Tech firm's £3m investment creates 50 jobs in Belfast

A US technology firm is creating 50 jobs as part of a £3 million investment.

Cayan, which provides payment processing platforms, is recruiting customer support staff and software engineers with staring salaries of £18,000 and £30,000 respectively.

The posts will be based at the company's new sci-fi-themed headquarters in Belfast, which includes an Xbox room complete with gaming chairs and wi-fi stations.

Cayan launched in Northern Ireland in 2013 and currently employs 134 full-time staff.

Most of its clients are based in America and include leading brands such as Puma, Harley-Davidson and Party City .

Bronagh Major, human resources manager, said: "Cayan's entire approach is different as we hire based on attitude and approach, and then train and support our people to help them progress and excel.

"We regard our customer support team as the voice of Cayan, providing the guidance and advice our customers need and appreciate.

"It's less about qualifications and more about approach and engagement - so anyone who has worked in a busy retail or service-based environment, such as a coffee shop, bar or restaurant, could have the initiative and skills which would make them excel at Cayan."
