As an experienced Technology Leader, you'll be making decisions of a strategic nature that impact our customers, clients, and businesses around the globe. Your expertise in analyzing complex data systems, anticipating problems, and finding ways to mitigate risk, will be key in guiding high performing teams to successfully modernize infrastructure and migrate to the cloud. And while you will be part of a tight-knit team that shares your passion for technology, you'll also gain access the best minds in the business-both as part of the JPMorgan Chase & Co. global technology community, and through our partnerships with some of the most important tech firms in the world.

You will lead a team of Architects and Program/Project Managers whose key responsibilities include:
* Develop and iterate a cloud adoption strategy for CB Technology that covers both adoption and migration to both private and public cloud. Help drive execution and implementation of that strategy.

* Provide a point of aggregation and prioritization for platform feature demand to enable central platform services to effectively forward plan service capacity and provisioning.
* Look wherever possible to adopt the strategy of software driven infrastructure deployments, which enables dynamic creation and configuration of infrastructure as a component part of the SDLC.
* Work directly with application architects and application development teams to design cost-effective, integrated solutions which meet defined business objectives.
* Ensure proper lifecycle management; prioritize and minimize end-of-support technology infrastructure refresh.
* Ensure adherence to target state Data Center standards.
* Lead the creation and maintenance of reference documentation for CB's technology assets, including current state architecture, target architecture, and roadmaps.
* Partner with the broader Architecture and Engineering function to develop cloud migration strategies and build reference architectures, patterns, etc.
* Analyze current implementations for adherence to standards and for optimization opportunities.
* Advise application teams on best practices and fit for purpose, creating designs which follow approved guidelines and align with available, strategic service offerings.
* Bring thought leadership and work collaboratively across CB Technology and the broader firm on innovation, improvement, and efficiency programs.

The role requires a variety of strengths and capabilities, including:
* Advanced knowledge in the following key areas: Infrastructure Architecture (performance, monitoring, capacity, operations), Technical Design (compliance, security), Network Engineering (planning, provisioning), Software Engineering, and Application Support.
* Proven experience in the creation of technical designs to ensure technology interoperability, documentation of existing and proposed infrastructure, and engagement with technical solution providers.
* Significant cloud design experience with Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and/or other cloud technology, with preference for at scale systems.
* Ability to work collaboratively in matrixed teams and develop meaningful relationships to achieve common goals and influence in a large complex organization.
* Strong verbal and written communication skills and ability to present effectively to technical and non-technical audiences.
* Excellent client interfacing skills with the ability to collaborate with peers and engage in detailed technical discussions with engineers at all levels.
* Motivated, self-starter interested in making a difference and acting as a change agent.
* Capacity to think laterally and convey an understanding of the big picture.
