Visual Designer

JPMorgan Chase & Co is investing in transforming the future of global banking. Our team is at the forefront of developing innovative offerings that will accelerate traditional and digital banking.

Project Dynamo Cloud will allow us to deliver our product vision in the next decade. We launched Chase UK, and now have plenty of ambitions that will take us far and wide. With the success of Chase UK Banking App we decided to develop a platform that will accelerate our progress towards these goals, while allowing us to leverage synergies across different banking products.

The Dynamo Cloud platform will power our product offering across consumer, private, and commercial banking. We strongly believe if you build something awesome, don’t keep it to yourself. We plan to offer our platform and some of our products as a service, for other financial institutions to quickly and safely launch products themselves.

We know how ambitious this is: Multiple Countries, Products, Regulations, Languages, Currencies, User Types, Cloud Providers, and Tenants with Bring Your Own Encryption! If this sounds like a challenge that excites you, keep reading, there's lots more to it.
