Car shopping website – CarGurus – which is used by 19 million consumers and 14,000 car dealers in the United States, is to establish its European headquarters in Dublin – the company’s first branch outside of the US. This IDA Ireland-supported investment is expected to result in 100 new jobs over the next three years.
CarGurus uses search technology, data analysis and community reviews to help consumers find the best car deals from the best-rated local dealerships.
Founder and CEO of CarGurus, Langley Steinert, said that Dublin gives the company access to the “exceptional talent” it needs to propel its continued success in Europe and that the company was looking forward to joining the “vibrant tech community” in Dublin.
“CarGurus is coming to Ireland for our talent and to be part of the community of tech companies that now call Ireland home.”
Martin Shanahan (chief executive of IDA Ireland) said that Ireland continues to attract the best and brightest of the world’s technology companies.
“CarGurus is coming to Ireland for our talent and to be part of the community of tech companies that now call Ireland home. CarGurus’ base here in Ireland will allow them to continue expanding their company into new European markets,” he added.
