Squarespace, a US-based all-in-one website publishing platform, plans to establish its EMEA Headquarters in Dublin along with the creation of 100 new jobs.

The initiative is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise, and Innovation through IDA.

Based in New York City, Squarespace is a website publishing platform that allows anyone to easily create professional blogs, web pages, stores, and galleries without touching a line of code.

The completely inclusive, all-in-one service provides hosting, content management, domain names, social integrations, e-commerce, and 24-hour customer support.

The Squarespace operation in central Dublin will serve Squarespace customers around the globe and will include a variety of customer care roles.

"We chose Dublin as our first location outside of New York City over many others in Europe," said Anthony Casalena, Founder and CEO of Squarespace. "Dublin offers us a friendly, young, and talented workforce in a vibrant center city location. It's the perfect choice for Squarespace."

Barry O'Leary, CEO of IDA Ireland, said, "Three years ago IDA Ireland formed a division specifically tasked with finding high-growth companies such as Squarespace, whose products make world-class web design accessible to anyone in an easy-to-use package. From our first contact with the firm in New York almost 12 months ago, we have been assisting Squarespace in their plan to open an office in Ireland. Squarespace will join a number of other IDA-backed Internet companies in the Dublin area."
