ibm dublin officeSoftware company IBM has announced Dublin and Hursley as two new bases for its ‘studio’ project.

The studio consists of designers, strategists and coders to develop products and digital marketing services around cloud, analytics, and IBM’s supercomputer- Watson.

Both Dublin’s and Hursley’s studio will focus on designing IBM products and user experiences around Watson, security, collaboration and IoT.

Studio projects will also open in Warsaw, Prague, Hamburg and Paris before the end of the year.


“People’s expectations of enterprise tech have changed because of innovative design they see in devices and apps used at work and play,” said Phil Gilbert, General Manager at IBM Design. “These studios will join a global network that is transforming how tech is created with user experience at its core.”

“This crop of new studios in Europe reinforce IBM’s continuing commitment to great design and innovation,” said Matt Candy, VP and European leader of IBM interactive experience.

“IBM has been at the forefront of design-led thinking for decades and is now busy building the biggest design team in the world. With these six new openings – and more to come next year – we’ll continue to break old models and create a new way to work.”

Only last month IBM announced 110 new cloud, collaboration and analytics software jobs at its analytics and solutions lab, with roles based in Dublin, Cork and Galway.

IBM opened its first Irish office in 1956 and currently has over 3,000 employees working across a broad range of businesses and locations throughout the country.
