An Insider's view of JPMorgan Chase

What’s the vibe like in the office?

My favorite thing about JPMorgan Chase is the vast number of problems we solve, and the diversity it takes to do that. Moving money, enabling payments and producing a world class customer experience are just a fraction of what we work on. Because the office is so casual and open, I get to participate in discussions on all of this.

Nick S.

Executive Director, Software Engineering

What projects are you most excited about?

As one of the largest financial institutions in the world, our scope of impact is huge. Knowing that a system we deliver is responsible for things millions do daily such as paying for groceries, withdrawing cash, or getting a loan pushes us toward solutions that scale, which is the most challenging but also the most rewarding part of our projects.

Edwin T.

Executive Director, Site Reliability Engineering

How does the company support your career growth?

JPMorgan has helped me develop as a professional – both as a technologist and as a business leader. I have taken advantage of executive leadership training and development aligned to the firm’s culture of “How We Do Business.” I feel good about working for a firm that invests in its #1 asset – US!

Lupe C.

Executive Director

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Empowerment for Idea generation, problem solving and innovation is best coming from those who do the work. I engage my technologist in high profile work and foster an environment where ideas are welcome. Empowerment of our technologists is the key to success. Teams dig in, innovate and identify ways to create a better client experience.

Dawn T.

Managing Director, Software Engineering

How does the company support your career growth?

Working at JPMC has been a wonderful experience. I love how much JPMorgan Chase cares about its communities by offering support of technologists to local non-profit organizations through social innovation programs. The company also invests in its employees and provides many learning opportunities to us.
