Perfection not required
Excited about this role, but not sure if you meet 100% of the criteria? Employers would still love to hear from you.

Located in the heart of Glasgow City Centre, our Glasgow Technology Centre is one of 2 strategic, pure technology hubs globally at JP Morgan. Our opportunities offer the chance to work on interesting challenges and projects, with what are truly cutting-edge technologies.

The Wholesale Payments Regulatory Reporting organization supports over 2,000 regulatory reports and solutions globally as mandated by 50+ regulatory agencies in support of the changing payments processing and product offering landscape. Data accuracy and completeness coupled with platform flexibility aligned with rapidly changing market/regulatory conditions is essential to maintain the firm’s reputation, support business expansion and avoid fines/sanctions across the global regulatory space. Growing regulatory scrutiny and mandates are aligned with cyber controls that address the evolving payment processing landscape, dictating a wider set of data attributes, a deeper set of party data and growing real-time/on-demand views of JPMC’s transaction data. From a submission standpoint, no-touch report generation is now both an expectation from regulatory agencies as well as a must in order to support growing volumes and operational accuracy.

In order to support the global agenda, Wholesale Payments Regulatory Reporting technology is in midst of a multi-year transformation journey to leverage strategic global data repositories, build report formats utilizing the firm’s target Regulatory Reporting Engine platform and increase automation through use of latest technology stack (including Cloud adoption) to support growing needs and demands from regulators including customized API frameworks.
