Three months after partnering with the Booksellers Association of UK and Ireland Kobo is excited to expand their footprint in the Irish market. Today, Kobo is pleased to announce that we have established a software development centre in Dublin, Ireland. This exciting venture is being supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.

The centre will focus on software development support for Kobo's worldwide partners , as well as localisation and feature enhancement for its local markets.  The company chose to open the Dublin development centre because of the highly qualified people working in the country’s software development sector. Through this partnership, Kobo has created 30 new jobs in the Irish market.
