Location:Glasgow City
Job Type:Full Time

Work within an elite team of research engineers dedicated to delivering business critical priorities, using innovative methods, techniques and technologies. Partner with LoB's andengineering teams across the firm to execute long-term projects requiring significant technical research to support JPMC businesses as they grow.


As part of this function exploration of technologies that have potentially huge impact for JPMC (unknown intrinsic value), support business areas, create(build) and/or implement new technologies or provide guidance and associatedusage guard rails. Implement operating model between Applied Research and Innovation to drive change in technology and future capabilities which are transformed into new products, processes, and services via innovation.

Formulate research problems based on JPMC needs and conduct high-qualityresearch. Develop hardware, software and application system prototypes of the proposed solutions. Conduct experiments to evaluate the performance and effectiveness of the solutions. Create proof-of-concept technology demonstrations. Potentially generate creative solutions (patents) and publish research results internally and in some cases where permissible externalevents.

The CTO applied research engineer is primarily responsible for developinginnovative prototypes to demonstrate the business potentials of upcoming technologies. To be successful in this role, one most important requirement isthe innate curiosity for what's new, and a strong ability to learn new technologiesquickly. The individual must possess deep, hands-on technical skills and befamiliar with a wide range of technical themes and development practices. He orshe will contribute as technical subject matter experts to the various AppliedResearch projects (some outlined below), out-of-box thinking and team work isalso critical for this role.


Work within the CTO Research labs unlocking the potential of technicaltrends including;
1. Distributed Ledgers and Block Chains.
2. Game Theory and Quantum Computing.
3. Optimizations in Large Scale Distributed Calculations/computing, edgecomputing & federated learning; IOT.
4. Robotic Process Automation and automation of ML pipelines from ideation toproduction.
5. Scientific computing, underlying storage patterns - how to persist and usehighly dimensional data - GPU/CUDA SQL for instance.
6. Medical science techniques for data privacy, telehealth, VR, precisionmedicine, massive data rendering.
7. Advanced AI tools and techniques.
