Equifax has opened a new IT talent centre on Sir John Rogerson’s Quay in Dublin. The company is seeking 100 research and development staff, with hiring already under way.
“We have made a big bet on Dublin as we recognise the technology talent pool is strong and the market can support Equifax’s increasing demand for bold, innovative thinking,” said Paul O’Dwyer leader of the Dublin centre. “Talent that is interested in working with a globally recognised leader in consumer, commercial and workforce information solutions that anticipates customers’ needs by delivering unparalleled customised insights through innovative data solutions is encouraged to apply.”
Founded in 1889, Equifax gathers and maintains information on over 600 million consumers worldwide and over the years has evolved its business model from a traditional consumer credit focus to a company that uses unique trusted data, technology and innovative analytics to help its customers make informed decisions.
“Equifax is a workplace of strong values and one in which we realise our success as a company is ultimately built upon the achievements of our people,” said Coretha Rushing, chief human resource officer. “We are an inclusive culture, one that offers work-life balance and embraces the innovative spirit.”
The opening of the Dublin centre further expands Equifax’s global footprint which provides information solutions in 19 countries on four continents. The company already has a presence in Wexford that houses its database management, customer and consumer activities in relation to its consumer credit referencing services for UK-based clients. This location opened in 1994 and employs approximately 90 full-time employees.
