JOB DESCRIPTION

Out of the successful launch of Chase in 2021, we’re a new team, with a new mission. We’re creating products that solve real world problems and put customers at the center –  all in an environment that nurtures skills and helps you realize your potential. Our team is key to our success. 

As a Data Principal Software Engineer at JPMorgan Chase within the International Consumer Bank, you are the heart of this venture, focused on getting smart ideas into the hands of our customers. You have a curious mindset, thrive in collaborative squads, and are passionate about new technology. By your nature, you are also solution-oriented, commercially savvy and have a head for fintech. You thrive in working in tribes and squads that focus on specific products and projects – and depending on your strengths and interests, you’ll have the opportunity to move between them.

While we’re looking for professional skills, culture is just as important to us. We understand that everyone’s unique – and that diversity of thought, experience and background is what makes a good team, great. By bringing people with different points of view together, we can represent everyone and truly reflect the communities we serve. This way, there’s scope for you to make a huge difference – on us as a company, and on our clients and business partners around the world.
