M&T Bank plans to hire more than 1,000 employees in Western New York over the next several years as the Buffalo-based bank invests in its technology development. The first 250 career opportunities are expected to be posted and filled by the end of this year.

“We want M&T to be a compelling destination for talented, innovative, tech-savvy, people,” said M&T’s Chief Information Officer Michael Wisler in a statement. “We’ve recently renovated our workspaces into more engaging, open and collaborative environments with the best technology, standing desks and comfortable lounges, giving people much more choice and control over where they work during the day. We’re also doing more to support our local colleges and universities, as well as the startup community, which help make our communities destinations for people seeking opportunity.”

Both college graduates and those with more than five years professional experience are encouraged to apply. If you have more than five years experience, your position could command more than $100,000.

Career opportunities include software engineers, web developers and other digital positions. New employees will be eligible for the company's annual bonus plan, medical, dental, vision, and life insurance benefits. The company hopes to begin hiring 100 new college graduates per year moving forward.

“Talent is a differentiator—for our company and our communities,” said René Jones, Chairman and CEO of M&T Bank. “M&T’s continued success will be driven by advancing a culture of innovation, where creative collisions happen, where new talent and new ideas come together to better meet the needs of our customers and communities, to better deliver our brand of banking, in today’s changing world, to better fulfill our promise and our purpose and to make a difference in people’s lives.”

With more than 7,000 employees in Western New York, M&T Bank is one of the largest private-sector employers in the Buffalo region.
