Technology is transforming the future of banking – and TD is looking for skilled talent to help power that transformation.
As financial institutions like TD increasingly look to new technologies to foster deeper relationships with customers, recruiting and retaining top-tier tech talent is becoming critical. TD continues to evolve its capabilities in a range of tech areas, including engineering, automation tools, artificial intelligence (AI), cloud technology, and advancing cybersecurity defenses.
As part of its strategy to develop the best possible technologies, TD plans to hire more than 2,000 colleagues into tech-related roles this year alone. The Bank is particularly looking for talent with skills in cloud, engineering, dev ops, machine learning, automation, agile methodology, UX design, and mobile.
In the video above, you'll hear from two TD tech leaders – Licenia Rojas, Senior Vice President, Chief Engineer and Chief Architect; and Sophia Leung, Senior Vice President, Head of Protect Platform – about how technology is helping to deliver value to TD customers and what makes working at a bank unique.
"We are actually helping to impact and enrich the lives of our customers through technology. You could be helping someone with their first mortgage, " said Rojas.
Technology is changing the financial services industry in every way, Leung says. When technology and business collide, it's an opportunity for technologists to learn new skills and stretch the boundaries of their career development.
"It's a great intersection for people who really want to have a career where they get challenged every day and really get to learn," said Leung.
TD has consistently demonstrated its commitment to new technologies and has received industry recognition for its leadership in AI and digital capabilities that have been used to help power new experiences for its customers.
