As part of its new technology jobs initiative, LPL Financial, a wholly owned subsidiary of LPL Financial Holdings Inc., created of 50 new technology-related positions based out of the company's Charlotte, N.C., corporate offices. The company plans to fill the majority of these positions by October this year and add up to a total of 100 new technology positions through 2013.

The new Charlotte-based positions available will include developers and project managers, as well as other IT roles. In addition to Charlotte, LPL Financial has corporate offices in Boston and San Diego. LPL Financial plans to augment the Charlotte office's existing technology staff, bringing it closer in size to its already-existing IT hub in San Diego. The two locations will complement each other, providing redundancy and an extended working day that will enable the company to continue to enhance its technology infrastructure, program and application development and production services to financial advisors across the nation, according to LPL Financial.

"This announcement underscores our commitment to continuously reinvest in the technology resources that are central to the support we provide to thousands of financial advisors across the nation,” said Chris Feeney, managing director and CIO at LPL Financial. “At the same time, this is part of a larger ongoing company initiative to ensure continuity for mission critical business functions by having robust technology capabilities on both coasts, thereby ensuring the seamless delivery of service to our financial advisors."

Those parties interested in finding out more about the new technology job opportunities should consult the careers section of the company’s website.
