Does change excite you? Do you want to be part of the team that redefines how we get work done? We are changing the way we develop and we want you to be part of it! We are growing our Derivatives Experience Office, with the mandate to power world-class customer and employee experiences through software.


The customer is at the focus of everything we do, and millions of end users rely on our products daily. We believe in the value of empowering engineers with the resources to solve critical problems for the future of the business, which is why we need you.


We are seeking self-motivated engineers, who are obsessed with delivering value, are forward-thinking, and excited to see the successful implementation of the products they deliver. 

As a Software Engineer Co-Op, you will:


       Collaborate with product managers, lead engineers, other software engineers, and operations engineers to uncover pain points and opportunities to deliver new business value through software

       Prototype and build new functionality to deliver on key product objectives

       Design and deliver cloud-native services and data structures that enable an exceptional user experience

       Maintain and support these services, with accountability for production reliability and usage, and the delivery of new functionality


You will bring and continuously build upon the following skills:


       An entrepreneurial spirit and comfort working within a rapidly changing startup environment; you love the challenge of working on a small team and being part of a larger movement to change the engineering culture of an enterprise

       Familiarity with agile and DevOps principles, test-driven development, continuous integration, and other approaches to accelerate the delivery of new features

       Experimenting with emerging technologies and understanding how they will impact what comes next

       A capacity for constant learning from both success and failure, remaining open to change and continuous improvement

       Excellent organizational and problem-solving abilities that enable you to manage through creative abrasion

       Strong verbal and written communication with the ability to effectively articulate and communicate technical vision, possibilities, and outcomes across all levels in the organization

       Understanding and working knowledge of the end-to-end Derivatives Lifecycle as well as a sound understanding of various Derivatives products


See what our students are saying about working at Manulife/John Hancock:

Last year Manulife / John Hancock spent over $1 billion on technology. You will be working with:


       Languages such as Java, JavaScript, .NET, HTML5, CSS3, Swift and/or similar technologies

       Cloud Foundry and other components supporting a highly-automated global engineering platform

       Open source! As we accelerate our delivery of world-class experiences, we know embracing open source technologies will help us get there. Any experience with open source is very attractive to us!

Why come to Manulife?
Because we’re not who you think we are. We’re not some stuffy, old insurance company. We’re actually 1100 technology specialists dedicated to improving the health and wealth of Canadians – and doing it in some pretty cool ways. You might be surprised to know that Co-ops love Manulife – and come back term after term. Why? We’ve got what you’re looking for…jobs that embed you in passionate, productive teams, jobs that leave you with great stories to tell at your next set of interviews, jobs that make a Co-op term a fun, profitable break from school. Every term we hire 100+ students – so you’ll have plenty of new friends to chill with. And you can meet your new friends at tons of Co-op events like our recent Execs-serve-ice-cream day, gingerbread house day, and pizza…there’s usually pizza involved.
You’ll also have lots of opportunities for professional growth. Linked In workshop? Yes! Personal branding workshop? Yes! Access to all our learning and development resources? You bet!  
We want you here as a Co-op. And we want to make your experience with us SO AMAZING that you join us in a fulltime after you graduate.  It’s really that simple.
So what’s next?
Wow us with a PDF that includes your resume, a cover letter telling us how awesome you are, your transcript, and your Co-op work history (if you have one).
