Australian technology firm SiteMinder, the hotel industry's leading cloud platform, announced in August its plans to create 100 jobs through the opening of a new office in Galway city. The company is expanding its global network which already includes offices in Bangkok, Dallas and Sydney, and their European headquarters in London. Ireland functions as a complementary location to service hotels within the region and globally. Matheson acted as Irish advisers on the project, which is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation through IDA Ireland.

"We are delighted to join the thriving technology hub of Galway, which we have identified to be greatly aligned with our company's culture and mission of providing terrific career opportunities for local talent who are passionate about technology and can benefit from an attractive lifestyle and work-life balance," said Dai Williams, managing director for EMEA at SiteMinder.

SiteMinder already has an established customer base in Ireland, including Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel and K Club, as well as Galway's own The Connacht Hotel and The g Hotel and Spa. The company was introduced to Matheson based on our track record and reputation as the law firm of choice for international corporates doing business in and from Ireland. We offer a dedicated full-service approach to our clients, with an unparalleled level of experience and insight into the issues facing international employers operating in Ireland.
