Since graduating university with a degree in Computer Science and starting my career, I have strived to not only meet the goals of my role, but also to put myself forward as an advocate for the recruitment and development of new talent. I joined J.P. Morgan in 2016 as a graduate, and have held two roles within the firm.

In my current day to day role, I work on Athena, which is a next generation risk, pricing, and trade management platform within the Investment Bank. Since joining the team, I have enjoyed the challenges of learning both the financial sector, and a large sophisticated system. In a former role, I was responsible for gathering user feedback, developing and testing the platform, meaning I have full experience of the development process. Athena has also given me insights into liaising with clients outside of the technology sector, allowing me to develop new business oriented skills. In my time at the firm I have also largely been one of only a handful of female developers on my teams – therefore I always enjoy taking the opportunity to talk to newer members of the firm about my role and the opportunities the firm has for young women to advance and have fulfilling and meaningful jobs in highly skilled teams.

Previous to working in Athena, I was part of the Redwing team, which developed a messaging application to handle client data. In my time on this project, I dealt with client requirements and delivering changes at a rapid pace.
