See job description for details


Our team of engineers builds solutions to the most complex problems. We develop cutting-edge systems and processes that form the core of our key business and enable transactions to move in milliseconds. We provide real-time access to critical deal information and crunch billions of data points each day to inform firm-wide market insights and strategies. Team members have the opportunity to work at the forefront of technology innovation alongside industry leaders and make significant contributions to the field.


Consumer and Commercial Banking brings innovative solutions to traditional banking activities. We are a global team of lenders, investors, risk managers, skilled marketers, web experts and banking specialists. We provide a suite of solutions to help our customers meet their personal financial goals. We make direct investments in, and risk manage, a portfolio of corporate loans and securities. And we help transform distressed communities through investments and loans of private capital.


Digital Finance, a subdivision of CCBD, is composed of the firm's digitally-led consumer businesses which include the global online consumer deposits business and the US online consumer lending business, the firm's first-ever direct-to-consumer platform built from the ground up. Digital Finance combines the strength and heritage of a 147-year-old financial institution with the agility and entrepreneurial spirit of a tech start-up. This unique dynamic allows us to help our customers achieve financial progress through customizable solutions that are grounded in value, transparency and simplicity.


As a Front End Developer you will be working closely with our marketing team and UX designers to build HTML/CSS/JS web experiences which will be A/B tested for effectiveness and impact to our clients. The code you write will reach millions and help redefine the firm. The successful candidate will have a proven track record leading the delivery of web application platforms using his/her knowledge of Java, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript framework/methodologies.

The candidate will get to work with modern technologies, such as HTML5, CSS3, RESTful web services, JavaScript libraries (e.g. JQuery), frameworks (e.g. Backbone or (React/Redux/Webpack) or Angular), and utilize them to build cutting edge software. They should be comfortable working with Agile processes, with an emphasis on writing good quality, easily testable code. They should also be able to collaborate and contribute estimates to the planning process. Knowledge of Consumer Finance is not essential but experience in any of these areas may provide a candidate with some advantage. Clear verbal and written communication skills will be crucial since the candidate must be able to gather requirements as well as influence and gain consensus for their designs with the global technology team.
