The US company, which is based in Minneapolis, builds and manages online businesses for more than 40,000 software publishers, manufacturers, distributors and online retailers.
The jobs will be for computer software graduates and engineers. The Minister for Enterprise and Employment MicheÃ¡l Martin made the announcement in Shannon this morning. Shannon Development is supporting the project.
The company builds and manages online business for more than 40,000 software publishers, distributors and online retailers, and recently secured the giant Microsoft company as a customer.
