The JPMorgan Chase project team will design and deliver an analytics tool that will monitor and evaluate the current task work assignments of 2,200 global JPMC team members. The tool will recommend reassignment of project work between staff to better balance workloads and improve on-time delivery. All student team members will become JPMC 2022 Summer Interns based in Chicago, Il.
JPMorgan has 2,200 back office staff globally organized under 5 divisions. They can be generally categorized into about 20 different skill sets. There is duplication of skills across divisions and between regions (US, Europe, Asia) and thus the opportunity to share and redistribute work depending on staff availability. Currently, managers have limited visibility of the system and do not have access to any tools that support strategic decision-making. Students on the 2022 JPMC team will create a data analytics tool that will support optimal re-allocation of back office staff to project work by managers. The development team will have access to a historical database that indicates allocated, start and completion dates for tasks by individuals. The project will be built on JPMorgan standard tech stack: Java, Kafka, Oracle, React, Tableau, AWS (SageMaker, QuickSight). Students will be supported developing necessary skills across the tech stack.
