A US fintech firm is expanding its workforce in Ireland with the creation of 150 jobs at its Dublin site.

Equifax expects to fill the new vacancies over the next 12 months, which will bring the number of its employees here to over 350.

The Atlanta-headquartered company opened a new IT development centre on Sir Rogerson's Quay last September.

"We said last year that we were betting on Dublin to deliver the talent we need, and that bet has paid off significantly," said Paul O’Dwyer, IT Development Centre Leader.

The credit-monitoring giant also has a separate facility in Wexford which it set up over 20 years ago.

Equifax organises and analyses data on more than 820 million consumers and more than 91m businesses worldwide.

Mark Rohrwasser, Interim Chief Information Officer at Equifax said that Ireland today is a globally recognised tech hub.

"We are building a diverse, highly-skilled team who are at the forefront of excellence in innovation...It’s exciting to be part of Dublin’s highly-sophisticated technology market."

The company has commenced hiring for the 150 vacancies with a goal of filling all positions over the next 12 months at the Dublin office.
