Cayan announces 50 jobs for Belfast with new sci-fi HQ

20 Jan 2016

Smart payments company Cayan has announced it’s to create 50 jobs for Belfast with the opening of its new headquarters in the city as part of a £3m investment by the US-based company.

Originating from Boston in the US, Cayan has been in Northern Ireland since 2013, where it currently employs 134 staff, but it will now add a further 50 employees with the opening of its sci-fi themed headquarters in the city’s City Quays 1 development.

The new positions will be split between its customer support and software engineering divisions with aims of expanding its current product, Genius, a point of sale payment platform developed in Belfast.

The company says that its Genius product has grown on a quarterly basis by 35pc since it was launched three years ago, and these new positions will cater to the increasing demand.

Cayan has also said that it plans to reveal further job opportunities this summer.

“Cayan’s entire approach is different as we hire based on attitude and approach, and then train and support our people to help them progress and excel,” said Cayan’s HR Manager, Bronagh Major.

“We regard our customer support team as the voice of Cayan, providing the guidance and advice our customers need and appreciate. It’s less about qualifications and more about approach and engagement – so anyone who has worked in a busy retail or service-based environment, such as a coffee shop, bar or restaurant, could have the initiative and skills which would make them excel at Cayan.”
