The Global financial services company Fidelity Investments has announced that they are hiring for 90 new tech jobs in Ireland. Recruitment is currently underway for all the positions, which are due to be filled within the first half of 2021.  

The new full-time positions are all based within Fidelity Investments’ technology teams in Ireland. Specifically, the company is looking for full-stack engineers, Java engineers, quality engineers, front-end engineers and data engineers.  

When it is considered safe to return to the office, 60 of these roles will be based in Galway, with the rest based in Dublin.  

Last April, Fidelity Investments announced an additional 100 technology jobs in Dublin and Galway, which it says were filled within a few weeks. Recruitment for the latest roles will also be expedited using virtual hiring and onboarding processes to work around the current COVID-19 restrictions.  

The company has said that more than 170 new team members were onboarded virtually in 2020. Its process includes supports such as remote tech services and a new hire buddy system.  

General Manager of Fidelity Investments Ireland, Al Riviezzo says, “While the pandemic has been a challenge and we’ve had to adjust how we operate today, we know we’ve pivoted in a way where new hires can get excited about working at Fidelity and growing their careers with us.” 

Fidelity Investments first launched in Ireland in 1996 and its workforce now comprises 1,300 people across the east and west of the country. A majority of that growth has come in the last seven years.  

The Boston-headquartered company, which was privately owned for 75 years, has assets under administration of $9.8 trillion. Its teams in Ireland have been crucial in delivering technology, support and operations services to the global business. Fidelity Ireland is credited as offering breakthrough fintech solutions for over 32 million customers.  

Riviezzo added, “These new key technology positions will enhance our ability to meet our clients’ changing needs during the ongoing pandemic and into the future.”

The Texas-headquartered business plans to increase its Galway workforce to 300 over the next three years.  

HID Global has said it is on track to open up a new centre of excellence in the city later in the year. Having taken on 80 new staff members since 2019, it plans to increase its Irish cohort to 300 by 2023.  

The business is headquartered in Austin, Texas, and established their base in Tully, Co Galway in 2006. Currently, it employs 180 people in Ireland and over 4,000 people across the globe, with teams in Argentina, Australia, Japan, Canada, the UK, Thailand, and more. 

HID Global develops identity technologies such as ID cards, access control tools, and more. It developed the technology for Ireland’s passport card programme, which enables people travelling across Europe to use an electronic passport card instead of the traditional booklet.  

Craig Sandness, The company’s senior vice-president and head of secure issuance and citizen ID solutions, said the new Galway base will be a “state-of-the-art facility” and will serve as a “major hub for the production of access and identification-related applications”, such as electronic passports and access cards, which represent large and growing segments of HID’s business.” 

Sandness continues: “Our new facility in Galway underscores HID Global’s commitment to steadily expand our operations, R&D, supply chain, customer service, IT, finance, and other business functions to support a growing customer base across EMEA. 

The company will be looking for printers, production operators and other various technical workers at its new centre, in addition to staff across finance, IT, supply chain and customer support.  

Trevor Fox, Vice-president and site lead at HID Global Ireland, said: “Galway has been an excellent foundation for us to build from, and the continuing investment from HID to underpin our capability and growth plan can be seen as a huge boost of confidence in the area and the people behind the success.” 

“Our employees have been outstanding at adapting throughout the pandemic and this adaptability and resilience allowed us to continue business as usual and drive on with this programme of investment. We are very excited to move to this new centre of excellence from 2022.”

Clubforce is a software platform which helps sports organisations to manage data, communications and funds and they have announced 20 new jobs. The company will double its headcount in the UK and Ireland to 40 people on the back of the investment.

Warren Healy, Clubforce founder and CEO, said: “Sports organisations were already feeling a certain level of strain before the pandemic struck. Grassroots sports relies heavily on volunteers who tend to be time-poor and the pandemic has made the role far more challenging”. 

“Our plan is to provide these volunteers with a significant number of additional tools to simply make their roles easier. We know that volunteer tasks are an increasing challenge and we’re helping sports clubs to solve these challenges. The volunteers are the fulcrum around which everything else rotates in amateur sports.” 

Carole Neylon, the company’s CFO, Carole Neylon, said the recent investment will help Clubforce align its products around participation management and drive international growth. 

“Demand across the country and overseas has gone through the roof in recent months because of good marketing, good products and the effects of the pandemic,” Neylon said. “The investment and ongoing recruitment drive will give us everything we need to develop a world-class product for our loyal and increasing customer base.”
