About Us

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.

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.

What does belonging mean at Capital One?

Diversity is more than ethnicities, genders, disabilities… it’s about recognising that everyone has a unique perspective. We must leverage the strength of this diversity to create winning products and experiences for our customers. We call this Powered by Perspective. We asked our associates what belonging means to them…

What you’ll do

Life in our software academy is all about learning how to build great systems, languages, tools and frameworks, deliver quality code and create 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, and Cloud-hosted microservices.

You can expect to experience 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 the development and deployment of our software seamless. 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 so we can ensure our systems are always fully protected.

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 operate on an omnichannel servicing strategy. 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.
