Glassdoor is thrilled to announce several key milestones today as part of our ongoing global expansion efforts.
We’ve now launched Glassdoor Ireland, offering Irish job seekers more than 33,000 job listings and employee insights into more than 2,600 Irish employers. Glassdoor also has plans to open an office in Dublin in January 2016, serving as our European headquarters. We estimate that 100 new jobs will be created in our Dublin office over the next three years. Dublin is now the second European office for Glassdoor, which opened an office in London last year.
Not only is Glassdoor’s global footprint growing, we continue to grow substantially within the United States too. We’re now the fastest-growing jobs site in the U.S., surpassing CareerBuilder.com in U.S. traffic*. We’re also proud to celebrate reaching 10 million company reviews, salary reports, interview reviews, benefit reviews and other workplace-related content on 445,000 companies. For perspective, we launched in June 2008 with no job listings, and 3,000 company reviews and salary reports on just 250 companies to give job seekers more information on what it’s really like to work in a specific job at a particular company.
In addition, we remain committed to helping companies recruit the best talent, and offer all employers a Free Employer Account on Glassdoor, which allows company representatives to engage with prospective talent by responding to reviews, posting company updates, and accessing basic analytics. Nearly 3,000 companies are Glassdoor clients taking advantage of job advertising, employer branding and display advertising products.
