  • Dave McKay: Why RBC is betting on the future of AI

    • In an exclusive chat with BNN, the president and CEO of RBC emphasizes the urgency for Canada to create the conditions and opportunities that will keep our tech talent at home and what RBC is doing to make that vision a reality.


Working for a bank doesn’t mean you have to number-crunch in a cubicle, dream in Excel, and wear Gordon Gekko three-piece suits. RBC Research offers a stimulating work environment and the platform to do world-class machine learning in a start-up culture. If contemplating on how machines can autonomously build knowledge from observation is what you do in your spare time, then you are one of us. We move quickly, challenge each other, and are here to invent the future of banking.

Does this sound like you? Then let’s talk. You can join us full-time or as an intern. Check out the career opportunities listed below and watch for more opportunities as our team grows.
