Velocity- Technology Intern Development Program

4-Month Internship (January-April 2021)

WORK TERM: 4-month Winter 2021 term (Jan - April)


 What Can I Expect from the Velocity Technology 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 parts of our technology ecosystem. In your internship you will have the option to work in one of the following tech business lines: 


  1. Software Development
  2. Product Management
  3. Technical Architecture
  4. Business Analysis
  5. Data Science


*You will find a detail description of each of the above roles under Step 1 of “How do I apply” below


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!


How do I apply?


For students, we believe evaluating you through relationships over resumes, and 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 the 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 below:


  1. Complete your PLUM profile based on which tech business lines you prefer:

Note: You do not need to complete your plum profile multiple times if you're applying to multiple positions from the list below. If you are applying to multiple positions, just be sure to go to the links to link your plum profile with the individual requisitions

    2. Product Management, Click here
    3. Technical Architecture, Click here
    4. Business Analyst, Click here
    5. Data Scientist, Click here

2. Complete a very short one-way video interview here.  If you have already completed this video interview, you are not required to complete it again.


3.  Apply to the role through our career site! When the application asks for your resume, instead upload a screenshot of your plum to show us you’ve completed it, we have full access to your entire profile from Plum and won’t use the screenshot but it’s a great reminder for each of you to have completed it. Alternatively, you can submit a resume if you want, we just will not be relying on it when we assess you.


To reiterate, when it asks you to submit your resume, you are not required to do so! Instead attach a PDF of your Plum profile, under the "resume" section. *Cover letters are optional. Include any interesting projects you have worked on, with links to your Github!


Also, if you want to rank your preferences amongst the positions above now is your chance! Do so here! (If you don’t complete this we will assume you are indifferent)

We thank you all for your interest in Scotiabank!  However, only those selected for an interview will be contacted. If you require accommodation during the recruitment and selection process, please let us know. We will work with you to meet your needs
