The Israeli company HiBob has chosen Portugal to set up its new European tech hub.

The hub will be located on Lisbon’s Avenida da Liberdade. HiBob, which operates a human resources platform that aims to transform the way organisations operate in the modern world of work, will create 70 new job posts in Portugal over the next 12 months.
According to the company, the amount of investment “involves several millions of euros”. HiBob has appointed João Ferro Rodrigues as the managing director of HiBob in Portugal.
“We will create around 70 new jobs for technology professionals over the next 12 months from a recruitment process that is already underway”, said Ronni Zehavi, co-founder and CEO of HiBob in a statement to the news source ECO.
The choice of Portugal has to do with the country’s rapid growth which is now “one of the most important technology hubs in Europe, with a lot of talent moving to the country recently”.
“Over the years, many large companies have set up in Portugal from all over the world. Many technology companies and platforms are also concentrated in Portugal, attracted by its talent pool”, adds Zehavi.
Since Q4 of 2021, HiBob has doubled in size with 380 new staff contracts, as well as opening new offices in Berlin which covers its business activities in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, and now Lisbon.
These two new offices will join existing offices in Tel Aviv, Sydney, Amsterdam, London and New York.
The company has seen its client base grow by around 133% and its platform is used by 2,500 companies, including Fiverr, HappySocks and VaynerMedia, among many other technology companies.
