A technology company has announced almost 250 jobs in Dublin today.

eShopWorld - which provides e-commerce solutions- is to grow its workforce to 400 people by 2019.

Since it was established in 2010 by CEO Tommy Kelly, the team has grown from 6 to 150 with offices in six countries across America, Europe and Asia.

The company creates online shopping platforms for clothing companies which allows these companies to offer a local shopping experience for their customers in each country at the point of sale, customer service, shipping and returns sections of the website.

Over €25million is to be invested in the company over the next three years, with around 80 jobs being added each year.
