We Recruit Exceptional People
We are defining the next generation of banking in Canada, challenging the brick-and-mortar status quo. We are looking for well-rounded, passionate, and analytical students to join our high performing culture that’s focused on the customer-centric design and data-driven problem-solving.
We foster an environment to kick-start careers. Our office is designed to foster collaboration and innovation. A quick walk around this place will reveal a lot of whiteboards and enough Post-It Notes to be meaningful to 3M’s bottom line. We’re also passionate about our associates having fun here, which is why we have heavily-used games rooms with foosball, ping pong, video games, and more. And since it’s uncomfortable to do any of those things in a suit and tie, those aren’t required either. We have a business casual dress code because we believe our associates will do their best work when they’re feeling like themselves.
