Job Description:

JPMorgan Asset & Wealth Management – Full Stack Developer


JPMorgan Asset Management (JPMAM) continues to drive towards best in class data management capabilities to ensure all areas of the business and operations make decisions or report based on a clear understanding of the data they are using and its quality. In parallel technology are overhauling the way they deliver and document data. A model driven service architecture coupled with an innovative data quality framework underpins the target state data architecture and addresses the need for compliance with new firmwide policies and standards for data governance and data quality reporting.


To achieve these objectives we are looking to strengthen the Core Components and Architecture team by recruiting a developer with Metadata knowledge who will report directly to the JPMAM Chief Information Architect and liaise with the Chief data Office (‘CDO’) who are the principle sponsors and consumers of metadata in the JPMAM organization.



As a Full Stack Developer this person will be part of a team that is responsible for implementing metadata driven solutions within Asset Management. This includes data store inventory control, measuring data quality, implementing data retention standards, provision of data sensitivity information to entitlements systems as well as basic data reconciliation and data profiling. The job requires a mixture of data analytical skills with software development using traditional relational database with the possibility of moving to a commercial solution based on triple-store technology. This role should appeal to some one who wants to specialise in Information Architecture and at the same time likes to code and develop using the latest set of technologies and working practices.


Metadata is proving to be the key to effective data management. Capturing metadata (harvesting) is a complex and expensive process that can only be justified if that information can be put to good use. In JPMAM Asset Management metadata and associated utilities are used for a number of business use cases that include;


·         Data inventory oversight to identify cost saving opportunities

·         Support for data retention and disposal rules

·         Data quality analysis, assessment against data validation rules master and stored in data models

·         Business term provenance, for a business term, understand its relationship to the System Of Record and Authoritative Data Store

·         Data flow lineage, for example to attest where data came from on a regulatory report

·         Support of data protection policies, map where highly confidential data is stored and ensure it is protected

·         Reporting against firmwide data standards, policies and procedures

·         Classification of data in support of regulatory requirements


The principle consumers of this information are technology teams and the Chief Data Office. For example the metamodel stores Critical Data Elements as defined by the CDO who assign data validation rules to business terms. These data validation rules are stored as part of the logical and physical data model and are used to measure and report on data quality using the metadata platform.


The full stack developer will be responsible for the design and coding of solutions for the import and presentation of metadata and use that information in support of the business use cases as listed above. They will be required to manage and control all aspects of the Metadata framework from requirements capture through to system design, solution construction and delivery.
