Microsoft first opened its doors in Ireland in 1985 with a small manufacturing facility employing just over one hundred people. Since that time, Microsoft Ireland has grown to encompass four distinct operations at its campus in Sandyford in Dublin, employing over 1,200 full time employees and 700 full-time contract staff. Microsoft’s operations in Ireland include software development and testing, localisation, operations, finance, IT, HR and sales & marketing, both here in Ireland and across Europe, Middle East and Africa.
Microsoft Working for Small Business
Microsoft Ireland launched its Working for Small Business programme in 2012 to help smaller businesses get more of their existing technology and learn about new technologies. The programme consists of a monthly newsletter, a Linked in Group and offers free online tutorials, events, tips and tricks and more. As part of this programme, Microsoft experts will be attending the National Business Expo in the RDS to provide workshops and answer your questions.
