Tech your career to the next level

If you think Capital One is just a credit card provider, think again. In many ways, we're as much a technology business as a finance company.

We pioneered the use of predictive modelling in this industry, and today we still look at credit the way tech companies look at everything – with a view to changing the way people live. That’s how we make finance more human.

Which also means you’ll find Capital One an inspiring place to launch your career. We’re an award-winning employer because we encourage freedom and creativity.

What are Software Engineers at Capital One?

Our Software Engineers develop solutions that define the way we work and what we do. Put simply, they create and use the technologies that help us to find the right kind of credit for every customer.

What you’ll do

Life in our software academy is all about learning how to build great systems, languages, tools and frameworks. It’s about delivering quality code and creating meaningful experiences for our customers through the power of technology.

You’ll work as a Software Engineer across several teams, using the latest JavaScript frameworks for web development, native iOS and Android mobile development, plus Cloud-hosted microservices.

You can expect to learn about Quality Engineering too, building frameworks to automate our quality checks. And as part of our Development Tools team, you’ll create the tools that make our software seamless – during and after creation.

We’ll also look to you to support our drive to AWS as part of our Infrastructure Engineering teams. And in Cyber, you’ll make sure our systems are watertight – safe and secure.

What you’ll need

You'll need baseline coding skills in any language, but you don't necessarily need a background in Computer Science. You'll get to experience lots of different tech here because we work across multiple channels to do best by our customers.

You'll work closely with a mentor to help you master each of the technologies and we’ll make sure you have all the training you need to become a great Software Engineer.
