Irish payments technology start-up, CleverCards, today kicked-off a hiring campaign to create 30 new jobs, across UK and Europe, over the next six months.

The announcement comes as a result of unprecedented growth, accelerated by the pandemic and the significant societal shift to contactless payments.

The recruitment drive, which is being managed by tech recruitment specialists Martinsen Mayer, will see the young Fintech almost triple in size, as it fills roles across sales & marketing, product development and engineering.

Kealan Lennon, Founder and CEO at CleverCards, comments, “Originally we had planned to add a further 50 people to our team in 2021, but demand for our payment technology is thriving and COVID-19 has expedited our plans. In Q4 we’ll process 10 times as many payments as we did in Q1. It’s an exciting time to work in Fintech and, for those at CleverCards, an opportunity to reimagine the way we make financial transactions.”

Just as Spotify and Netflix transformed the way we consume music and movies, CleverCards is revolutionising the payments industry, removing the need for payments instruments, such as debit cards, vouchers, cheques and slow bank transfers, through its dedicated digital platform for payments.

As a global payments platform, CleverCards enables businesses to pay anyone, anywhere, anytime, instantly by simply sending a digital Mastercard via email or WhatsApp straight to the Apple, Samsung, Google Pay wallet in the phone of the recipient - making it easy for recipients to spend online or in-store contactlessly.

“Despite the economic and societal strain of Lockdown, the technology market remains highly competitive, across Ireland and Europe. Our partnership with CleverCards will allow us to execute a strategic hiring vision that will deliver the best talent available,” states Rob Shannon, Managing Director at Martinsen Mayer.

Earlier this year CleverCards announced partnerships with Mastercard and EML Payments Plc, spring-boarding the brand’s global reach and offering organisations around the world a first-of-its-kind, secure, rapidly deployable solution to payments challenges such as paying vendors, workers or customers anywhere, anytime, instantly.

Lennon adds, “The use cases for our payments platform are broad. We are expanding our sales and marketing team to bring more support to new and existing customers, while our investment in product development and engineering will allow us to continue innovating and configuring our platform to meet the unique payments needs of the market going forward.”
