As a Lead Software Engineer at JPMorgan Chase, you are an integral part of an agile team that works to enhance, build, and deliver trusted market-leading technology products in a secure, stable, and scalable way. As a core technical contributor, you are responsible for conducting critical technology solutions across multiple technical areas within various business functions in support of the firm’s business objectives.

We’re looking for members to fill out our Agile team.  Your focus will be on the newer technologies (cloud, Domain Driven Design, API’s, microservices) with the goal of decomposing a larger service into smaller microservices.  The existing team is a truly diverse, fun mix of experience and skills who currently work extremely well together.   This team solves the tough problems for breakfast!

We just need an experienced lead to put it all together!

Please note that we are describing our ideal candidate here.  We don’t expect you to know everything.  Showing that you can learn something new is almost as valuable as already knowing it.

As a member of our Agile team we look first and foremost for people who are passionate around solving business and technical problems through innovation and engineering practices.  Our team embraces a culture of experimentation and constantly strives for improvement and learning.  You’ll work in a collaborative, trusting, thought-provoking environment—one that encourages diversity of thought and creative solutions that are in the best interests of our customers globally.

  • Develops secure and high-quality production code, and reviews and debugs code written by others
  • Identifies opportunities to eliminate or automate remediation of recurring issues to improve overall operational stability of software applications and systems
  • Leads evaluation sessions with external vendors, startups, and internal teams to drive outcomes-oriented probing of architectural designs, technical credentials, and applicability for use within existing systems and information architecture
  • Leads communities of practice across Software Engineering to drive awareness and use of new and leading-edge technologies
  • Adds to team culture of diversity, equity, inclusion, and respect

Required qualifications, capabilities, and skills

  • Formal training or certification on software engineering concepts and 8+ years applied experience
  • Expertise in Java, Spring Boot, OO-design/implementation, Domain Driven Design, Data management, and relational databases
    • Website development is a plus but not critical
    • J2EE experience is welcome as we remove those components from our system

  • Knowledge of industry-wide technology trends and best practices (let’s use all the fun tools out there!)
  • Mindset of testing while coding (automated)
