Title:  Learn More About Our Digital Innovation Team!




Requisition ID: 66007


At Scotiabank Digital Factory, the reach and opportunity of a global organization meets the passion and drive of a startup. Reinvention starts here—and it starts with you.

We believe that the pathway to success is paved with user feedback, so we’re constantly asking our customers how they want to bank. When we find an opportunity to make things people will love, we assemble teams of specialists to collaborate in Digital Factories in Canada, Chile, Mexico, Peru, and Colombia. We work fast, and we work smart. Join us to create meaningful experiences and build the bank of tomorrow for our customers around the world.

If you’d like to learn more about the Digital Factory workspace, our Digital Banking career opportunities, Communities of Practice, and open source projects, check out our microsite:



“This is for ongoing opportunities and not for an active or specific position. As such, you may not hear back from us immediately. In addition, this is a general overview of the Innovation Community of Practice; therefore actual roles, in reality, will vary in their seniority and specific skill sets needed.”


What does Innovation at Scotia really mean?  

If you’re picturing Elon Musk on the verge of an epiphany, yelling “we need to create a sustainable energy resource!” then you’re…. well, actually, you’re not that far off, we’re all a little mad here. We're working on some really cool initiatives on the Innovation team. We're establishing Scotiabank’s presence in the global entrepreneurial ecosystem while optimizing value from our partnerships. Our goal is to become the catalyst of innovation and position our bank as a leader in both the Financial Services industry and in our customers’ day to day lives by accelerating technology, business, and talent capabilities. 

Who would I be working with and what are they like? 

We're a close-knit team that genuinely enjoys spending time with one another outside of the office, and we don't take each other too seriously!  We love to collaborate on a number of initiatives, but we also spend a lot of our time entrenched in the entrepreneurial ecosystem, ultimately helping to reshape it. We deliver tangible benefits for our internal businesses and participate in various events globally where we learn from other global players. 

Sounds intriguing… but do I fit in? 

We recruit for three key talent areas in Innovation that are closely intertwined:

Relationship Management: We identify and manage relationships with key business partners at Scotiabank and with emerging external ventures in the global ecosystem. We uncover business needs and problems and bring thought leadership from the industry and ecosystem to help solve them. If you’re a natural storyteller with strong interpersonal and relationship management skills, and if you’re confident, tactful, and highly persuasive and influential, then this is a great place for you to thrive. 

Research & Development (R&D): Right now we’re focused on building an R&D innovation practice across the organization, looking to challenge ourselves from both a technology and business perspective. If you’re curious by nature, pragmatic but open, analytical, and motivated to make a change in the way we deliver banking to our customers today, then you’d be a great fit for this team. Someone who values convergence as an opportunity to intersect technology and customer needs while delivering business value would be very successful in R&D at Scotiabank. 

Proof of Concept (POC) Execution: We met with the business and uncovered their needs, we did a ton of research and development to identify potential opportunities to solve their problems, and now we have this awesome initiative we want to onboard: now, enter the POC Execution team. We deliver the execution of proof of concepts to help our business partners rapidly validate concepts and ideas. We’re in the process of re-designing our POC lifecycle – a great opportunity for someone to help us build something from the ground up! If you’re organized, have dealt with control functions, are skilled in managing and delivering technology projects, and have an outstanding ability to connect business needs throughout the organization and partners, then this is the perfect place for you to hone your skills and make an impact.  

What’s in it for me? 

  • We have an inclusive and collaborative working environment that encourages creativity, curiosity, and celebrates success!
  • We provide you with the tools and technology needed to create beautiful customer experiences
  •  You'll get to work with and learn from diverse industry leaders, who have hailed from top technology companies around the world
  • Dress codes don't apply here, being comfortable does!
  • Free shuttle service to and from Union Station, which means more money in your pocket 
  • Onsite subsidized cafeteria with a chef, so you can snack all day, every day

  • Access to thousands of online and in-person courses so you can brush up on skills, or learn new ones 
  • Clear career mapping and progression. We hire you for your talent and not just for the job. We want to see you succeed not just in your role but in your career as a whole 
  • A competitive rewards package that includes a base salary, a performance bonus, company matching programs on pension and profit sharing, paid vacation, personal & sick days, medical, vision and dental benefits that start from day one and much more!
