Unsure about H1B eligibility

Not your average story but here goes.

In 2000 I over stayed for 3 years.

In 2007 I tried to re enter the US but got refused.

In 2010 I married my long term GF who is a US citizen.

In 2011 I was allowed in to the US on a 1 time entry visa to go to my Father-in-law's funeral, they told me it was for humanitarian reasons and that a ban was in place. They said after the ban (2014) I would need to apply every time for a tourist visa through the embassy

Today I was offered an interview for a company in Ireland who said the position would involve extensive travel to the US and possibly even a relocation.

Will my previous history and ban mean I can't be sent to the US by a company? Is it even worth going to the interview?

There is a NIW, best to make sure that your prospective Employer knows in advance there will be issues.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
