By John Mulgrew

A US tech firm is creating 170 new jobs at its Belfast office.

Cayan, which was formerly called Merchant Warehouse, is based at the City Quays 1 building.

The firm is growing its team here to 240 workers, and hiring an additional 170 staff.

It's adding the customer services roles, which includes client services representatives, team leaders and case managers.

Paul Vienneau, chief technology officer of Cayan, said: “Our Northern Ireland operation is incredibly significant to our overall business strategy with our Belfast development team consistently delivering product engineering excellence."

Invest NI has offered Cayan £680,000 towards the creation of the new posts, of which around 100 are in place already.

Invest NI’s executive director of business and sector development, Jeremy Fitch, said: “Since opening its Northern Ireland office in 2013, Cayan has grown into an exemplary software development operation, producing industry leading payment processing products.

“Cayan’s decision to locate its primary customer services function in Belfast represents a major reinvestment for the company and demonstrates its confidence in Northern Ireland."
