Job Description

Wells Fargo Enterprise Information Technology

Technology at Wells Fargo is at the heart of what enables us to satisfy our customers financial needs and help them succeed financially. The Enterprise Information Technology (EIT) team leads technology for one of the highest market cap financial services institutions in the world, helping 76.6 million customers conduct an average of 95 million transactions each day, helping more end-customers every day both in the United States and across the globe than any other division in our company.

The EIT team helps customers directly every time they do business with the company, delivering a true One Wells Fargo experience and ensuring their security, regardless of channel. EIT also helps customers by remaining trusted partners working with all lines of business to develop and deliver value-added products and services. To do this, EIT draws on the talents and motivation of thousands of technology team members across the enterprise. Altogether, EIT manages worldwide technology for more than 8,700 stores and 12,500 ATMs larger than Starbucks and The Gap combined.

Within EIT, the Enterprise Business Technology (EBT) group offers technology and services for a number of horizontal, enterprise-wide needs. This includes application development, platform and architecture services for internal enterprise functions (e.g., Risk, Finance, HR, and Marketing) and for our internal IT for IT needs. In addition, this group provides an array of end-user computing and help desk functions for all internal team members to enable our team member experience and productivity.


You will have senior level responsibility for all technology solutions that support Risk, Finance, Legal and Audit data strategy and reporting technologies at Wells Fargo. This is a newly created role to address mission critical multi-year regulatory commitments in the Risk and Finance space. In addition you will drive the development of synergies and efficiencies with the data and reporting capabilities across our Risk, Finance, Legal and Audit organizations. You will also ensure that our risk and finance data strategies are in alignment with the company wide Blueprint strategy by partnering closely with the Enterprise Core Services technology teams.

Risk, Compliance, Finance, Audit and Legal technology portfolios have evolved over several years and in the recent past have grown in size due to the extraordinary increase in regulatory scrutiny of these functions. So far these functions have been run in silos and there is a need to identify and consolidate common capabilities across these functions to drive consistency, eliminate redundancy and simplify the technology landscape in a way that is aligned with the broader ECIO operating model.

This role will be responsible for driving the broader ECIO strategies in the following technology capabilities across Risk, Compliance, Finance, Audit and Legal businesses.
