Working at American Century Investments

Build a career and be part of something bigger.

Two Missions for the Good of All of Us

When you think of applying for a new job, you should know what the company stands for and who they are.

Each American Century Investments employee will tell you that we manage money knowing that every investment can impact someone else. That’s because of our two powerful missions: help people with their financial futures and make a difference for everyone on this amazing planet.

Tackling such big goals starts with a quest to outperform for all kinds of clients: individual investors, financial professionals and global institutions. These results can then help defeat diseases like cancer and Alzheimer’s. How? Because 40% of our profits support life-changing medical research at the Stowers Institute for Medical Research. This purpose inspires all employees. Every. Single. Day.

By joining us, you will become a crucial part of our story.

The Logistics

Our international headquarters is located in Kansas City, Mo. It’s a city known for its friendly and welcoming qualities—but did you know about its fantastic food, art, music, sports and events? These secret gems are why many choose to call this place home. And if you like your money to go a little further, it helps that the cost of living is lower than in many other cities.¹

But Kansas City is not the only place we’ve put down roots. We have locations around the globe that offer flexible schedules for our employees.
