A global customer credit agency has vowed to create 100 jobs with the opening of new offices in Dublin.
Equifax said its IT talent centre, on Sir John Rogerson’s Quay, will develop new solutions for its business around the world.
Recruitment for the “highly skilled research and development” roles is already under way.
Paul O’Dwyer, who heads the new office, said Equifax was taking a “big bet” on locating in the Irish capital.
“We have made a big bet on Dublin as we recognise the technology talent pool is strong and the market can support Equifax’s increasing demand for bold, innovative thinking,” he said.
Founded in 1889, Equifax gathers information on more than 600 million consumers worldwide.
With its headquarters in Atlanta, in the US, it already has offices in Wexford, which employs 90 people.
