Meaningful tech jobs with growth potential will help strengthen the city’s emerging tech ecosystem

RBC has announced plans to create 300 technology roles at a new Calgary Innovation Hub scheduled to launch this September. The Hub will help grow the city’s tech ecosystem with meaningful tech jobs in high-demand areas such as artificial intelligence, data engineering, full stack agile software delivery, site reliability engineering, machine learning and data analytics, among other skills.  

“We see tremendous opportunities ahead in Alberta, as we expand our technology capabilities and presence in this space,” says Jeff Boyd, Regional President, Alberta and Territories, RBC.  “We look forward to actively supporting all parts of our diversified economy as the Province prepares for and navigates the economic and industry transitions that have already begun.”

RBC plans to welcome 300 tech employees over the next three years to its new Calgary Innovation Hub, who will join its global Technology & Operations team and contribute to the organization’s strategy to create more value through technology and build an innovation ecosystem that empowers clients, advances businesses and supports communities. They will join the approximately 1,500 RBC employees in Calgary and more than 4,000 in Alberta who currently support its Wealth Management, Capital Markets and Personal and Commercial Banking businesses.
