IT services provider Infosys will create 250 new jobs over the next three years in Ireland to develop new technologies and support innovation in global financial institutions.
This project has been supported by the Department of Jobs through IDA Ireland.
The Bangalore-headquartered Infosys will create up to 95 roles at its first dedicated product-centric research and development (R&D) center outside India, and open a second Irish facility to house up to 155 people who will provide IT services to Infosys clients.
The roles at the R&D facility, which will be established by EdgeVerve Systems, the product subsidiary of Infosys, will focus on Financial Technology research and development. The center will operate an open innovation model and focus on technology aras such as blockchain and analytics.
Employees at the company’s new development center will provide services to its global and Ireland-based clients in the financial services industry. The work will include high-end IT consulting, business analytics, business processing and customer service.
Infosys already has more than 250 employees in Ireland including those transferred from AIB to the Infosys Booters town facility in July 2015, and onsite employees at client locations in Ireland.
“Infosys has based its growth on a foundation of education, lifelong learning and a deep commitment to innovation. Infosys is working with clients in Ireland helping them explore new ways of working and advancing, by embracing technology-led innovation,” said Vishal Sikka, chief executive officer and managing director of Infosys.
