Why work for Scotiabank?
Scotiabank is among the largest banks in the world and is Canada’s most international bank. We are powered by our 89,000 high-performing (and awesome) teammates who make a real difference across the globe as a leading provider of advice, products, digital experiences, and financial services in more than 50 countries. Together with our Digital Factories around the world, we are dedicated to helping our 24 million customers become better-off.


This is a place where you’ll get to learn and develop your skills, while being recognized for your hard work. At Scotiabank, we’re passionate about bringing our whole selves to work, allowing us to create inclusive work environments for everyone to enjoy. Say hello to a career at Scotiabank.


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 next placements. As a result, you will get to learn, grow and experiment within different parts of our technology ecosystem. You will get a deep dive in innovation, software development, project management, technical architecture, and business analysis.


Throughout your placements you will get to work in our offices across the GTA (this includes Scarborough, downtown Toronto or our awesome innovation office in Waterloo). We are looking for individuals who don’t believe in geographical barriers, and are willing to travel.


I am?

You are an undergraduate student that gets excited by continuous integration and deployment. You have a passion for innovation and spend your free time building apps, 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 in Computer Science, Engineering or Mathematics, you have acquired basic knowledge in the software development life cycle, object oriented programming, and database programming. You are logical and familiar with development tools like Jenkins, Maven or Arifcatory. You love being involved in extracurricular activities such as hackathons or coding competitions.  You consider yourself an influencer that can translate business objectives into technical priorities. You are not afraid to roll up your sleeves to get things done!


How do I apply?

We want to get to know you! In addition to meeting us on campus, please submit a copy of your cover letter, resume and your most recent transcript. Be sure to include all of the awesome projects you have been a part of - we love seeing your Github and DevPost!
