An Insider's view of Northern Trust

How does your team reward individual success?

I joined Northern Trust as a novice python developer fresh out of college. Over the next few years, I gained exposure to blockchain, machine learning & frontend UI. This organization invested in me, giving me room to be creative & innovative in solving problems. Now, I am confident in my skillset and ready to bring my experiences to the table.
