The company intends to recruit one hundred highly qualified professionals by the end of 2022 to join the new multifunctional innovation and development centre in Lisbon.

PagerDuty has just announced its expansion to Lisbon, where it will set up a multifunctional innovation and development hub. The company plans to hire 100 highly skilled employees by the end of 2022, with software engineers, programmers and finance and operations professionals being the high priority positions.

“We have seen continued growth as our digital operations have become the primary infrastructure for both innovative startups and the world’s largest companies. Lisbon’s entrepreneurial culture, quality university programmes and local tech ecosystem support our ambitions to become the operations cloud for modern businesses,” said Jennifer Tejada, president and CEO of PagerDuty, quoted in a statement.

“We are excited to build our presence in Portugal in order to continue to grow our business in Europe,” the fastest-growing region in the business, with a 41% year-on-year increase in international revenues during the company’s second quarter.

PagerDuty’s presence in Lisbon – where it already has clients such as Farfetch, AiFi, Mediatree, Minicip, Unbabel and VictoriaPlum – represents an opportunity to boost hiring as the company rises to $1 billion in annual recurring revenue.

The Portuguese capital now joins offices in London, Atlanta, San Francisco, Sydney and Toronto. “We are very excited and proud to welcome PagerDuty in Portugal. Lisbon has become a destination of choice for information technology operations among companies looking to benefit from a source of highly qualified, multilingual and dynamic talent,” says Luís Castro Henriques, president and CEO of Portugal’s Agency for Investment and Foreign Trade (AICEP).
