Applications Programmer I
Job Details
Sunset - Los Angeles, CA
Full Time
4 Year Degree
Information Technology

Water and Power Community Credit Union (WPCCU). WPCCU was founded in 1936 to serve the financial needs of the employees of Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. As Los Angeles grew, so did WPCCU. Today, after 80 years, WPCCU is a full-service community-based financial institution open to anyone who lives in Los Angeles County.


At WPPCU, we are passionate about providing really cool banking solutions and revising the way people experience financial services. “Helping you afford life” and “People before profits” aren’t just buzz words for us. They’re literally words we live by. Shareholder profits don’t drive us. Our members, our families, and the communities we live and work in are all that matter here.


We’re strong supporters of the credit union movement, and of providing our members with the education, support and guidance to build strong, independent financial futures. WPCCU can give employees the best of both worlds—a financially stable place to work and one nimble enough to behave like a “start-up.”


And we want your help.

Other Important Information
