Requisition ID: 120524

Join a purpose driven winning team, committed to results, in an inclusive and high-performing culture.


VELOCITY - Software Engineering - Summer 2022


WORK TERM: 4 Months - Summer 2022 (May-August)


 What Can I Expect from the Velocity Program?

This is not your average internship or co-op! This is a customized experience that focuses on providing you with the development and tools you need to grow your career. In Velocity you will gain exposure to both business and technology by having a customized plan for your next internship or co-op. Yes, you read that correctly. After successfully completing your first co-op or internship, we will work with you to establish a learning and mentorship plan which also outlines your future placements. As a result, you will get to learn, grow and experiment within different areas of both Scotiabank and Tangerine.


You Will…

  • Work with a squad of go-getters to deliver clean and effective solutions
  • Produce workable prototypes to illustrate concepts iteratively and be able to provide detailed specifications for use by the other team members
  • Deliver high quality implementations by practicing best software development practices 
  • Be a culture champion pivotal in driving culture change at all levels
  • Experiment & learn!


You Are?

You are an undergraduate student that gets excited by continuous integration and deployment. You have a passion for innovation and spend your free time problem solving and tinkering with new technologies. You thrive in a fast paced ever changing environment and need to be a part of something BIG. You love to learn and envision yourself working for an international organization that heavily invests in your future.

Throughout your undergrad, you have acquired basic knowledge in the software development life cycle, object-oriented programming, and database programming. You consider yourself an influencer that can translate business objectives into technical priorities. You are logical, and familiar with various development tools. You love being involved in extracurricular activities such as hackathons or tech conferences.  You are not afraid to roll up your sleeves and get things done!


You have basic knowledge in…

  • Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC)
  • Database knowledge (Postgres, Oracle, SQL Server, etc.)
  • Programming Languages (Java, JavaScript, React, C , C++ etc.)
  • Development tools (Jenkins, Maven, Artifactory, etc.)
  • Agile Methodologies (Scrum, Kanban, XP, etc)



How to apply?

For students, we believe evaluating you through relationships over resumes, and we are focused on learning about who you are and what you’re interested in to uncover your true potential. In short, we don’t believe resumes will provide us with an accurate depiction of what you’re truly about in order to properly assess your potential.  Instead, we want to get to know YOU and hear about your experiences that have shaped you. We know… this might sound crazy but we do not want you to submit your resume. Instead, we ask that as part of your application, you complete the steps below:


1) Complete your PLUM Profile here

2) Take a screenshot of your completed PLUM profile.

3) Complete a very short one-way video interview by clicking here 

4) When it prompts you to submit your resume, do not attach your resume! Instead, attach the screenshot of your PLUM profile under the "resume" section (step #2 above). Cover letters are optional – not required.

Only those candidates selected for an interview will be contacted. If you require accommodation during the recruitment and selection process, please let us know.
