The business is undergoing significant transformation with a significant focus on replacing paper-based processes with rich, online experiences. This is intended to improve the experience for the client as well as efficiency within operations and front-office teams.

In order to support this technology transformation, a key platform – Enterprise Client Data Capture (ECDC) – has been built and is expanding. The purpose of ECDC is to provide a flexible and consistent platform to capture structured data and distribute that data to downstream applications. ECDC is both external and internal facing, and enables collaboration between clients and JPMC staff, as well as collaboration between front office and operations. ECDC incorporate integration with DocuSign, an electronic signature platform used within Wealth Management.

The ECDC platform is built using the latest technologies – cloud native microservices using SpringBoot 2 and Angular 7, on a nosql data platform. This opening is for a full stack developer who is keen to work on all levels in the technology stack from data through to UI.
