At Northern Trust, we place a huge value on “fit” – our clients, the services we provide, the technology we create, and most importantly, the employees we hire.

So, before we ask you to apply for a specific role, we want to get to know you - what you value, how you solve problems, what you aspire to, and whether we’re a good “fit” for your skills and career goals. If we both agree it’s a good fit, we will work to find the right role for you.

Why Northern Trust?

We know: a 129 year old bank isn’t necessarily the most obvious place to look for a job in tech. But the industry is changing, and as we grow and invest in technology, we offer an opportunity for you to have a big impact on a global company early in your career. Not to mention:

Opportunity for Growth - Our employees have grown with our business, expanding their skills, their roles, and their earning potential. Movement within the company is encouraged, opening up a variety of opportunities for advancement and growth well into the future.

Unique Culture - People matter at Northern Trust - senior leaders are accessible and vested in mentoring employees early in their career. At Northern Trust you’ll be part of a collaborative work culture that emphasizes balance. Our employees work hard, but also have interests outside of the office. We offer work from home and alternate work hours so employees can balance their professional and private lives.

Stability – We’ve been around for 129 years. We manage more than $1 trillion in assets, and we’re entrusted with safeguarding more than $10 trillion more on behalf of institutions and individuals around the world. We’re renowned for our financial strength and long-term stability. Northern Trust combines the opportunity and challenge of working on cutting edge technology with the stability and peace of mind knowing we’ll be around for the long term.
