Your potential. Your opportunity.


Do you want your voice heard and your actions to count?
Discover your opportunity with Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG), the 5th largest financial group in the world (as ranked by S&P Global, April 2018). In the Americas, we’re 14,000 colleagues, striving to make a difference for every client, organization, and community we serve. We stand for our values, developing positive relationships built on integrity and respect. It’s part of our culture to put people first, listen to new and diverse ideas and collaborate toward greater innovation, speed and agility. We’re a team that accepts responsibility for the future by asking the tough questions and owning the solutions. Join MUFG and be empowered to make your voice heard and your actions count.

We are looking for a hands-on Senior Software Development Engineer in Test (SDET) with a passion for test automation. As a MUFG SDET, you will build and utilize cutting-edge testing tools in an agile environment to plan, conduct and lead our testing initiatives. If you are looking for an outsized impact driving both a technical and cultural (mindset, processes, policies) shift at a large organization in the throes of a deep and comprehensive digital transformation, we want to talk to you.

You will have the opportunity to work alongside, learn from and collaborate with best in class engineers in the high-octane office of technology. You will collaborate in an enterprise service architecture and help us build out the next generation hybrid consumer facing apps. Sharing your passion and expertise with our growing team, helping/mentoring/leading the team members to elevate their skills while championing the necessary cultural shifts required at an organizational level and integrating the latest technologies for continued advancement will be of particular import.

The team values well-architected, high-quality, and stable applications that provide re-usable functionality allowing for velocity at scale. You will be a pioneering test automation engineer with opportunity to get in at the ground level, filling substantial gaps to define how we think about testing/quality across our entire portfolio of agile squads.

You must love to code, understand/hunger for/drive good clean design principles, and work well in a sometimes-messy organizational environment created by the seismic change MUFG is undergoing. Where others might be defeated by systematic challenges, you are energized by them, refusing to stop until a solution is found.

If you want to have an impact on a scale of this magnitude, look no farther.

As a Software Engineer at MUFG, you will help get banking out of our customers’ way, putting our customers’ money to work where they want it, when they want it, without worrying about it. You’ll help us roll out these capabilities the “FinTech” way, using system reliability engineering (SRE) practices and open source software (OSS) for better developer velocity and platform resilience. You’ll work with our business partners to architect, design and implement solutions, and your expertise in detailed technical design and development of applications using emerging technology platforms will help lead MUFG towards true technology transformation.
