J.P. Morgans Corporate & Investment Bank (CIB) is a global leader across banking, markets and investor services. The worlds most important corporations, governments and institutions entrust us with their business in more than 100 countries. With $18 trillion of assets under custody and $393 billion in deposits, the Corporate & Investment Bank provides strategic advice, raises capital, manages risk and extends liquidity in markets around the world.
CIB has a strong belief that the future of our infrastructure is on cloud. As part of this vision it has already begun building the bridge to access public cloud in addition to a private cloud for specific workflows. Significant engineering challenges remain in 1) driving the architecture of our public cloud and enabling the best possible developer experience allowing teams to focus on building world class financial applications 2) assisting our developers migrate existing to the cloud and build new applications in a cloud native way.
To assist in both these challenges CIB has established a Cloud Engineering function with responsibility for leading these architecture activities in close partnership with the developer community. Within this small organization we require a number of experienced people to be our CIB Cloud Engineers. This is a critical role and will lead to significant transformation across the CIB.
The role of the Cloud Engineer is to work with the developer community to enable applications to migrate to the cloud. This includes interactions throughout the migration, starting with cloud suitability and business case, design, and all the way through to implementation.
Success for this role is defined by a simple criteria: what business value did we enable via cloud adoption, and did we advance the quality/stability/control of our environment and the developer efficiency.
Ensure alignment of cloud adoptions with the value propositions and our capabilities, i.e. are we migrating the right applications/workloads at the right time to maximize benefits
Work with application lead engineers to solve the problem of how to migrate existing applications to cloud (make cloud friendly), and for new applications how to design them directly onto the cloud
Balance engineering factors and business value and time horizons
Work on design with team, and crisply and quickly articulate architecture for other stakeholders
Identify missing cloud features and any other constraints and work to get them enabled/built
Design solutions to meet application control requirements
Assist in designing workflow and developer SDLC/automation to gain the most from cloud
Support and transfer cloud engineering expertise to developers
