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. We’re people-first. We value collaboration, curiosity and commitment.

As a Lead Software Engineer - Java at JPMorgan Chase within the Platform Team 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.

Job responsibilities:

  • Co-location is important to us and we are spending 3-4 days a week in the office at this formative stage of the project, but we will review at later phases.
  • A desire to teach others and share knowledge. We aren’t looking for hero developers, more for team players.

  • High standards. Expects personal performance and team performance to be nothing short of the best.
  • Does not cut corners ethically. Earns and maintains trust.

Technologies:

  • We primarily use Jvm based languages ( Java/Kotlin) but we also have parts of the platform that use other languages as needed.
  • We look to use Open source when it makes sense and build ourselves when it doesn't.
  • We are entirely cloud native and want to build a truly multi-cloud solution.
  • We look at each problem independently and pick the right technology to solve it.
  • We aren’t afraid to try new things but we always remember that we are looking to build something to last, and we focus on solving real world problems for real life customers.
