Global life assurance company MetLife is opening a global technology campus in Galway, leading to the creation of 200 jobs. The campus is expected to open in the first half of 2017, and recruitment will begin immediately.

“The digital initiatives we will drive from the Galway campus are at the heart of our commitment to earning the right to be the customer’s first choice. Bringing together a wide array of technologists in a single hub will not only increase our operating leverage, but also accelerate our culture of collaboration,” said Marty Lippert, executive vice president and head of MetLife’s global technology & operations organisation.”

Also welcoming the announcement Martin Shanahan, CEO, IDA Ireland, said:  ”Ireland is uniquely positioned to become a leading global centre for Fintech investment, where global multinationals like MetLife can develop and implement their digital capabilities to their customers worldwide. The scale of this investment in a regional location demonstrates the confidence a global leader such as MetLife has in Ireland’s technology talent and business infrastructure. I wish all the MetLife team every success and offer the continued support of IDA Ireland.”

MetLife has operations in 50 countries, serving 100 million customers. It opened its Dublin office in 2006, where it employs 300.
