About J.P. Morgan Corporate & Investment Bank

J.P. Morgan

J.P. Morgan’s Corporate & Investment Bank is a global leader across banking, markets and investor services. The world’s most important corporations, governments and institutions entrust us with their business in more than 100 countries. With $24 trillion of assets under custody and $423 billion in deposits, the Corporate & Investment Bank provides strategic advice, raises capital, manages risk and extends liquidity in markets around the world.

Who are we looking for?

The ROAR group within J.P. Morgan CIB Data Science is building infrastructure to support a fundamentally new way of approaching data science problems. We are quite unlike a traditional data science group and, rather than assuming human managers are the best organizing principle, experiment with new techniques for achieving Collective Intelligence as it applied to prediction and real-time decision making. Our flagship project is a novel crowd-sourcing platform to be launched mid 2018.

Why join?

This is an exciting opportunity to join a groundbreaking novel data science project within JP Morgan. Roar Data is an engineering and scientific greenfield initiative requiring careful formulation of statistical, cryptographic and technological problems. Tackling our problems will involve significant trial and error, customer feedback and iteration. In exchange for this significant upfront effort we believe we can deliver dramatic cost savings and greater accuracy driving a dramatic lift across dozens if not hundreds of business lines. In addition, you will collaborate with top tier universities helping us pursue civic applications of the new paradigm we are seeking to prove out. You will be joining highly motivated people pursuing this vision, some of whom have founded companies and sold technology to hedge funds, banks and brokerages.
