Irish fintech company, Global Shares last week celebrated the Grand Opening of its new Lisbon IT Hub and Service Delivery Centre, creating over 30 new high-tech jobs.
Lisbon is one of 11 Global Shares’ offices around the world and has been designated as a strategic operations base in terms of new product development and centralised Service Delivery. The Lisbon team is split between its pioneering IT development team, and its highly experienced support team of Service Analysts.
Ireland's Ambassador to Portugal - her Excellency Orla Tunney – cut the ribbon at the company’s brand new office for over 50 staff in Lisbon city centre, kick starting a recruitment drive to fill a range of new high skilled jobs including C#.NET Software Engineers, Mobile App Developer, Front End Angular Developer, QA Engineer, multi-lingual Service Desk Analysts and more.
Speaking last week, Global Shares Chief Operating Officer, Mark Purcell said, "Our decision to invest in Lisbon is a direct response to the incredible commitment given to Global Shares by the team here, and the warm rapport that exists between our cultures. Lisbon is a major hub with an extensive pool of resources in terms of language skills and access to highly talented staff. As our company scales further we look forward to see our new strategic Lisbon hub go from strength to strength."
