“My volunteer time allows me to participate in outside business associations where I am able to meet new potential clients and cement relationships by offering to help. Although much of this occurs after hours, it provides another avenue to help build community.”

– Terri Banaszewski, Sunrise Banks

“The path that I took for volunteer time off focused on working with my local elementary school as a mentor for fourth graders. The flexibility of being able to volunteer during normal business hours had never been available to me before working with Sunrise. I get to help others, work with my local community, and show up when it’s most impactful – it’s rewarding on several levels and difficult to replace.”

– Jim Claypool, Sunrise Banks


Working at Sunrise Banks is more than your typical banking or fintech career. Our culture is something we’re proud of, and we use it to drive our mission, values, and innovation.

What does our culture look like? It takes shape in a number of ways – from virtual engagement activities like bingo and chalk contests to in-person volunteer outings.

We want fun, driven people who like to ask questions and thrive in a fast-paced environment. We all have quirks and we want to see yours, too. We want people who thrive with change and innovation. Fitting into our culture is not something that can be forced; it’s about choosing the right people.

We were also honored to be chosen as one of the Top 200 Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune in 2024!
