How To Join Our Team

Step 1

The first step to becoming part of our team is to submit your résumé for review along with anything else you wish to include.

If you are an individual with a disability and require a reasonable accommodation for any part of the employment process, please contact us by calling 800.752.4628 or emailing [email protected]

Step 2

If we determine that your interests and skills are a good fit for the open position, our next step is an introductory phone call with Human Resources. During this call, we’ll learn more about you and answer any questions you may have.

Step 3

If it seems like you would be a mutual fit, we would schedule you with our hiring manager to bring you into the office (in normal times). We will focus on your work skills that may involve a case study in order to better understand how you approach the job.

Step 4

Before making an offer we conduct reference and background checks.

Interviewing Tips

Despite there being no exact template for success at ALM First, our people share similar qualities that help contribute to their success and making work fun like problem solving skills, entrepreneurial spirit, emotional intelligence, passion for financial institutions and capital markets.

We want candidates excited, not anxious for interviews, and we want them to know they’re being interviewed by smart and caring people eager to learn about them and help them find their fit, which involves interviewing us.

We want candidates prepared to make personal connections during the interview because we’re already impressed by their experience so instead of walking us through something we already read, we want to understand how and why they mastered certain skills or learned particular lessons in their past.

We’ll pose ambiguous questions, including Fermi problems, and the candidate will have to formulate assumptions and articulate thoughts in a fast-paced, logical dialogue even if the candidate doesn’t have financial institution domain expertise.

Calm, confident, collected is what we want to see throughout.

Open Positions at ALM First

When applying online for jobs, we strongly encourage you to validate postings you see on third-party websites with our Careers page to ensure authenticity. If you can’t find the job on our Careers page, it may be a fraudulent posting.
