CALIFORNIA – A Silicon Valley based hi-tech company that specialises in protecting businesses from online fraud is to develop a new research and development (R&D) centre in the North which is expected to create 150 jobs.

San Jose, California, headquartered Signifyd, which was founded by former PayPal and FedEx employees, said the company’s first investment in Northern Ireland will help expand its European operations.

According to Raj Ramanand, co-founder and chief executive of the U.S Company, it had explored a number of potential investment locations before deciding on Belfast.

“As we studied different locations to expand our engineering footprint, Belfast stood out for its talent pool and its proximity to better service our European customers. We are based right here in Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter and look forward to building a world-class team to lead our innovation and help our customers provide the kind of shopping experiences today’s consumers expect,” Mr Ramanand added.
