Fintech and software companies announced new job opportunities this week, LinkedIn rolled out feature updates and Hays told us how to build a strong employer brand.
If you’re looking for a new job, the first full week of April brought some positive news, particularly in fintech.
Fenergo revealed its plans to hire for 100 new roles in Dublin by the end of the year. On the back of surging demand for its cloud-based solutions, it will be recruiting across finance, regulation, customer success, sales, HR, engineering and professional services.
The company said the openings would include five graduate technology roles and 10 vacancies in cloud security and SaaS engineering.
Another fintech headquartered in Dublin, CurrencyFair, is set to create hundreds of new positions. The company is merging with Australia’s Assembly Payments, which will bring its headcount from 90 to 160 immediately and this is expected to further grow to 450 over the next four years.
CurrencyFair will be hiring across the board with opportunities slated to open up in sales and marketing, engineering, product and more.
Meanwhile, Waterford-based software company StitcherAds is also expanding its team. It will recruit 30 new engineers in Ireland and fill 10 new roles in account management and customer support between its Irish and US offices.
