US financial services giant Fidelity Investments has outlined plans to add 100 new technology jobs at its sites in Galway and Dublin, Ireland.

The jobs are part of a EUR11 million investment commitment over three years from the firm, which set up in Ireland in 1996 and already employs around 240 tech staff in the country.

The new positions will be part of Fidelity Technology Group, which is responsible for the company's tech research, services and operations. The employees will work on software development such as Java and .NET, performance and test engineering, database development and management, systems analysis and QA.

Julia Davenport, SVP, Fidelity Investments, says: "By expanding here, Fidelity is making a strategic, long‐term decision to invest in a region with a well-educated, highly skilled workforce from which we can draw the quality talent needed to provide services across the firm."

Barry O'Leary, CEO, IDA Ireland - which is backing the move - adds: "Fidelity's investment shows our capacity to provide an increasingly competitive, business‐friendly environment in which technology companies can grow and develop."
