Yahoo! Expanding Dublin Operations & New York Data Center

Yahoo!Yahoo! announced expansion plans to their Dublin, Ireland operations center and their data and customer care facility located in Lockport, New York. More than 200 employees will be added over the next 12 months in Dublin to support business operations in the Europe, Middle Eastern and Africa (EMEA) region.  The Lockport facility intends to add 115 new jobs.

In a statement released by Yahoo!, Ireland’s Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD, confirmed that the expansion will more than double Yahoo!’s existing Dublin workforce, stating, “Today’s announcement that Yahoo!, one of the biggest brand names on the Internet, is expanding its operations in Dublin and more than doubling its workforce here in the creation of 200 jobs is great news and further evidence that the [Government’s Action Plan for Jobs] is working. We in Government are determined to continue building on this, to attract further investments and create the jobs we need.”

Yahoo! opened its Dublin operations center in 2003, and currently provides customer care, technical and operational support, and finance-related services for the whole EMEA region. Recruiting has already begun for customer support, technology, operations, HR and finance roles at the Dublin operations center.

The 115 jobs to be added at the Lockport, New York facility will include engineering, technology and customer care positions. Yahoo!’s Lockport data center, which opened in 2010, is recognized for its energy-efficient design.

“Yahoo! is committed to being an environmentally responsible company, and we thank New York state and local authorities for working with us to ensure we continue to power our data center with clean energy,” said David Dibble, Executive Vice President of Central Technology for Yahoo!.

The new data center at Lockport will utilize the Yahoo! Compute Coop (YCC) architecture, a data center design that uses significantly less energy and water than conventional data centers. The facility’s unique shape and use of outside air-cooling for approximately ninety-eight percent of the year will eliminate the need for expensive energy intensive chillers often used to keep servers cool.

The Lockport, New York data center expansions are planned for later this year.
