Belfast Office to Focus on Evolution of Genius
Boston, MA -- April 30, 2013 -- Merchant Warehouse®, a leading innovator of payment technologies and merchant account services, today announced the opening of its first international office in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The office, referred to as Merchant Warehouse NI (Northern Ireland), will focus primarily on the technology and software development of the Genius™ Customer Engagement Platform™.
The Belfast office, established with the help of Invest Northern Ireland (Invest NI), will focus on software development, integration technologies and APIs to accelerate the extension of Genius with a rapidly growing partner base. To accomplish this goal, Merchant Warehouse will hire 70 employees to fill various development and support roles over the next three years.
“We’ve been considering an international location for some time so we’re thrilled with our decision to open an office in Belfast,” said Henry Helgeson, CEO, Merchant Warehouse. “Invest NI’s support was a crucial component in our decision to select Belfast as our new technology division location. Our new Belfast office will help us continue to drive product innovation on the Genius platform with some of the best developer talent Europe has to offer.”
“The mobile payments revolution is not something that will happen in five years; it’s happening now and we want to help merchants be fully prepared for it,” said Paul Vienneau, CTO, Merchant Warehouse. “Opening a second office in Belfast to focus on software development allows us to bring a new group of highly skilled software engineers in-house to assist with the evolution of Genius.”
