About the job

Start Here

Finding a job can be overwhelming — plowing through dense, super specific job descriptions, spending hours filling out applications, and then, if you’re lucky, you get a tag-team interview that leaves you spinning.

Not here.

At Canvas, we’re dedicated to transforming financial services and that includes recruitment. We aren’t ashamed to say it. Working here is delightful. We’re a family, and the time we spend together is full of support and camaraderie, and it’s fun. Make no mistake, we’re serious-minded professionals who take our responsibilities to heart, but the pettiness and bureaucracy you find in much of corporate America is out of bounds here.

Who We Are

We are Canvas and we are passionate about disrupting the way people experience financial services. “Helping you afford life” and “People before profits” aren’t just advertising taglines for us. They’re literally words we live by. Shareholder profits don’t drive us. Our members, our families, and the communities we live and work in are all that matter here. (World peace is super important too.) We’re strong supporters of the credit union movement, of providing our members with the education, support, and guidance to build strong, independent financial futures. And we want your help.
