WP Engine Ireland

Our story

WP Engine Ireland was established in September 2016 in Limerick. The senior leadership team from our HQ in Austin, Texas loved the city, the people, the culture, and its potential for growth, especially with the 3rd level education institutions in the region. Starting out as a small group of Technical Support and Software Engineering teams, over the past five years, WP Engine’s Irish community has now grown to more than 120 employees across several departments.

Our famous Meet & Greets

We have enjoyed tremendous success getting to know and hiring people through our famous Meet & Greets. We host events where people interested in changing jobs are invited to attend and meet WP Engine employees. It’s an incredible opportunity to meet and network with those who are working in the type of roles you might be interested in. We offer free food and drink in a casual environment to ensure people feel relaxed and can meet with different people across the organisation. These meetings have led to attendees later going on to interview and be hired. Being fully remote and having the ability to find talent all across Ireland will only make these events more exciting!

Barrys v Lyons

We are big fans of tea at WP Engine Ireland. The great debate amongst us is our favourite brand, Barrys v Lyons, with the occasional English tea thrown in to cause an extra stir.

When we aren't working

We have a fantastic Culture Club setup. The team organises Zoom Yoga classes, HIIT classes, astro soccer, board game events,special guests (Blindboy Boatclub, Lewis Capaldi and Pat Divilly to name a few) and they send us fantastic gifts around company events and milestones.
