Mastercard to hire 175 in Dublin to drive payments innovation

Mastercard has announced plans to bolster its footprint in Ireland by hiring 175 new technical staff at its facility in Leopardstown, Dublin.

The company will hire software engineers, blockchain and cloud infrastructure specialists, data scientists, analysts, project managers, information security experts and product designers.

Mastercard said that the new employees will primarily focus on expanding its innovation in payments and security solutions, among others.

Mastercard Ireland country manager Sonya Geelon said: “At our Dublin office, we’re working on innovations that will shape the future of payments not just in Ireland, but all around the world.

“We’re driving projects that promote financial inclusion at home and abroad, and are working to provide consumers, businesses and governments with the most innovative, safe and secure ways to pay.”

The Leopardstown facility, which is the global headquarters of the research and development unit Mastercard Labs, currently operates with 380 employees.

In addition to developing new technologies, the office partners with various banks and credit card issuers to provide safe and secure payment solutions for both consumers and merchants in the country.

Mastercard Labs executive vice-president and head Ken Moore said: “Ireland is the heart of our global innovation efforts – throughout Mastercard, Dublin is admired as a key technology hub – we’re looking to replicate the innovation culture we’ve fostered here in our offices around the world.

“We need great minds who can look outside of Mastercard’s traditional payments expertise and create solutions to benefit our customers around the world, and I’m excited to grow our business here.”
