Equiniti launches digital experience centre to transform app development


Equiniti, an international technology-led services and payments specialist, is delighted to announce that it has opened EQ Tek, a new R&D facility for its client-facing applications.

Headquartered in Krakow, Poland, EQ Tek will create an additional 150 roles for high-calibre developers as well as systems and UX experts within Equiniti. The team will be developing best-in-class applications and product delivery systems across all divisions of the business.

This focused operation is expected to transform the services Equiniti is able to offer its entire client-base, delivering a sophisticated suite of applications and a market-leading digital experience for end customers.

Opening the office in Krakow unlocks a huge pool of talent in one of the world’s most exciting cities for tech innovation. The state-of-the-art facility is located in a newly built tech hub that is already home to a number of multi-national organisations, including Salesforce, Cisco and IBM.

The new app-focused facility, adds to Equiniti’s growing technology estate. Since 2016 the Group has opened a Fintech Innovation Centre in Cardiff, a Northern Tech Hub in Leeds and a data science lab in Exeter. In February this year, a new Digital Hub in Bangalore also went operational to underpin its North American business.

The office will be officially opened today by James Hughes, Minister-Counsellor for Economic Affairs (British Embassy), Ms Katarzyna Wysocka, Director of the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Department (Krakow), Guy Wakeley, (Group Chief Executive Officer at Equiniti) and Kevin O’Connor (Group Chief Information Officer at Equiniti).

Guy Wakeley, commented: “Technology underpins everything that we do at Equiniti, so by investing in a dedicated centre to develop these applications that are so essential, we expect to start delivering a truly differentiated service across our international client base.”

Kevin O’Connor, who is leading on the delivery of the new office, commented: “We are delighted that EQ Tek is up and running, and we have made a strong start on developing the top-quality applications that will be of invaluable use for our international clients across our broad suite of services.

“Krakow is a globally renowned hub of tech talent and it is already clear that we have recruited an incredibly high-level team that will push our products on to the next level.”

James Hughes commented: “We are delighted to support the investment of another UK Fintech company in Poland. Equiniti is a profitable, growing business with a fantastic reputation in the tech sector and their commitment to looking after their team is great to see. I am sure they will be impressed by the sheer scale of tech talent in Krakow and I look forward to following their progress over the coming years.”
