TD Bank: AVP Infrastructure Engineering

Not very many of you are likely to have the qualifications to be an Assistant VP of Infrastructure Engineering for TD Bank, so I’m going to keep this pretty short.  That said, the job sounds reasonably interesting, more so than I’d expect for an AVP position at a bank, and the pay range quoted on one of the listings I saw went up to $150k, so it seems safe to suggest that if you have the qualifications for this position, you might want to take a quick look:

Infrastructure Engineering is responsible for the build, test, implementation and third-level support of all infrastructure technologies for the bank. The Software Engineering team will be assembled from a set of existing groups within Engineering, and will fulfill that mandate for all software components of our infrastructure, including: database, security, directory, messaging, mobility, middleware, content management, development tools, test tools, and production support tools.

Reporting to the VP, Engineering the successful candidate will oversee an annual plan of approximately $50mm and a team of 143 FTEs spread across five campuses: Scarborough, Mississauga, London, Toronto and Lewiston, Maine.

The role is accountable for leading the teams in Security, Directory, Software Engineering and Database and ensures this North American team is aligned with ITS strategic initiatives.

Working with internal, the incumbent will require an in depth understanding of their business needs while identifying and leveraging synergies across the partners. Leads the team to deliver solutions in assigned functional area, meet SLA’s, Interface with IT, finance, audit, business unit management and other areas of our client to ensure integrated processes, efficient introduction of new technologies, retirement of obsolete technologies and support for business-led initiatives requiring the capabilities of this infrastructure.

The original TD posting is pretty old, but headhunters seem to be carrying the torch now, so if you’re interested, you’ll want to work with them: Brainhunter on Working in Toronto, Modis on Higher Bracket.

In Summary
Very senior role for a bank, and yet, not deathly boring.  Seems like it’s well-compensated.   What else could you ask for?
