Surpasses 10 Million Reviews and Salary Reports for More Than 445,000 Employers
MILL VALLEY, CA -- (Marketwired) -- Oct 28, 2015 -- Glassdoor, the world's most transparent jobs and recruiting marketplace, today announced it is expanding its presence in Europe, announcing plans to open an office in Dublin, Ireland as it launches a localized Irish website (https://www.glassdoor.ie) and mobile apps. This expansion comes as Glassdoor surpasses 10 million employee-provided reviews, ratings, salary reports and other workplace insights for more than 445,000 companies around the globe.
The company plans to open its Dublin office as its European headquarters in January 2016 and estimates up to 100 jobs will be created over the next three years. Dublin is the second European office for Glassdoor, which opened an office in London in 2014.
While Glassdoor expands its global footprint, the company has also grown substantially within the United States, becoming the fastest-growing job site in the U.S., and surpassing CareerBuilder.com in U.S. traffic(1). No other site combines job listings with such a vast array of user-generated content provided anonymously by employees revealing what it is really like to work at a company. What sets Glassdoor's user-generated content apart is the depth and breadth of detail -- for example, within a salary report on Glassdoor, job seekers can not only see annual salary or hourly pay, but they can also see cash bonus, stock bonus, tips and other forms of financial compensation, all specific to job title and company.
"Since the day we launched, Glassdoor has appealed to people around the world and our focus remains on bringing greater workplace transparency to job seekers and employers in every country. While today marks another exciting milestone in Glassdoor's growth, we're still just scratching the surface of what we're capable of," said Robert Hohman, Glassdoor CEO and co-founder. "Not only are we proud to see our business grow, we're also excited to grow as an employer and welcome aboard talented professionals throughout Ireland and beyond."
Glassdoor is a two-sided marketplace with active participation from employers in addition to employees and job seekers. Approximately 54,000 employers have a Free Employer Account on Glassdoor, which allows authorized company representatives to engage on the platform by responding to reviews, posting company updates, and accessing basic analytics. In addition, nearly 3,000 companies across North America and Europe are Glassdoor clients taking advantage of the company's job advertising, employer branding and display advertising products.
The company, which is actively hiring, currently employs more than 550 people, primarily located in its headquarters in Marin County, just a few miles north of San Francisco.
