US technology group Equifax is to hire 100 people at its new information technology (IT) talent centre in Dublin, bringing its Irish workforce up to almost 200.
The centre, located on Sir John Rogerson’s Quay, will focus on developing innovative new solutions to support Equifax operations around the world, and adds to the company’s existing operation in Wexford.
“We have made a big bet on Dublin as we recognise the technology talent pool is strong and the market can support Equifax’s increasing demand for bold, innovative thinking,” said Paul O’Dwyer leader of the Dublin centre. “Talent that is interested in working with a globally recognised leader in consumer, commercial and workforce information solutions that anticipates customers’ needs by delivering unparalleled customised insights through innovative data solutions is encouraged to apply.”
Founded in 1889, Equifax gathers and maintains information on over 600 million consumers worldwide and over the years has evolved its business model from a traditional consumer credit focus to a company that uses unique trusted data, technology and innovative analytics to help its customers make informed decisions.
Equifax’s Wexford operation houses its database management, customer and consumer activities in relation to its consumer credit referencing services for UK-based clients. It opened in 1994 and employs approximately 90 full-time employees.
