Various roles




"I found my first rental property ot the tender young age of 17 when I was at the very first stages of my professional career making the big move from Galway to Dublin. Daft has continued to play an important role in my life ever since, having rented every property I’ve ever lived in on Daft and eventually using it to buy our home.When the role with Distilled was advertised I immediately felt connected to it. During the interview process I was immediately sold. Everyone was so friendly, I loved the ethos and the culture of the company and the passion that everyone displayed for the company was infectious."

Orla Ryan
Key Account Director

"Everyone in Distilled is on one team, and you don't get that in a lot of other companies"

Fergus Mc Hugh
Product Team Manager

"From the interview I knew that the Distilled culture was exactly what I was looking for. You get to work on projects that you would want to use, and you can see clearly how it will benefit the end user. Getting that kind of real-time feedback from your users as a tester is knowledge that you can not buy."

Enda Brody
Mid Level QA Engineer

"The support I received from my managers when I decided to apply for an internal role was second to none. My manager did interview prep with me, gave me great career advice and even made sure to give me a pep talk before the interview!"

Lauren Battersby
Customer Success Executive

"I have loved working for Distilled over the years, especially during the pandemic when our “Housing Heroes” initiative provided accommodation for our doctors and nurses who needed somewhere to isolate during the Covid crisis. Feeling like I could be involved in something so important and worthwhile really made me feel honoured to be a part of such a fantastic team."

Val Sorohan
Senior Marketing Manager

"I enjoy the culture, the diversity and character of the people I work with and variety of work. At Distilled, I'm surrounded by a lot of smart and technically adept people - both brilliant software engineers and also non-technical employees who are excellent in their roles. I enjoy that it never gets boring and there are plenty of opportunities to add value. There is a rewarding feeling working together and helping each other to create software products which really help and empower people in their daily lives."

Shane Lilly
Engineering Manager

"I’ve been given all the tools and guidance needed to further my career in Distilled, but the most important thing has been the support given by my managers and leadership team with communication and confidence I could perform well in my new role."

Sayo Bittencourt
Product Designer

"I chose Distilled because it’s an Irish Company and its strategic direction is driven from Ireland, in terms of career development this was important to me."
