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 enable us to deliver great customer experiences. This is your opportunity to get a flavour of what sets us apart.

What you’ll do

You’ll hone your skills in everything from APIs to mobile, big data and cyber security – basically, you’ll get a masterclass in software engineering and gain insights into how it enables us to support our customers. You might build solutions in the Cloud using Open Source technologies with a view to reimagining our business. Or you could learn how automated testing provides the quality that allows us to move at speed.

After a year with us, you can expect to have acquired experience across a couple of teams, delivered a number of experiences for our customers, as well as having developed great context around how software engineering works in industry. On top of your technical expertise you'll also have had great experience working with experts up to Director level through collaborative design and the features you build.

What you’ll need

You don’t need to be on a Computer Science degree course, but you’ll need to be able to code in any language. We don’t expect you to be an accomplished developer – just enthusiastic and a quick learner.
