The job announcements continue to flow in this morning following the news that the online payments company Realex is to create 50 new jobs in its Dublin office.

Realex has been growing in size since its acquisition last March by the firm Global Payments in a deal that cost the US-based company €115m.

Now, according to the The Irish Times, the company is to facilitate further expansion both in terms of new employees as well as expanding its technical graduate programme.

It is understood that the new jobs at Realex will be in the roles of sales, marketing, IT operations and software development and it will use these new roles to expand its operations in both the UK and Ireland.

Founded in 2000, the payments company has manged to attract some major clients in the world of e-commerce, having last June signed a three-year deal with the insurance provider Aviva in the UK.

With other names on its books including the betting giant Paddy Power as well as Virgin Atlantic and Aer Lingus, Realex says it processes as much as €28bn per annum among a total of 12,500 clients.

Speaking of the announcement, Realex’s managing director Gary Conroy, who recently took part in Siliconrepublic.com’s Leaders’ Insights series, said: “Ireland is fast becoming a hub for fintech, with a wealth of talent available within the industry. We’ve always been proud of the Irish heritage of the company and its success as a tech start-up. It’s important to us that we maintain these roots while continuing to grow our global operations.

“The expansion of our operations and our technology investment in Dublin will allow us to provide the highest standard of e-commerce innovation and service to our customer base.”
