Hello, we're FirstBank
We serve as the technical force behind Colorado’s largest locally owned bank. Our technology department is 300+ strong, with big plans for growth. We owe our success to the core values we’ve held since being founded in 1963. Our mission is 'banking for good', to do our best to do right by our customers, communities, and employees.
Why Work with Us?
We are set apart by our blend of financial stability and proactive vision for technology. Work-life balance matters to us: most of our tech employees have the opportunity to work from home 2-3 days per week. We believe in promoting from within: striving to create a culture that fosters growth and development both personally and professionally.
An Insider's view of FirstBank
How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?
Work-life balance at FirstBank is exactly what I was looking for. The flexible hours and work-from-home opportunities allow my work to fit into my life more easily. As someone who lives for the outdoors, whether it be climbing, fishing, or skiing, FirstBank has allowed me to maximize my productivity in the office while still pursuing my passions.
What projects are you most excited about?
I am most excited about building new solutions and migrating applications to the cloud. We are constantly looking for opportunities to deliver products and services built on leading-edge technologies that enable us to remain competitive. Moving to the cloud is allowing us to combine a flexible architecture and become responsive to business needs.
How does the company support your career growth?
I started 18 months ago as a Java Developer. I have already been promoted to the next level technically. There is continuous support from FirstBank to stay up to date with current technology trends, for example: online courses, classroom training and certifications.
How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?
I take the approach that I work for my team: they are my customers. If I can respond to them quickly, then I can reinforce the momentum that they have worked so hard to create.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?
I started with FirstBank in April 2006 as a Management Trainee. As a recent graduate with a Marketing degree, I thought, “I’ll give this a try”. 13 years later I am now an Executive Vice President overseeing our PMO. I am grateful for the journey FirstBank has allowed me to take with my career. They truly value, promote, and support growth.
