30 fintech jobs in Dublin as Numerix joins the fold

15 Jul 2015

Financial analytics company Numerix is opening a new Dublin office, seeking to fill 30 new positions, including roles in financial engineering and analytics.

With a base of operations in Ireland, Numerix will seek to build a significant presence in the country, with both the Department of Jobs and the IDA supporting the announcement.

“We’re seeking a labour force comprised of high-level professionals in the area of financial engineering, financial analytic development, quality assurance, quantitative first and second tier support, as well as personnel with backgrounds in legal and accounting domain knowledge,” said Steven O’Hanlon, CEO and president of the company.

“Numerix is drawn to the qualified pool of employees in Ireland that will help the firm to meet its staffing needs and business objectives, specifically for research and development initiatives.

“In addition we will seek to expand our professional service group in Ireland, which will be leveraged throughout the entire EMEA region to further support client needs and requests.”

Numerix was set up 20 years ago and now claims to be “the leading provider” of computational analytics software for the derivatives market.

Headquartered in New York, Numerix works with more than 700 clients and 75 partners across more than 26 countries.

It’s just the latest in a long line of positive jobs announcements in the financial services industry in Ireland this year, with IDA Ireland CEO Martin Shanahan noting the sector as a whole “continues to grow rapidly”.

“Companies like Numerix that specialise in risk management and financial technology have been specifically targeted by IDA Ireland as part of our growth strategy in this area,” he said.
