MasterCard Worldwide has announced a new global office for the company’s technology operations, to be headquartered in Dublin, Ireland. The expansion, supported by IDA Ireland, will create an additional 130 highly skilled jobs during the next four years, bringing the total number of people employed in Ireland to approximately 200.

“We are pleased to make this investment in Ireland, which builds on our existing presence. The caliber of highly qualified, talented people and the Government’s commitment to science, technology and innovation, gave us confidence that this was the ideal setting for our new Global Technologies office” said Rob Reeg, president, MasterCard Technologies.

“At our core, MasterCard is a technology company that happens to be in the payments space…Our focus as a company is on offering innovative, game-changing technologies that offer mass appeal for our global customers and cardholders.

The Dublin team will work collaboratively with other MasterCard office locations, particularly the MasterCard Technologies headquarters office in St. Louis, Missouri.

Having a presence in Ireland is not new for MasterCard – the company has had an office in the city since it acquired technology company Orbiscom in 2008. However, this expansion means an increase in both staff, as well as the areas of focus for Dublin technology team members, including:

- MasterCard Labs - Dublin is already one of the four key locations for MasterCard Labs, the company’s research and development function tasked with fast-tracking innovative products and services to bring them to market quickly. MasterCard Labs is headed up globally by Garry Lyons, the former CEO of Orbiscom and MasterCard’s Chief Innovation Officer, who is based in the Dublin office.

-Center of Excellence for Java Development. The Dublin office has been designated as MasterCard’s Center of Excellence for Java Development, one of the predominant programming languages for ecommerce, mobile and other emerging payment technologies.

-inControl. MasterCard’s inControl platform team will be based in the Dublin office. MasterCard inControl is a key product that MasterCard offers to help customers and cardholders set custom controls on usage of their credit, debit and prepaid cards, offering improved insights on how and where their cards are used.
 
MasterCard is currently recruiting for technology roles for the Dublin office via the company’s web site.
