Dublin travel platform Roomex will hire 70 people this year


Roomex is seeking hybrid and remote workers globally as it plans an ambitious expansion into the United States.

Dublin-based business travel platform Roomex plans to double its workforce by more than 70 employees this year after seeing record growth in 2021.

New roles will be in product management, finance, marketing, software engineering and systems administration, as well as remote sales roles in the United States.

Roomex is a travel platform designed for mobile workers. It helps clients to book, manage, pay and analyze all accommodation and travel expenses. The company said its platform is ideal for businesses that do project-based work that can’t be done behind a desk.

While most of the Irish company’s current vacancies are based in Dublin, it is looking for hybrid and fully remote workers around the world.

Its platform has a strong presence in Ireland and the UK and was launched in the German market in 2019. Roomex now plans to expand into the US, having secured its first business in the region last December.

“Despite the disruption to the travel industry since the onset of Covid-19, we have grown our 2021 revenues well above pre-pandemic levels,” said Roomex CEO Garry Moroney.

“Between the great traction in Germany and entering the US market, it’s been an exciting time at Roomex. Attracting the right people to help us scale our business is key to our continued success. »

As part of its growth plans, Roomex recently announced strategic partnerships with rail travel platform Trainline and global business travel payments manager AirPlus International. In the United States, Roomex partners with the Global Business Travel Association to share expertise and conduct research on workforce travel issues.

Founded in Dublin in 2004, Roomex also has offices in Boston, London and Munich. The company raised €8 million in Series A funding in 2018 to help fuel its product development and market expansion.

In 2020, it launched RoomexPay to help customers get better visibility into their spending and launched the Roomex mobile app three months later.

Clients include Musgrave, Dairygold, Dornan Engineering and Mitsubishi.
