  • You focus on impact over hard work : what isn't of a concern is the hours you work, but your results and impact on team members and customers
  • You like to solve difficult problems, together : no one said transforming banking was going to be easy, but we’re collectively reimagining it and there are no solo heroes welcome
  • You operate with a mentality of Build-Measure-Learn : our agile mindset is not just for our technical teams, it's a mindset that every one of us is asked to operate from.
  • We move fast, we make mistakes but we measure the impact, learn, grow and change as a result

  • You focus on 10X and leave the incremental thinking at home : if something doesn't have significant impact, you are the person to challenge whether or not it's worth doing
  • You do it with passion or not at all : you’re inspired by our purpose and you see the link between yourself and the work you are doing to transform banking
  • You’re comfortable with being uncomfortable : we won’t always have the answers and change is a constant in our world. As a Transformer you trust in our vision and own an attitude of willingness and patience
  • You keep the customer at the heart of everything you do : Empathy is a core driver in which you navigate the world. You don’t build products, processes and solutions for the sake of checking something off your checklist, you build with the end user in mind, openly engaging new ideas, listening with intent and making decisions with the desire to balance both compassion with logical reasoning.
  • As a team member with the Transformation team at ATB, you can expect :

  • No day will ever be the same - we’re learning, iterating and making big steps towards our vision of transforming an entire industry, everyday

  • Bragging rights! You get to call yourself a Transformer and an ATBer and know you play a direct role in helping us become a cutting edge financial institution (it’s going to feel more like a technology company, but either way it’s hella cool.)
  • And being part of ATB Financial you get :

  • An excellent benefits and pension package, opportunities for career advancement, and a financial institution that’s leading the way in change now you’re talking about a career with a company that allows you to grow.
