“ We Question and Innovate.” These five words are one of the core ways we work in Canadian Division Technology. Perhaps they describe how you like to approach problems – and hey, maybe how you approach life overall. You question the way things are done, do some deep analysis, and devise innovative solutions that we can launch together. We want you to do it with us as a Database Analyst as part of our Canadian Manulife team. Here’s the deal: we need your big, beautiful brain to help transform team technical challenges and objectives into tangible solutions that we can deliver and provide exceptional value. You’ll do things like:
Use your mad analytical skills to bring order to chaos. Okay, maybe not full-on zombie apocalypse chaos, but you’ll keep projects on track using databases and tools like PowerShell.
Analyze business systems and solve complex problems.
Collaborate with other smart people like Database Analysts and Business Analysts to develop top-notch business/system requirements…and do it before the deadline hits.
Be a watchdog for issues as they crop up – and be quick to recommend solutions.
Work closely with database analysts so the best solutions go forward…perfectly. Qualifications
This is the job for you because:
You learn fast. Like “The Flash” fast. You pick up new ideas, concepts, technologies, applications, and tools at warp speed.
You’ve got experience with systems development and software configuration – as well as the MS Office software suite.
You question everything, in a way that gets to the root of an issue so you can go do something about it.
You’re an all-round super star: an enthusiastic team player with crazy-good communications skills who puts the customer at the centre of everything you do.
You know that part of innovation is failure. And when you fail, you always fail forward…learning something new and becoming even better than you were before.
You possess a degree in Computer Science, Engineering, Business, Finance, or Math. And hey, if you have a combo of Business and another discipline, you’ll score bonus points with us!
Regardless of what level role you’re looking for (because we have Database Analyst roles that range from Junior all the way to Senior) you’re someone who looks for gaps and figures out the best way to fill them. Why come to Manulife? Because we’re not who you think we are. We’re not some stuffy, old insurance company . We’re 1,100 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).
