublin has a number of data centres that were created in 1999 by the IDA. A number of them have been left vacant since the dot com bubble burst in 2000/2001. So Yahoo will have their pick of locations if they so choose.
The Irish operation will be responsible for Yahoo!’s European business in three main areas: a shared-services centre responsible for accounting and revenue activities and statutory reporting; a web-hosting centre supporting databases for Yahoo!’s family of websites as well as other applications and systems; and a customer support centre, comprising a centralised multilingual support service and a website editorial team.
