Limerick city centre is set for a jobs boost with news that Transact Campus has chosen the location for its new international headquarters. The US company, which develops payment and credential software for campus environments, said it will create 110 jobs to develop its portfolio of products and services.

The roles will include product managers, architects, scrum masters, UX designers, front-end developers, back-end developers, iOS and Android developers, DevOps engineers, software engineers and data scientists.
