There’s a difference between having a job and making a difference.

American Express has been making a difference in people’s lives for over 160 years, backing them in moments big and small, granting access, tools, and resources to take on their biggest challenges and reap the greatest rewards.

We’ve also made a difference in the lives of our people, providing a culture of learning and collaboration, and helping them with what they need to succeed and thrive. We have their backs as they grow their skills, conquer new challenges, or even take time to spend with their family or community. And when they’re ready to take on a new career path, we’re right there with them, giving them the guidance and momentum into the best future they envision.

Because we believe that the best way to back our customers is to back our people.

The powerful backing of American Express.

Don’t make a difference without it.

Don’t live life without it.

We are a R&D and solution engineering team under EIMP (Enterprise Information Management Platforms).  We invest most of our time playing (i.e. developing POCs and prototypes) with the latest and greatest data technologies (e.g. Couchbase, Cassandra, Postgres, Cloud native DB technologies, Apache Ignite, Apache Geode, Apache Kafka, Apache Spark, ElasticSearch, Neo4J, etc) to become experts on them, so that we are knowledgeable enough to define enterprise-level adoption strategy and identify good use cases for these disruptive technologies in Amex.  We also help app teams across Amex to design and implement complex database solutions leveraging these technologies.


We are looking for innovative and self-driven engineers to join us, so we can do more cool stuff together.  We promise that you will never be bored on our team.
