Bank of Ireland will hire 100 people for technical positions that will allow them to work remotely.

Technical architects, software developers, engineers, specialised project managers, scrum masters, and data analysts are among the positions that the bank is trying to fill. As the bank attempts to expand its digital banking offerings, new hires will be added to the business’s existing tech teams.

The new staff will be able to work from anywhere on the island of Ireland under Bank of Ireland’s flexible working policy. They can work from home, the bank’s headquarters office, or one of 11 remote working hubs.

Swords, Blanchardstown, Santry, Newlands Cross, Gorey, Mullingar, Newbridge, Dundalk, Northern Cross, Balbriggan, and Naas are among the cities with hubs.

Bank of Ireland’s tech hiring spree is part of the bank’s continuous digital transformation strategy, which aims to improve digital services for clients across personal, business, and corporate banking, as well as wealth and insurance.

The new positions are in addition to the 130 equivalent tech positions it hired for last year. The recruitment of the new technology jobs, according to Eimear Harty, HR director at the bank’s group technology and customer solutions division, will be “critical” in terms of how the bank serves its customers and expands its company in the future.

“We have many colleagues with deep technology expertise and these new positions will add to this. We are ambitious for the development of our digital services, and we offer a very progressive approach to flexible working.”Eimear Harty, HR Director, Bank of Ireland

Minister of State for Financial Services, Credit Unions and Insurance Seán Fleming, TD, said the jobs announcement was a sign that “the digital finance ecosystem in Ireland continues to grow”.

At the beginning of this year, Bank of Ireland had also opened many remote working hubs for its staff.
