Fiserv, a Fortune 500 fintech company based in Brookfield, Wisconsin, intends to open a major office in Berkeley Heights, bringing up to 3,000 high-paying, high-tech jobs to the state, ROI-NJ has learned.
The company has applied for an Emerge award from the New Jersey Economic Development Authority. The potential award was on the agenda the EDA released Monday for its meeting Sept. 22. The size of the award could not be confirmed.
Fiserv already has a number of smaller offices in the state, including a location in Jersey City.
Attracting a billion-dollar brand such as Fiserv would be a second huge win for the state — and Gov. Phil Murphy’s desire to rebuild the state’s innovation economy — in the past week. Last week, the EDA announced that HAX, a global accelerator, is going to establish a headquarters in Newark with a commitment to develop 100 hard-tech companies in the next five years.
