New customer relations and marketing branch to house up to 15 employees

Top Eleven developer Nordeus has followed up its expansion into Macedonia with a new office in Dublin, Ireland.

The new branch will focus on customer relations and business and marketing operations, housing around 15 employees.

The investment has been backed by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation.

“We chose Dublin because of the city’s vibrant start-up scene, great support from IDA Ireland and, of course, the opportunity to attract top class professionals in the gaming industry,” said Nordeus CEO Branko Milutinovic.

“We will be building an experienced customer relations team to focus on providing the best support for our projects and millions of players worldwide. Our business department in Dublin will work closely with our San Francisco, Skopje and Belgrade offices to put our ideas and strategies into motion.”

Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton added: “A key part of the Government’s Action Plan for Jobs is ensuring that we attract more fast-growing start-ups and emerging companies to locate in Ireland, so that they establish deep roots here from early in their growth and make a major impact on our economy.

“Both Enterprise Ireland and IDA have key roles to play in this, and last year we established a joint EI/IDA management team to target more jobs from these areas. Through continued implementation of the Action Plan for Jobs we are determined to ensure that more fast growing start-ups and emerging companies locate and develop in Ireland, creating the jobs we need.”

Nordeus-developed mobile and Facebook football management sim Top Eleven was released in 2010, and has garnered more than 11 million monthly active users.

AS well as its new Dublin office, the developer also has branches in Belgrade, San Francisco and Skopje.
