Citizens Bank to Open Two ‘Tech Hubs’ in New England

NEC member Citizens Bank has announced plans to launch four “technology hubs” across the country, including one in Providence, RI and another in Boston, MA. The Providence-based bank is one of the oldest and largest financial institutions in the nation with currently over $162.7 billion in assets.

The hubs have been designed to help the bank stay ahead of their competitors and provide clients with innovative services. In recent years, the bank has continued to advance both its internal and external technology and has increased its number of partnerships with financial services technology firms. Citizens Bank will hire over 200 software engineers for its four tech hubs in Boston, Providence, Nashville, and Charlotte, many of them before the end of 2020. Through this expansion, Citizens Bank hopes to better meet the increasing customer demand for seamless digital solutions.

“We have built the essential foundation for innovation at the bank by fostering a culture that prioritizes digital-savvy talent, development, and continuous improvement. Our objective is to deliver exceptional end-to-end customer experiences by using the most innovative solution,” said Michael Ruttledge, Chief Information Officer at Citizens Bank.

The Council commends Citizens Bank for expanding job opportunities around New England and advancing its technology for its clients.
