JPMorgan Chase, the biggest bank in the country, is making a play to be the industry’s AI leader. The bank had, by far, the most visa worker hires in our study, 237, with Citibank at a distant second with 52 hires. A report by Evident AI ranked the bank at the top of its AI Innovation list for banks, noting that it produced 45% of all AI research produced by banks in 2023. AI research at JPMorgan is led by Manuela Veloso, who leads a team of academics who look at the potential of AI across seven main areas, from data management to employee empowerment.

The practical application of AI at JPM is spearheaded by the bank’s recently formed Data and Analytics organization. JPMorgan’s firmwide chief data and analytics officer, Teresa Heitsenrether, leads that team, which consists of AI, machine learning, and data executives from across the bank. The firm’s prodigious hiring of data science and AI roles last year included applications of 37 data science associates and 37 applied AI & machine learning associates. In total, the firm sought to hire 95 employees on a visa with AI in their title with a top salary of $275,000 for a data scientist/executive director position. The lowest salary was $90,000, which is more than $30,000 above the average US salary.

Recent job listings show the firm is currently hiring for similar roles at similar salaries. An applied AI/ML lead position comes with a salary range of $147,250 to $260,000, compared to the $163,800 to $235,000 offered to the sixteen vice presidents of applied AI ML leads they sought in 2023.
