CarGurus motor buying website to base European HQ in Dublin
An online shopping company for car buyers is to base its European headquarters in Dublin, creating 100 jobs.
CarGurus is establishing its first office outside the US and will take on the staff over the next three years. It aims to be up and running by June.
The company wants the new base to focus on building country-specific operations in Europe, including cargurus.co.uk which launched last September.
The company has been ranked one of the fastest growing businesses by Forbes and best place to work by the Boston Globe and has become the most visited car shopping site in the US, with more than 19 million unique monthly visitors and over 14,000 dealership customers.
It uses technology, data analysis and community reviews to help consumers find the deals from the best-rated local dealerships.
The investment has been supported by IDA Ireland.
