SAP creates 100 jobs in Ireland

Co-CEOs Bill McDermott and Jim Hagemann also extend their contracts to 2017

SAP has announced that it has started recruiting for 100 jobs, which includes software development and engineering roles.

The jobs will be based at the IT giant's Irish operations in Dublin and Galway, where SAP provides services and support for its customers in EMEA and the US.

SAP currently employs more than 1,100 people in Ireland. The new jobs are thanks to the extension of its Citywest site, which is being supported by regional development agency IDA Ireland.

In May, SAP Business Objects revealed it was adding 75 staff to its Dublin site, in roles including technical support.

Separately, SAP has today announced that its supervisory board has voted to extend the contracts of co-CEOs Bill McDermott and Jim Hagemann through to 30 June 2017.

McDermott and Hagemann were appointed co-CEOs on 7 February 2010. McDermott joined SAP in 2002, while Snabe started his career at SAP in 1990.
