Your potential. Your opportunity.


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) with total assets of over $2.9 trillion (106.2 (JPY) as of March 30, 2018) and 150,000 colleagues in more than 50 countries. In the U.S., we’re 13,000 strong, working together to positively impact every customer, organization, and community we serve. We achieve this by delivering on our values, putting people first, fostering long-term relationships built on honesty and mutual understanding, and inspiring the best in each other. This is all part of our inclusive, high-performing culture supported by Total Rewards that include our cash balance pension plan. Join a team that’s working to fulfill its vision to be the world’s most trusted financial group.

We are looking for a hands-on developer who will leverage their energetic and forward-thinking mindset as part of a growing squad of like-minded engineers leveraging agile methods to jump start a wide-ranging digital transformation. 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.

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.

The qualified candidate must have experience with front-end development using HTML5 and popular JavaScript frameworks, including Angular, React, Vue etc. The team values well-architected, high-quality, and stable applications that provide re-usable functionality allowing for velocity at scale. This is your opportunity to get involved in defining best practices, architecture, tooling in a “practice what you preach” approach in a recently approved agile product driven strategy.

This is a role with significant room for growth.

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.
