Type of opportunity:
If you think Capital One is simply a credit card provider, think again. In many ways, we're more of a technology business than 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, making things simpler and easier for our customers.
As a result, you’ll find Capital One an inspiring place to launch your career. We’re an award-winning employer in part because we encourage freedom and creativity, as well as looking after our people.
