Mastercard to create 1500 jobs with new European Technology Hub in Dublin

  • Mastercard plans to create 1500 jobs in the next three to five years as it significantly grows its new European Technology Hub in Dublin.

    The payments technology giant is to grow its workforce with notable investments in its artificial intelligence, cyber security, blockchain, user experience teams, and more.

    As such, Mastercard will be recruiting for talented technologists with strong development and software skills looking to work on impactful, cutting edge technology projects.
    The company opened its Irish operations in 2008 with 36 staff and since then has grown to over 650 people.

    In line with its expansion plans, Mastercard will be taking on additional office space at One and Two South County, a newly built campus site in Leopardstown, South Dublin, not far from Mastercard’s current home.
    The new campus-style workplace will provide state-of-the-art facilities with positive environmental design principles focused on neuro-diversity, wellbeing and collaboration at its core.

    Highlights include a rooftop terrace, café, luxurious changing rooms, car parking and wellbeing classes.
    "Our Dublin Tech Hub is an innovation engine for our company across Europe and beyond, and we’re delighted to be expanding our technology footprint in the city," said Ed McLaughlin, President of Mastercard Operations and Technology. 

    "Our new campus will help us continue to attract the best and brightest tech talent, so that we stay on the forefront of emerging tech trends and are well positioned to forge the future of digital commerce across the globe."
    Ken Moore, Executive Vice President of Product and Innovation, and Head of Mastercard Labs added: “We’re thrilled to be growing our business in Dublin. It’s the home of our technology hub in Europe and global headquarters for Mastercard Labs.

    "With the partnership of the IDA we look forward to welcoming new people with unique ideas to our already strong workforce, ensuring we continue to provide cutting edge payment technology solutions for our customers and consumers globally. We’re confident our new workplace will provide a collaborative environment to do this and we look forward to moving into our new home.”
