Department Overview

Building a World-Class, Diverse and Inclusive Technology Team at TD

We can’t afford to be boring. Neither can you. The scale and scope of what TD does may surprise you. The rapid pace of change makes it a business imperative for us to be smart and open-minded in the way we think about technology. TD’s technology and business teams become more intertwined as new opportunities present themselves. This new era in banking does not equal boring. Not at TD, anyway.

TD Engineering covers a broad range of exercises and initiatives including requirements gathering, design specification, industry analysis, vendor engagement and analysis, software development, project management, financial management, test plans and execution, and operational standards implementation. Our highly-coveted Engineers are interspersed amongst many areas of focus: innovation, design, execution, maintenance, strategy, portfolio management. We call all of these things incredible learning opportunities and no two assignments are ever the same.

Threat Protection is a part of the Security Services Engineering team and is responsible for tools that protect the Bank from malicious attacks. Our focus is on the endpoints (servers and workstations), data loss protection, Cloud and network malware protection, etc. We are a dynamic team with many security projects on the go any time. You will be a key contributor to keeping TD safe.

There’s room to grow in all of it.
