Brian Drysdale, Chief Architect in iCabbi, Richard Bruton TD, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation and Gavan Walsh, Founder and CEO of iCabbi.
Howth-based taxi dispatch provider iCabbi announced that after doubling their workforce in 2015, they plan to create 20 new jobs in Research and Development, Customer Service, Sales and Marketing and Technical Support in 2016.
The jobs have been supported by the Department of Jobs through Enterprise Ireland.
iCabbi, founded in 2011 by three Irish entrepreneurs, provides taxi companies with the tools they need to compete against peer to peer apps like Uber and Hailo.
iCabbi was approached by a taxi company that wanted to create a direct link between their independent taxi drivers and their customers. In four years, the team has grown and focused on delivering projects for bigger taxi companies each time.
Gavan Walsh, Founder and CEO of iCabbi said: “2015 has been an incredible year for iCabbi. We are now the largest dispatch provider in Ireland, and throughout 2015, significantly grew our UK business, working closely with the largest and most successful taxi companies, and consolidators. We have also recently launched in the US, with 13 companies currently live, and many more scheduled for the New Year.’
‘The announcement of 20 new jobs in Dublin HQ will allow us to support these markets, and continue our ambitious expansion. There is a strong pool of high calibre talent in Ireland, we have a fantastic existing workforce and we look forward to adding to it over the coming months.’
