Fintech company to create hundreds of engineering jobs in Dublin

  • Stripe, the online payment company, has said it will create hundreds of highly skilled engineering jobs in Dublin over the next three years.

    This expansion comes in addition to at least 1,000 jobs already announced by Stripe in March this year. That recruitment drive is expected to take up to five years and includes roles across a broad range of teams.

    Speaking about the expansion, Stripe's EMEA business lead, Matt Henderson said: “Ireland has emerged as a global leader in software development, and Stripe’s Dublin engineering hub has been enormously successful in building new product features.”

    Mr. Henderson also added: “It makes perfect sense for us to double-down on Ireland as we grow our engineering presence in Europe.”

    Stripe, founded by Irish brothers Patrick and John Collison in 2010, is dual-headquartered in San Francisco and Dublin. It currently has more than 4,000 employees, including around 400 currently in Dublin.

    Its platform to power online payments first launched in the US in 2011, arriving in Ireland in 2013. Two years later, Stripe opened its Dublin office.

    Dublin later became the site of Stripe’s first engineering hub outside the US and now serves as the company’s international headquarters.

    IDA CEO Martin Shanahan. “The opportunity to pioneer new approaches to global money movement right here in Ireland will have a lasting and positive impact at home and abroad.”

    Mr. Shanahan also added that the growth of Stripe’s Dublin engineering hub will further Ireland’s reputation as “a recognised global software leader”.
