Careers at Gateway Bank

A message from President James Christensen

Thanks for your interest in working with Gateway Bank. Our bank has been consistently growing year over year, and we’re excited to continue expanding our team. Beyond simply fitting a job description, we’re looking for people who share our deeper purpose and core values.

Since 2007, Gateway has been the only community bank in Mesa, AZ. We focus on serving our neighbors in the Phoenix metro area and bringing the nostalgic banking experience into modern times.

Banking used to be different. We all had a personal banker who knew us by name, would pick up the phone to answer our questions quickly, and stay by our side through thick and thin. This experience is rare today, but we strive to keep it alive at Gateway Bank.

Learn more about our company and open positions below. If you’re interested in applying, please send us your resume and cover letter using the form. We look forward to getting to know you.


James Christensen
President of Gateway Bank

Our purpose and core values

Gateway Bank’s purpose is to serve the community.

We foster community inside and outside our walls by building a family-like environment for our staff, serving local businesses, and partnering with local organizations to give back.

Our values

Gateway Bank treats everyone like family. Whether you’re an employee, customer, or community member, you’ll get the same genuine care and attention from our team.

While the big banks have put their staff and customers on the defense, our community can rest assured that we always have your best interests in mind. We’re dedicated to being a trusted partner and always doing the right thing.

Personal service
Although Gateway was founded in the desert, our approach is a bit more Midwestern. We pride ourselves on providing a unique customer experience, where we focus on relationships over transactions and personalized service over commoditized banking.

Being proactive
Gateway’s customers rely on us to be their partner — a consultative guide who thinks one step ahead, responds quickly, and actively improves their financial situation. We take the same approach with our team, going above and beyond to help one another and support each other’s success.

Open Positions

Gateway Bank offers a competitive salary (commensurate with experience) and a full range of benefits. Gateway Bank is an Equal Opportunity Employer offering equal employment opportunities, regardless of race, religion, national origin, sex, age, sexual orientation, disability or military status.
