HubPeople recently confirmed it has more than doubled the size of its workforce in its native city of Douglas, Isle of Man.

The company, which is responsible for powering thousands of dating websites worldwide, now has 23 permanent members of staff working on its operations – a significant rise from 10 employees last year.

This “ambitious” growth in its workforce comes as a direct result of the increasing demand for online dating services around the world.

Over the past two years, HubPeople has also been working closely with the Department of Economic Development (DED) in order to develop a successful e-Business strategy.

The company said this coming together has been strengthened by the recent support received from the Department of Economic Development’s Financial Assistance Scheme.

Speaking about this partnership, HubPeople owner Michael O’Sullivan said: “The grant assistance afforded by DED/Government allowed us to de-risk an ambitious hiring and expansion strategy enabling further investment in key permanent local staff and facilities based in the Isle of Man.

“Helping us to succeed in improving the efficiency of our leading online dating platform and deliver significant revenue growth as a result.”

The HubPeople CEO said its staff has doubled in the Isle of Man to 23 permanent employees, and the company is currently trying to fill three more positions, with plans to have 30-35 on the island by December 2017.

Speaking about HubPeople’s success, Brian Donegan, Head of Operations for E-Business Isle of Man Government added: “HubPeople is a great Isle of Man success story, the business has a strong management team, clear commercial objectives, and is well aligned with the IOM Government e-Business strategy to develop quality sustainable jobs in the Isle of Man digital economy.”image
