Enterprise Ireland Celebrates the Success of Starcircle During Trade Mission to the West Coast

Starcircle, one of Ireland’s leading talent technology firms, was commended at a ‘spotlight on success’ event, hosted by Deputy Prime Minister An Tánaiste Leo Varadkar and Enterprise Ireland CEO, Leo Clancy in April. The event was part of Enterprise Ireland’s trade and investment mission to the West Coast of the US. The Trade mission included visits to Seattle, San Francisco, and San Diego.

As one of three Irish companies invited as part of a key spotlight event, Starcircle was celebrated for its rapid growth and breakthrough success in the US, particularly in the San Francisco Bay Area. Recently, Starcircle secured €5.75 million in total contract value with clients in the greater San Francisco Bay Area region in 2021 into Q1 2022. 

At the event, Starcircle’s successful partnership with DoorDash, a San Francisco-based technology company that connects consumers with businesses through delivery services, was highlighted for its particular strength and partnership approach. With its innovative and data-driven approach to talent sourcing, Starcircle has sourced 40,000 candidates for DoorDash over the last six months. Starcircle plans to source further candidates for DoorDash this year, as the company expands operations in Europe and APAC. 

Starcircle founder and CEO, James Galvin, met with Tánaiste, Leo Varadkar, and Leo Clancy, CEO of Enterprise Ireland, for a private briefing to discuss the partnership and Starcircle’s plans for employment opportunities and expansion, both in Ireland and overseas. 

Following the briefing, James Galvin, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Starcircle stated, Today’s meeting signifies a very important milestone for us as a company and we are delighted to be invited by Enterprise Ireland as one of three Irish businesses flying the flag in the US. Over the past few years, we have been building and strengthening relationships with key clients along the West Coast – San Francisco, Seattle, and Silicon Valley. We help clients carve a new path in talent sourcing, using our innovative platform to source talent from a diverse pool of candidates, who may have ordinarily been outside their field of vision.”

“Our partnership with DoorDash is a prime example of how we work best. As one of our key clients, we would like to thank DoorDash for trusting us as their talent sourcing partner and look forward to continuing our journey. As a company, we are very excited to see what the future brings, both here in the US and around the world, as Starcircle continues to grow, helping clients to combat the challenges of the current talent sourcing landscape.“ 

“I’m proud to join Starcircle in San Francisco today to celebrate their latest partnership with Doordash,” mentions Leo Clancy, Enterprise Ireland CEO “Starcircle embodies Irish innovation through their unique approach to global talent sourcing. I have no doubt they will continue to succeed in the United States and other global markets.”

Enterprise Ireland’s work with Starcircle helped them to make an impact on the talent sourcing of DoorDash, a household name in the US. Their partnership has strengthened the relationship between Ireland and the US which was recognized by several leaders during the trade mission to the West Coast of the US.
