Using smart technology, we take financial services that are often confusing, opaque and expensive and make them transparent and low-cost for everyone. We’re the largest fintech company in Canada, with over 3 million users who trust us with more than $30 billion in assets.
Our teams ship often and make an impact with groundbreaking ideas. We're looking for talented people who keep it simple and value collaboration and humility as we continue to create inclusive and high-performing teams where people can be inspired to do their best work.
​Wealthsimple Operations Associates own and scale processes intelligently, with analytics, grit, and grace. We manage billions of dollars, so the stakes are high. We want to deliver extraordinary experiences that meet our client's on-demand expectations while being a compliance leader. At Wealthsimple, we are maker-owners, we believe that simple is better, and we do what's right for each client.

In this role, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Be a key member of the Corporate Actions team; this team is responsible for processing corporate actions and dividends on clients' accounts.
  • Work directly with motivated Operations Associates to ensure the accuracy of our records for clients.
  • Take ownership of critical tasks escalating to the trade desk, securities lending teams, management and other teams as necessary to reduce risk.
  • Analyze the impact and changes required to the corporate actions and dividends processes for new product launches.
  • Be a subject matter expert on tax issues related to corporate actions and dividends.
  • Troubleshoot, manage and proactively resolve reconciliation differences.
  • Use data to identify inefficiencies and propose solutions.
  • Develop processes to increase the efficiency of our back-office operations.

We're looking for someone who:

  • Has 5+ years experience working at a broker-dealer handling back office corporate action processing for equities and options (IIROC-regulated dealer is preferred).
  • Has experience working with CDS and DTCC.
  • Possesses strong Excel skills.
  • Has completed or is pursuing industry courses (CSC, DFOL etc.).
  • Has experience (or familiarity) with programming - this is a plus (especially SQL).
  • Is organized with strong attention to detail, is comfortable working with large datasets, and can meet tight deadlines.
  • Has great people skills and a positive attitude. You will be working in a highly collaborative environment.
  • Is naturally curious: if something seems off, you want to figure out what’s going on.
  • Is passionate about technology, specifically fintech.
