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.

“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 Digital Analytics Community of Practice; therefore actual roles, in reality, will vary in their seniority and specific skill sets needed.”


What does Analytics at Scotia really mean? 

We like to think of ourselves as superheroes, using the power of data to benefit the Bank and its customers! We make data-driven decisions that protect our customers, and we partner with internal clients, like our Marketing and Engineering teams, to lead data-driven initiatives that align with critical business objectives. Every project we’re involved in benefits from our keen eye for detail and endless appetite to investigate the numbers we’re working with. We focus on three major streams: Analytics and Reporting, Data Operations (Data Engineering), and Data Science.

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

In addition to working on projects that directly correlate to business objectives, we’re always striving to think of ways to improve the way our customer's bank through a good sense of precision, detail and carbon science. You’ll get to work with a variety of tools, including open-source, as well as within a variety of environments depending on the business line and initiative you’re focusing on. 


A couple of key projects we’ve recently worked on include…

Search Engine for Scotiabankers: We have a lot of smart people working together at Scotiabank, but sometimes it’s hard to stay on top of information (not to mention acronyms)! We created a bank-wide search engine that links to the millions of pages that are buried in the background but hold valuable information.  

Scotiabank’s new mobile banking app: While this was a collaborative effort, the Analytics and Data Science teams played an integral role in the development of the new Scotia app. With a customer-first mindset and approach, we supported the teams by helping them target audiences more intelligently. We know that a student has different needs than a first time home buyer, and we’re making sure that information is relevant based on personalization. 

Sounds intriguing… but how do I fit in?

  • On the technical side, we are looking for domain knowledge, GCP, Python, R, or Hadoop

Key areas we recruit for include…

Data Scientist: You will create and deploy model and algorithm testing strategies to ensure model predictability holds.

Data Engineer: You will be Integral to maintaining operational stability, and formulating techniques for quality data collection to ensure adequacy, accuracy, and legitimacy of data.
