TikTok Focuses on User Trust Creating 200 New Jobs in Ireland

By Ding Yi / Nov 11, 2020 05:37 PM / World

TikTok plans to create 200 new jobs in Ireland in the next three months, two-thirds of which will be in area of trust and safety, according to a report by the Irish Times. The announcement comes as the short video app is facing questions by the U.S. government over its handling of users’ data,

The non trust and safety roles will be split between the commercial team and other units, the report said. The new recruitment round will push TikTok’s total headcount in Ireland above 1,100, compared with 20 at the beginning of this year.

In January, TikTok established a new trust and safety hub in Dublin to drive localized content policy approach, making the Irish operation one of TikTok’s three regional centers.

The goal of building the trust and safety team in Dublin is to “ensure our overall approach complements local culture and context” in compliance with Irish laws and regulations, Cormac Keenan, head of the team, told the Irish Times.

In less than a year, Ireland has rapidly emerged as a vital center for TikTok’s European operations. In August, TikTok’s global chief security officer Roland Cloutier announced plans to invest 420 million euros ($496 million) in building a new data center in Ireland which is set to open in early 2022 and will play a key role in protecting data from the app’s European users.

Apart from Ireland, TikTok also reportedly plans to hire about 3,000 engineers in several other European countries, Canada, Singapore and the U.S. over the next three years, with the U.S. remaining one of its engineering hubs.
