Assistant Director, Information Technology Services
Location: Ottawa (Downtown), ON, CA

The Bank of Canada is embarking on a program of major social significance to design a contingent system for a central bank digital currency (CBDC), which can be thought of as a banknote, but in digital form. This project will require us to break new ground. It will take into consideration a wide variety of factors, including policy considerations, diverse stakeholder needs, difficult technical challenges and ensuring the development of a world-class user, inclusive, experience.

We are looking to fill two Assistant Director roles. One will be responsible for the system and business design team and the other will focus on leading the security, privacy and resilience team for this project. Both positions will be reporting to the Director, Fintech Research in the IT Services department, working closely with the Product Architect, your fellow Assistant Director and other team members.
