We’re not a bank, and it shows in our culture.

We care, like actually care, about our members, and take the time to get to know them in order to do what’s best for them.

At Conexus, we’re authentic, bold, creative, and responsible. Our employees are the reason we consistently deliver outstanding member experiences. They’re more than members of a team, they’re members of the Conexus family.

Under your guidance, your team will identify and manage risks on an ongoing basis. You will leverage available technology and partners in order to provide and enhance the world-class experience our members have come to expect.
