Twitter hiring loads of – mostly sales – staff for its Dublin and London offices

Twitter is serious about rapidly growing its international support and sales staff.

Earlier today, the U.S. company announced a dozen or so new job openings for its recently established Dublin and London offices.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

Twitter lists the open positions on its international jobs site, indicating that it’s primarily looking for account executives and sales managers for its offices in Dublin.

Markets that Twitter is particularly interested in supporting commercially appear to be the UK and Ireland, The Netherlands and Spain.

For its London offices, the social networking company is also hiring a handful of software engineers, and it’s also – still – looking for someone to fill the full-time role of Public Policy Manager in Dublin.

As pointed out by Irish Times, we know who’s running Twitter’s European headquarters in Dublin (former Googler Stephen McIntyre, see his tweet below) but, oddly, not where the office is actually located.

What we do know if that the team is having some champagne there right now (see picture embedded at the bottom of this post).
