The Corporate & Investment Bank supports our clients around the world providing strategic advice, raising capital and managing risk.

J.P. Morgan Wholesale Payments is one of the world's largest providers of treasury management and merchant services. Wholesale Payments sits at the intersection of finance and technology and is one of the largest players (processing $6 trillion of payments a day) in an industry undergoing a major transformation.

The Wholesale Payments Data and Analytics team is responsible for defining and executing the multi-year global analytics strategy and roadmap.

New technologies, analytics and business models are emerging with the potential to radically transform financial services. You will be at the leading edge inside the company driving change.

The Data Scientist Associate role is responsible for executing big data analytics projects in response to product innovation for Merchant Services.
