7 top employers seeking fintech candidates right now

22 Apr 2016

Ireland is becoming a powerful fintech hub as the fintech sector grows massively in Ireland. Along with that growth, as always, come jobs.

Earlier this week, we heard from Jasaon Kelly at Hays Ireland, who wrote about challenges in fintech recruitment, and the types of candidates that businesses in the sector are seeking.

Kelly’s article made one thing very clear: fintech companies are crying out for skilled employees to work at the cutting edge of disruptive technology development, working on everything from cryptocurrency to platforms.

Organisations are looking for adaptable candidates, for those who can keep up with the constantly changing face of the sector and its technologies.

Fintech recruitment is incredibly competitive right now – a natural by-product of an industry with more jobs than skilled workers. Whittling down the many opportunities to a select few can be challenging.

These seven top employers may just be a good place to start.


Accenture is a management consulting, technology services and outsourcing company offering clients a diverse range of services.

The global firm, which has offices in Dublin, is currently hiring for roles in data analysis, software and .Net development, business analysis and business intelligence consultancy, among many others.

Aon Centre for Innovation and Analytics

Aon’s purview is wide reaching, with insurance playing a big part in the company’s portfolio. At the Aon Centre for Innovation and Analytics (ACIA), based in Dublin, the team works on industry-level innovation in that area – and others – which does touch on the fintech sphere.

ACIA is currently hiring data analysts, insights analysts, and developers.

Since the recording of the above video, ACIA has appointed a new CEO, Todd Curry.
