We know that our employees are our greatest assets, so keeping them healthy and happy is important to us. Western Alliance Bank offers a benefits package that will take care of you–today and in the future. Our package includes generous medical, dental, and vision care; life and disability insurance; a 401(k); employee education and development; plus an onsite gym, team sports, regularly scheduled social activities, and much more.
Bridge Bank offers an outstanding combination of great people, strong leadership, and a dynamic culture that celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit. We aren’t guided by limitations, we’re guided by possibilities. We look beyond the off-the-shelf solutions offered by so many banks and find creative solutions to our customers’ needs. We’ve done it for customers like Pandora, Solar City, StumbleUpon, and Boudin Bakery. If you like to be challenged and appreciate being supported in your goals, Bridge Bank could be the perfect fit.
At Bridge Bank we foster a culture of continuous learning and growth. Bridge Bank University (BBU) offers year-round classes to help employees hone their skills and develop their full potential. From our one-year-long intensive training program for our credit analysts, to an 18-month-long leadership journey program for senior managers, Bridge Bank provides employees the tools they need to succeed at any stage of their career. For those that may not be in training programs, we also offer year-round classes to employees on topics ranging from business ethics to analyzing financial statements.
We like to think our people are cut from a different cloth. They’re independent thinkers. They thrive on overcoming challenges. They’re genuine and authentic, able to put themselves in others’ shoes. At Bridge Bank, they get the tools, resources and freedom to make the impossible, possible. Every member of the Bridge Bank team is connected through our Shared Values: Exceed Expectations, Earn Trust, and Take Ownership. If you’d like to be connected, too, let’s talk.
Bridge Bank was born in Silicon Valley amidst one of the toughest business environments ever seen. We’ve become smarter and stronger for it, and have since grown to ten offices serving every part of the country. Our headquarters remain located in San Jose, CA, the heart of the Valley. We have multiple offices in Northern and Southern California. Our remaining offices can be found in other thriving centers of tech and business, including: Dallas, TX, Reston, VA, and Boston, MA.

"Bridge Bank has proved to be small enough to truly care about their employees but large enough to continually challenge me and offer room for growth. After working in the Note Department for six years, I decided I was ready for a change. While it would have been more convenient to the bank for me to stay where I was, they supported my decision, and I was able to move into the Renewable Resource group."
Credit Compliance Team
I had a friend at Bridge Bank who kept telling me how much she enjoyed working here and how well the bank takes care of their employees, so I decided to join the bank. While I’m relatively new, it’s already clear that management is very supportive. It’s a wonderful place for learning and career growth, and there is also a great work-life balance.
I was thrilled when I received an offer to join such a dynamic company. It’s fascinating to work with visionaries from so many fields, from clean tech to pharmaceutical R&D. I find it rewarding to watch a client develop, knowing that you and your team were the catalyst that allowed the client to reach their full potential.
Bridge Bank’s relationship-oriented approach to banking combined with a team-first environment and great coworkers has created an enjoyable work atmosphere. It’s very rewarding to help some of my region’s most innovative and exciting companies overcome their financing challenges and meet their banking needs.
