JPMorgan Chase knows that the kind of person who’s into “disruption” and bitcoins and the like is not someone who is dying to work for JP Morgan Chase. But the bank is hoping that those people might consider its offer to pay them lavishly to tell them how to stop being digitally fucked with.

The description is far more interesting: “You care about disruption and have opinions on the future of banking, the payments system, and how to improve upon our existing financial infrastructure. You have an opinion on bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, and you are probably ambivalent about the prospect of working for a large financial institution.”

The bank even sounded almost apologetic about its size: “Sure, we are part of a large financial services firm operating in a highly-regulated environment, and that means we are not as flexible or agile as your average company – let alone a startup.”
