rent the runway
When Rent the Runway was looking for a location for our first international office, Galway City won out for a number of reasons. The size of the city coupled with its proximity to the sea, the richness of Galway’s culture, access to superb software engineering talent and third-level educational institutes, as well as some of the world’s best restaurants and festivals, made Galway the ideal choice for us. As Managing Director, one of my primary objectives is to recruit best-in-class software engineering talent for our European engineering headquarters in Galway. Having worked with rapid growth companies for most of my career both in the Western region and also nationally, our search has already yielded a diverse and talented team that will contribute to the growth of this truly disruptive company. We chose a convenient city centre location so that our employees could easily commute to the office while also enjoying the highlights this great city has to offer. The redevelopment of the Galway harbour area will be a real draw for similar technology companies who see the benefits of being located in this city.
