The credit-monitoring giant also has a separate facility in Wexford where it employs 100 people. This facitliy was it set up over 20 years ago.
Equifax provides information that enables consumers, businesses and governments to compile and monitor credit scores.

Equifax expects to fill the new vacancies over the next 12 months. The new jobs announced today will mostly be filled by software engineers, business analysts, and other IT specialists.

Martin Shanahan, IDA Ireland's chief executive, said that Equifax has greatly bolstered Dublin's reputation as a tech hub within Europe by choosing to double its Irish workforce just a year after opening its Dublin IT facility.
"This expansion also demonstrates that Ireland has both the necessary business infrastructure and talent pool to continue to attract global services companies here," Mr Shanahan added.
