We can transform banking, reimagine it, make banking work for people. We’re on a journey  to make meaningful impacts on an industry that has the power to transform a person’s life. When we talk about transformation at ATB Financial, we’re not just talking about pie in the sky ideas, we’re listening and collaborating to bring those ideas to life. To put it simply, we’re on a mission to reinvent how banking can support people's lives. We’re going to  provide meaningful solutions to problems, deepen our connection with customers and while we’re at it, transform ourselves from the inside out. 

We need collaborative visionaries and executors who are eager to listen to our customers in order to do things other banks wouldn’t do. We’re building a team of relentless, passionate and inquisitive ATB transformers to build our bench strength in disrupting ourselves before we get disrupted.

Senior Analytics  Manager – Enterprise Data Science

** Please note this position is a one year term **

We use data science to transform banking. Through predictive modeling and machine learning, we anticipate our customers’ needs and connect them to ATB experts and solutions. As a Senior Analytics Manager you love to solve new problems - and are hungry for feedback on how those solutions can be improved. You are a tremendous collaborator who works effectively with a variety of stakeholders: customer-facing staff, business managers, data scientists and information architects. You are endlessly curious and always looking for ways to better understand customer needs and behaviour.

The Senior Analytics Manager is an analytical entrepreneur that translates business concepts and objectives into value-producing data products supported throughout the innovation lifecycle. Specifically, you will:

  • Create the analytical framework to approach a business problem by drawing upon statistical modelling/machine learning/artificial intelligence

  • Work in a collaborative, agile manner with ATB Data Scientists, Analysts, business stakeholders and external partners to develop a proposition

  • For concepts that successfully migrate from proof-of-concept to production-ready programs, you can create a community of stakeholders, and manage a feedback pipeline that drives further enhancements, increases usage and amplifies the impact of data science at ATB


  • You have experience using data transformation and manipulation to inform predictive modeling and algorithm development (e.g., SQL, SAS, R, Python)

  • You have  an educational background with a technical component such as an Undergraduate / Masters / PhD in Business, Economics, Computer Science, Mathematics / Statistics, Operations Research, or in a related field
    You’ve worked with different types of data infrastructures (e.g., data warehouses, lakes or APIs)

  • You have experience applying statistical techniques, machine learning methods or artificial intelligence to data to solve valuable business problems

  • You have a track record of supporting your creations, taking proof of concepts to scale, growing your user base and learning from incoming data to sharpen your value proposition

  • You’ve got an open-source mindset -  you can make the connection between a new problem and existing algorithms/skillsets to create new value


  • 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

  • The ability to grow a career within an inspiring, impact focused culture where you are surrounded by changemakers and leaders that empower you to use your voice to make banking work for people

  • To be a part of the energy of an organization that is unlike any other, where you may pinch yourself on the daily and wonder how you got so lucky

  • 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. 

  • Amazing benefits for your everyday banking, mortgages, loans and investments needs.

  • Be a part of an award-winning employer-of-choice – we have the best of the best working for Albertans.
