Merchant Lynx Services, a credit card processing company, plans to add 120 jobs to its Palm Beach Gardens corporate headquarters by 2021.

The company, located at a 20,000-square-foot facility at 348 Hiatt Drive, currently has 68 employees. Merchant Lynx Services will focus on hiring military veterans and recent university graduates, according to the Business Development Board of Palm Beach County.

AJ Cross, COO of Merchant Lynx Services, said the company intends to celebrate "diversity, inclusion and opportunity" through its hiring methods.

"We must seek out of the box methods to create opportunity where there may be none for our military veterans as well as those who are placed into boxes by predictive recruitment algorithms, " he said.

Merchant Lynx serves 1,500 local merchants, including life sciences, pharmaceutical and e-commerce companies.

The BDB reports it connected the company with CareerSource Palm Beach County's veteran program and Palm Beach Atlantic University.

"The company represents multiple driving industries in the county, including financial services and information technology, and plans on forming even more partnerships with local colleges and universities," said BDB President and CEO Kelly Smallridge.

In addition to its Palm Beach Gardens headquarters, Merchant Lynx has offices in Annapolis, Maryland; Rye, New York; Alpharetta, Georgia; Bensalem, Pennsylvania; Woburn, Massachusetts and Orlando.
