Trip Advisor to establish Engineering hub in Dublin Ireland & create 50 jobs

September 30th 2013

The world’s largest travel website is to establish a new engineering hub in Dublin. The hub is the largest of its kind to be established outside of the United States by TripAdvisor, and will see at least 50 high quality web engineering roles created in the short term alone. The company is to locate in the area known as Silicon Docks and recruitment for the new positions will begin immediately. The Dublin hub will be a centre for key engineering roles globally, working closely with TripAdvisor’s world-class team of engineers in the US to deliver new and improved features to TripAdvisor’s platforms - including its core TripAdvisor websites, Vacation Rentals, and TripAdvisor for Business products.

Andy Gelfond, SVP Engineering and Operations, TripAdvisor said: “As a global and growing company, we need to expand the places where we can find best-in-class talent. Given the robust roles we are looking to recruit, we felt it was important to base our new engineering hub in a location that had a history of supporting technology and innovation, and had a talent pool to recruit from, and in that respect Dublin fits the bill perfectly.”“Establishing our first European engineering hub in Dublin is a significant milestone for our company .

Lars Holzman has been selected as Engineering Site Manager of the new Dublin hub, and is tasked with overseeing the integration of the new office into TripAdvisor’s global network, including working closely with TripAdvisor’s existing world-class engineering team in the US. Lars most recently managed the team responsible for TripAdvisor’s Metasearch feature, a major site enhancement that allows users to see real-time hotel room prices and availability from a range of booking partners, all on one page.
