  • Overview

    We are not your typical financial services firm. For starters, we’re a fast-growing company with 30 percent of our employee head count in technology. We’ve been recognized as a Best Place to Work 38 times (and counting), and Computerworld has ranked us highly nationwide for the past 11 years as one of the best places to work in IT—and for good reason. We think and have fun like a start-up (bocce tournament, annual turkey fry, summer outing, etc.) yet have the financial stability to offer you the best training and technology money can buy. Conveniently located on the commuter rail near the intersection of I-95 and the Mass Pike, we’re accessible from anywhere—and away from the congestion of a downtown commute.
    Discover what it’s like to be psyched to come to work every day! We offer you:


    • Generous bonus and stock option incentive plans
    • Use of our chairman’s vacation properties (Cape Cod, Lake Winnipesaukee, Sunday River, Key Biscayne, Las Vegas, Park City, the Bahamas, and the Dominican Republic) at no cost
    • Fully paid maternity leave (12 weeks) and spousal leave (3 weeks)
    • An opportunity to participate in our Idea Lab, a fun and dynamic program that lets us dedicate time to experimentation
    • A more relaxed, “dress for your day” dress code
    • A free on-site fitness center
    • Ample opportunity to volunteer with and support local charities
    • A VTO (volunteer time off) day to use toward a cause that’s important to you
    • Tuition reimbursement
    • Free breakfast on Fridays
    • A competitive benefits package—and much more

    About the Opportunity

It is built primarily using Microsoft technologies, including .NET and SQL Server. We also have a public-facing site and mobile versions of our tools. Our development approach has always been Agile, and we recently revamped our team structure based on Scrum.
