At Segmatic we believe in rewarding competence, performance and dependability. We review everyone’s salary every six months.

You’ll join colleagues in our Dublin city centre office who come from a range of backgrounds and perspectives — from IT and engineering to marketing, psychology and history. We think outside the box, challenge each other, and together we achieve great things.

Segmatic delivers results, plain and simple. In fact, we are so committed to this philosophy that we bill our clients based on performance. This is popular with our growing client base, which includes T.M. Lewin, Betfair, Volusion, and Photobox.
