The US-based software company, specialising in developing game content for PC, console, wireless and handheld platforms as well as supporting technologies and services, hopes to create 40 jobs over the next 5 years at the Digital Hub in Dublin’s Liberties area.

TKO has said that ninety percent of the jobs will focus on third level graduates in the engineering, production and computing areas. The company will also be recruiting people with game specific expertise, particularly in animation and production.

“Dublin provides an ideal location for spearheading our overseas expansion," said Will Golby, general manager of TKO Software Limited. "Ireland has decades of experience in helping US technology companies establish successful European operations and the result is that it boasts a considerable network of knowledge and expertise as well as a deep pool of talent."

TKO, which currently employs over 150 staff in Santa Cruz, Dallas and Austin, intends to use the Irish base initially for porting, localising, testing and marketing existing game titles for wireless platforms. The company hopes to increase Ireland’s profile as a centre of development as the customer base grows in this part of the world.
