Plynk has announced that they will be creating a total of 40 jobs across a number of different departments at its Dublin headquarters.

One of Ireland's leading fintech companies, Plynk closed a €25m fundraising deal earlier this year, with Suisse Privee, a private investment trust.

Charles Dowd, CEO and co-founder of Europe’s first money messaging app said Plynk's growth plan from the start was simple - ‘become a verb, in every European language'.

"Following our successful raise of €25m this mission has only intensified. We plan to expand further into Europe with eyes on Spain and Portugal next, and have every intention of becoming the de-facto pan-European money-messaging app," he said.

"The new roles offer an exciting opportunity to be part of a leading fintech organisation, continuing with the development of our core product and building more features that are unique to the social payments industry"

Founded in 2015 by Charles Dowd and Clive Foley, Plynk allows consumers to avail of instant, effortless and transparent transfer of money among friends.

Linked to users’ Facebook accounts, Plynk consumers can send money as a message to a single contact or in-group chats instantly and with no fees. Users receive a dedicated IBAN and virtual Mastercard for online payments.

The new roles at Plynk include back end software engineers, UX designers, mobile app developers and customer service representatives based out of their offices near Camden Street, Dublin City Centre.
