Do you want to work for a technology company that writes its own code, develops its own software, and builds its own products? We experiment and innovate leveraging the latest technologies, engineer breakthrough customer experiences, and bring simplicity and humanity to banking. We make a difference for 65 million customers.

At Capital One, you'll be part of a big group of makers, breakers, doers and disruptors, who love to solve real problems and meet real customer needs. Capital One started as an information strategy company that specialized in credit cards, and we have become one of the most impactful and disruptive players in the industry. We have grown to see ourselves as a technology company in consumer finance, with great opportunities for software engineers who want to build innovative applications to give users smarter ways to save, transact, borrow and invest their money, as we seek to disrupt the industry again.

We are looking for bright, driven, and talented individuals to join our team of passionate and innovative software engineers. In this role, you’ll use your experience with Python/Java/Scala, Fast Data, Big Data, Streaming and Cloud technologies to build our next generation of Data capabilities.

The Job:

Your interests:
Fearless. Big, undefined problems and petabytes don't frighten you. You can work at a tiny crack until you've broken open the whole nut.

You have a bias toward action, you try things, and sometimes you fail. Expect to tell us what you’ve shipped and what’s flopped.

You are passionate about finding refined solutions to complex DevOps challenges and helping the entire team meet its commitments.

You yearn to be a part of cutting edge, high profile projects and are motivated by delivering world-class solutions on an aggressive schedule.

You love learning new technologies and mentoring more junior developers.

Humor and fun are a natural part of your flow.
