JRI America are located in the Kerry Technology Park, but also have offices in London, Shanghai, Tokyo, Singapore and New York.

They are a company that provides IT services for Japan’s second largest bank SMBC and the Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group.

Since the Tralee office was established in 2011 JRI America has grown rapidly, attracting both talented experienced staff as well as taking on graduates to train and develop.
