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.”
