Around the world, regional markets are creating legislation to drive the easy integration of account data to 3rd party providers such as Mint and Quicken in order to provide high quality digital account management solutions. This team will work across the American Express product teams that are enabling these capabilities to:

  • Build enterprise solutions that integrate American Express with regulatory authorities around the world

  • Contribute to inner source solutions toward automating on boarding and integration activities

  • Build self servicing infrastructures such as enhanced documentation, sample applications, and code samples

  • Work directly with the partners of American Express as they integrate with American Express

This will be a dynamic team meeting ever changing requirements as the Open Banking requirements roll in from markets around the world. Your agility, engagement, and creative solutioning will determine our success.
