A GLOBAL PAYMENTS company is to expand its headquarters in Dublin, creating 30 new jobs to bring its Irish workforce to almost 200.

The jobs will be created by payments firm OmniPay at its headquarters in Clonskeagh over the coming six months.

The new roles are being created as a result of further investment in the company’s payments processing platform.

The 13-year-old company caters to 31 merchant banks and payment processors worldwide, handling over a billion transactions, predominantly in Europe, Asia and North America, though it hopes to develop further in Africa, India and Latin America.

The positions will include vacancies for project managers, business analysts, systems developers and quality assurance specialists.

Jobs minister Richard Bruton said the jobs were the latest in a series “of positive financial services announcements in recent months” and welcomed the news.

OmniPay co-founder and chief executive Hubert O’Donoghue said the development was good news not only for his own company, but for the “burgeoning payments industry in Ireland”.

“It’s exciting that we are adding more high quality roles into our business and the local industry,” he said, adding that each new recruit would be joining a firm “perfectly positioned for sustained international growth.”

IDA Ireland chief executive Barry O’Leary said Ireland was “rapidly becoming one of the world’s leading locations for companies in the payment’s industry”.

“Companies in the payments industry locate here to gain access to our technological infrastructure as well as our talented graduates,” he said.
