California-based Strava, the developer of a leading sports social platform with more than 88 million users, has opened a new office in Dublin, Ireland, to better serve its European customers. The opening will also allow Strava to access the city’s diverse technology talent pool.

The company has created ten full-time jobs in Dublin in product, design, engineering and community management. It also plans to double the office’s headcount.

The international expansion follows a period of rapid growth for Strava, which is currently adding two million users every month.

“Expanding in Dublin is a great opportunity for our growing company to become a technology leader in Ireland and the EU, and our team will do this by remaining steadfastly committed to our athlete community,” said chief executive officer Michael Horvath in a press release. “Proximity to our UK office and our large and highly active European athlete community ensures our Ireland-based team will make huge contributions toward fulfilling our mission and sustaining our company culture.”

Strava is supported by the Irish government through investment promotion agency IDA Ireland. Dónal Travers, head of technology, consumer and business services at IDA Ireland, said: “Strava’s decision to set up here is very welcome and will add to the cluster of sports tech companies operating here. Ireland remains a stable and highly predictable investment location for high-growth companies due to our deep talent base and access to the EU market.”

The new branches will complement Strava’s existing office locations in Denver, Colorado, US, and Bristol, UK.
