An Tanaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Leo Varadkar, met with Money Jar executives, John Harkin, and Johan Reveillard, today to announce 100 new jobs at the Irish fintech.
The new jobs will drive the expansion of Money Jar in Ireland and across Europe. The highly skilled roles in software engineering, compliance and security, product management and design, marketing, sales, account management and customer support, will enable Money Jar to scale its platform and footprint internationally
Money Jar is the first Irish digital current account to offer a cash lodgement service through Payzone, along with an Irish IBAN, a seamless sign-up process, and pay-as-you-go. Money Jar, partnering with Payzone, Ireland’s largest consumer payments network, is now making lodging cash to a digital current account easy, at over 3,000 locations across Ireland – twice the number of locations than a traditional bank.
Money Jar customers will be able to deposit up to €300 per day into their Money Jar digital current account. This new feature furthers Money Jar’s commitment to developing services with customer needs in mind, helping to make their financial lives as hassle free as possible. The fintech claims to have the best of what traditional banks have to offer, but with the convenience that all things digital can deliver.
Speaking about the launch of this new service, Money Jar Executive Chairman, John Harkin said, "Cash is still an important element in our economy; recognising this, we’ve partnered with Payzone to give our customers a quick and convenient way to deposit cash into their Money Jar accounts. This further enhances Money Jar’s offer and gives our customers access to the largest cash lodgement service in the country."
He added, "Digital current accounts are the future for efficient money management but allowing cash lodgement is the most convenient way to cut out the middleman. This new partnership with Payzone is in line with our mission of making digital banking in Ireland easy, accessible, and secure."
