Job Description

JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) is a leading global financial services firm with assets of $2.6 trillion and operations worldwide. The firm is a leader in investment banking, financial services for consumers and small business, commercial banking, financial transaction processing, and asset management. A component of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, JPMorgan Chase & Co. serves millions of consumers in the United States and many of the world's most prominent corporate, institutional and government clients under its J.P. Morgan and Chase brands. Information about JPMorgan Chase & Co. is available at http://www.jpmorganchase.com/.  

The Cybersecurity organization within JPMorgan Chase & Co. provides security services to all lines of business (LOB) across JPMC. The objective of Cybersecurity is to balance both business alignment and the centralized delivery of core products and services including Security Standards, Monitoring & Protection, Assurance & Awareness, and Security Operations. Cybersecurity is designed to address the JPMC global security needs across all LOBs and the demand to leverage economies of scale across the firm.

The Cybersecurity Enterprise Architecture Team translates security requirements into system qualities (e.g., tenets) and then into repeatable design strategies and patterns. The Team designs architectural models of solutions and describes how those solutions integrate into the broader technical infrastructure of the firm. In partnership with development teams, the Cybersecurity Enterprise Architecture Team drives architecture standards into delivered solutions.
We are seeking a Cloud Security Architect to collaborate across all organizations in JPMC to identify, deliver, and document the required artifacts to enable movement of applications and data to the cloud, including strategy, technical roadmaps, position statements, concepts, and logical specifications. The Cloud Security Architect will be hands-on, directly interacting with the engineering and application development teams and leadership to drive alignment on security requirements, influence decision makers, build relationships, and communicate strategy and architecture to the broader internal community.

The successful candidate will have a detailed understanding of cloud security and cloud infrastructure services, but also possesses significant additional breadth across other disciplines (e.g., enterprise security architecture, compute services, storage, large-scale networking, virtualization, data center, integration architecture (API), orchestration technologies (Openstack/Cisco), systems resiliency, service support, application development lifecycle management (DevOps), and service delivery). The Cloud Security Architect is expected to lead through influence, communicate effectively through clarity of thought and demonstrated understanding of business and technical requirements. The successful candidate will be a strong technologist with pragmatic view and creative mind, and a natural collaborator with line of business security architects, engineers, developers, application owners, service providers, and senior management. 
  •  7-10+ years of increasing responsibility for positioning and delivering Cloud and Internet facing applications with a focus on security
  • Experience with the assessment, implementation, management and documentation of a broad set of information security technologies and processes (e.g., application security, risk management, data protection, encryption, key management, identity and access management, security governance, network security) within a SaaS, IaaS, PaaS, or cloud environment
  • Experience with service-oriented architecture for cloud-based services
  • Experience working with cloud security management / governance tools, cloud access security brokers, cloud services and 3rd party hosted services, and server virtualization products and technologies
  • Solid understanding of the end-to-end information technology (IT) process, including architecture, design & engineering, implementation, and operations
  • Experience performing security design reviews to asses security implications for introduction of new or differing technologies within the environment
  • Ability to provide direction and guidance on architectural use cases and requirements for security related efforts
  • Knowledge of information security standards (e.g., ISO 17799/27002, etc.), rules and regulations related to information security and data protection, and Cloud Security Alliance best practices and guidelines
  • IT security (e.g., CISSP) or Cloud Security-related certifications (e.g., vendor neutral (CCSK, Certified Cloud Professional/Architect, etc.) or Cloud vendor certification (VMware VCP, AWS Certified Solutions Architect, Google, IBM, etc.))
  • Experience integrating security in a fast-paced environment
  • Demonstrated effective and strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Ability to shift from high-level thinking to realistic and pragmatic execution  
  • Willingness and ability to work with teams, including ability to build relationships using an open and respectful communication and collaboration style
