8 finance companies hiring for software talent right now

11 Feb 2020

On the lookout for a software-related job in the financial services sector? These companies are all currently hiring.

The financial services sector has undeniably undergone a tech revolution in the past number of years, from new ways of banking to e-commerce, fintech and security.

In light of that, we’ve taken a look at some of the finance companies in Ireland that are currently on the lookout for new software talent, from developers to engineers and more.


Global banking firm Citi works on an array of financial services, from safeguarding assets and loads to making payments. At its Innovation Lab at North Wall Quay in Dublin, the team brings together diverse skillsets to “make innovation happen”, emerging technology development lead Prag Sharma told us. The company is seeking new hires across a range of tech disciplines to help with that goal.

Deutsche Bank

Deutsche Bank was founded in Berlin in 1870, and today it employs nearly 100,000 people in more than 70 countries. The company has had a presence in Dublin since 1991, and its Global Transaction Banking team in Dublin 3 now employs around 650 people. The German financial services firm is still adding to that workforce, with opportunities available for all career levels.


Mastercard has been in operation for more than 50 years, during which time it has been working to making payments safe and simple. With employee benefits such as paternity leave, initiatives to encourage work-life balance and support for career goals, the global electronic payments firm is one to check out.


One of the rising names in fintech is Stripe, which was founded a decade ago by Irish brothers John and Patrick Collison. The San Francisco-based company builds the tools and infrastructure to create a global payments and treasury network, and is seeking people in Dublin to help it achieve its mission. Tech professionals who are “obsessively user-focused” could find a great new home in Stripe, according to the company.

Fidelity Investments

Fidelity Investments is focused on “blazing its own trail”, having started out as a small mutual fund company before growing to be one of the largest financial services firms in the world. With a commitment to career progression – as senior manager John Farrelly told us – it could be wise to keep Fidelity in mind for your next career move.

JP Morgan

JP Morgan has been working across Europe for almost 200 years, and is now one of the largest providers of custody and fund services in Ireland. The company has plenty of opportunities for students, graduates and experienced professionals after opening a new office in Dublin last year – keep an eye on the company’s careers page for open positions.

Liberty IT

Liberty IT has been a steadfast member of the Belfast sci-tech scene for more than 20 years, and is a certified Great Place to Work. The company describes itself as “a bunch of inventors, problem solvers, business brains and tech transformers” and, according to its senior director of talent, Cathy Donnelly, benefits that go above and beyond salary are important to its team.

Future Finance

The youngest company on this list, Future Finance, began in 2014 as a start-up specialising in student loans. The company is based in Dublin and has been ranked in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Awards and the KPMG/H2 Fintech 100. Future Finance is hiring across a range of roles, so if the start-up life is something you’re after, take a peek at its jobs page.
