New jobs: Mastercard creates 130 new positions at Dublin HQ
CREDIT card company Mastercard is to create 130 jobs in Ireland. The positions will be based at its new global technology headquarters in Dublin.
The company said the expansion, backed by IDA Ireland, will bring to 200 the number of people it employs in the republic.
The "highly skilled" roles will be created during the next four years.
Rob Reeg, president of MasterCard Technologies, said: "We're confident that this larger office in Dublin, as well as the new technology team members that we plan to hire, will help further our technology agenda and innovation vision."
The company has already begun recruiting for the technology roles.
Mastercard has had an office in Dublin since it acquired technology company Orbiscom in 2008.
