J.P. Morgan’s Code for Good Hackathon

The Code for Good hackathon gives you the chance to put your coding skills towards doing good for nonprofit organisations. It’s also a great opportunity to see whether a career in financial services technology is for you.

Over the course of 12 hours, you and your team will develop a technology solution for a leading nonprofit organisation. You’ll get to work side by side with our expert JPMorgan technologists, learning from their experience as you creatively solve real-world problems faced by social organisations. You are encouraged to come up with cutting-edge ideas that could make a difference to the people who need it most.

In addition to networking with other aspiring software engineers from other countries, Code for Good is also a chance to meet our recruiting teams and experience what it’s like to work as a software engineer at JPMorgan. Our focus is on providing a welcoming, engaging, and creative environment to support underrepresented genders in tech culture. Anyone who identifies as a marginalised gender including, but not limited to, cisgender women, transgender women, transgender men, non-binary individuals, gender neutral individuals, genderqueer individuals, agender individuals, pangender individuals, or a gender who are otherwise underrepresented in tech may register.

The event will take place virtually. Participants will need to use their own laptops during the event. Further details and instructions will be provided to successful applicants.

Top participants in our Code for Good virtual hackathon may be offered a position in our 2023 Software Engineer Internships.
