The announcement comes as part of the Silicon Valley-based tech company’s plans to further expand its presence in Ireland and Europe.
Rubrik offers cloud data management, with data protection, search, analytics, archival and copy data management services.
The new roles, which include customer support, IT and sales, will be based at Rubrik’s office at the IDA science and technology park on Model Farm Road.
The announcement was made by David Stanton, Minister of State at the Department of Justice, together with Arvind Nithrakashyap, co-founder and chief technology officer at Rubrik, and Giri Iyer, senior vice president of customer support and success at Rubrik.
Mr Stanton welcomed the new roles as a ‘major vote of confidence’ in Cork.
