TD's technology team in Dublin is growing and planned to be a technology centre of excellence in Europe, providing a range of technology services to the local, regional and global TD businesses. Technology services provided from Dublin include infrastructure service delivery, cloud engineering, application support and application development for regulatory technology and critical business applications using advanced technologies and toolsets .
