ReliaQuest has announced the grand opening of their first office location outside of the United States in Leopardstown, Dublin. Founded in 2007, ReliaQuest today employs over 300 staff across its three office locations in Tampa, Florida; Las Vegas, Nevada; and Dublin, Ireland. ReliaQuest plans to create 100 new jobs in their Dublin office over the next three years. These jobs will mainly be within their Security Operations Centre, consisting of security engineers, analysts and content developers.
ReliaQuest is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.
“We chose Dublin for several reasons, including its strong talent, the ease of travel back and forth from our headquarters in the US and around the rest of Europe, and the openness and focus on collaboration fostered by Ireland,” says ReliaQuest CEO Brian Murphy. “All of these things make Dublin a great place to be.”
Welcoming the announcement, Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Heather Humphreys said, “I am delighted to see ReliaQuest open their first European office in Dublin. This will result in the creation of over 100 highly skilled jobs and they will join a growing cluster of cyber security firms already based here. This is an exciting announcement in an increasingly important sector and I wish them every success.”
Commenting on the announcement, IDA Ireland’s CEO Martin Shanahan said, “Ireland has become a significant base of international technology and security companies thanks to a growing, well-educated and flexible workforce with a rapidly increasing graduate output. I am delighted that ReliaQuest chose Ireland to be the location for its international expansion. As a committed member of the EU, overseas companies increasingly look to Ireland as a base from which to serve its customers in the region.”

In 2018, ReliaQuest was ranked one of FORTUNE Magazine’s Best Workplaces in Technology, selected for Entrepreneur’s Top Company Cultures list, ranked No. 214 on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, and Murphy was chosen as one of Florida Trend’s Florida 500 Most Influential Business Leaders of 2018.

“We will double in size in all of our locations across the US and in Dublin in 2019 and continue that trend for the foreseeable future. We have a history of focused and rapid growth, and Ireland is a big part of that growth,” says Murphy.
