YOU LEAD THE WAY. WE'VE GOT YOUR BACK.

American Express is a globally integrated payments company, providing customers with access to products, insights and experiences that enrich lives and build business success. Our principal products and services are charge and credit card products and travel-related services offered to consumers and businesses around the world.

Our vision is to provide the world's best customer experience every day. We strive to become an essential part of our customers' digital lives by bringing continuous innovation to our existing offerings, while developing new products and services to meet the emerging needs of our customers. In doing so, we employ modern software development practices and tools, using long-range strategic plans and product roadmaps to inform our PIs and product backlogs. We encourage open source contributions, and we’ve created an “inner source” environment to promote the sharing of code internally in support of our technology solutions.

Some of the interesting technical challenges we solve for include

  • Making American Express an essential part of our customers’ digital lives, engaging them wherever they are, whenever they choose, using whatever channel or device they prefer.

  • Creating the most seamless and secure digital experience for customers.

  • Supporting the ongoing growth of the company in the face of intense competition, a shifting regulatory environment and disruptive technological change; contributing to the company’s ability to manage our expense base and optimize investments; and operating as an increasingly agile organization that leverages cutting-edge technologies.

GREAT EXPERIENCES ARE FUELED BY DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION

Diversity

Our differences are what shape the world, and we’re committed to ensuring everyone is seen, heard, and feels like they truly belong. That’s why we’re actively cultivating an inclusive and diverse workplace where every voice is valued, teamwork is rewarded, and different points of view are celebrated. We see diversity of people and experiences as fuel for the creativity and innovation we need to be and deliver our best, for our colleagues, customers and the communities we serve.

Equity

The powerful backing of American Express starts with our people. We take pride in our commitment to providing fair and equitable pay for all colleagues across the globe, through a periodically and independently reviewed pay structure that is equitable, transparent and free from bias.
At American Express, we have a longstanding commitment to pay all colleagues equitably and ensure that our compensation practices are free from bias. To help meet that commitment, we regularly review our compensation practices to verify they support pay equity and transparency.

Additionally, each year, American Express works with an independent third-party to conduct a comprehensive pay equity review. The review assesses pay on a statistical basis and considers a multitude of factors known to impact compensation, including but not limited to, tenure, role, level, geography and performance. In recent years, this review has covered our entire global colleague base. The review process identifies inconsistencies in pay based on gender globally and based on race and ethnicity in the United States. Where necessary and appropriate, salary adjustments are made to address these inconsistencies. In 2019, the goal of our review and subsequent adjustments was to achieve pay parity, meaning differences in pay were statistically insignificant. In 2020, we went even further and made additional investments to achieve 100% pay equity for colleagues across genders globally and across races and ethnicities in the United States. All necessary and appropriate salary adjustments were made to achieve 100% pay equity. The company is committed to this goal going forward.

Inclusion

We offer inclusive leadership training to our colleagues across the globe highlighting the role inclusive leadership plays in advancing our ability to attract, select, develop and retain a diverse workforce. Supported by external research, the training is organized around the four pillars of inclusive leadership: belonging, voice, fairness and growth.

Beyond raising awareness about inclusivity and unconscious bias, the training motivates and educates our colleagues to build inclusive, high-performing teams.

SUPPORT & SAFETY PRACTICES ACROSS OUR CORPORATION

We remain committed to fighting against all forms of discrimination and to creating a welcoming, equitable and inclusive workplace and Company. This is supported by:

  • Mandatory inclusive leadership and unconscious bias trainings for all colleagues

  • A focus on hiring and developing underrepresented colleagues at all levels
    100% pay equity across genders globally and across races and ethnicities in the U.S.

  • American Express Ambition Project that focuses on empowering women throughout the company

HOW LEADERSHIP PRIORITIZES & CELEBRATES YOU

Prioritizing colleague health, safety and well-being
We offer healthcare benefits that provide coverage for colleagues and their families.

Support for the whole you at every stage of your career
We back our colleagues with programs and benefits that support each stage of your career and life. This care is ongoing from the day you start, and fosters your mental, physical, emotional and financial well-being. And, as you progress in your career, you’ll be recognized for your contributions and teamwork– your impact will not go unnoticed.

COMMITTED & INVESTED TO CREATING MORE REPRESENTATION

Our Enterprise Inclusion, Diversity and Business Engagement strategy encompasses six pillars: brand, culture, colleague, customer, business, and community. From a technology perspective, our action plan involves leveraging partnerships with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs); sponsoring and participating in recruiting events with organizations that serve underrepresented groups, such as the National Society of Black Engineers, Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, and AnitaB.org; ensuring diverse slates for all open roles, as well as diverse interview panels to fill those roles; increasing the diversity of our leadership programs; and pairing members of underrepresented groups with executive-level advocates. In these ways – and more – we’re striving to increase diverse representation in tech roles at Amex, continue building a culture of inclusion and belonging, and help ensure that underrepresented voices are heard in the technology industry.
