Want to shape tomorrow?

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. 

It all makes this an inspiring place to launch your career. We’re an award-winning employer because we encourage freedom, embrace creativity and offer the chance to take on meaningful work in collaborative teams right from the start. (Plus the high starting salaries and other perks are pretty exciting too...)

What does belonging mean at Capital One?

Diversity is more than ethnicities, genders, disabilities… it’s about recognising that everyone has a unique perspective.

Software Engineers at Capital One

Our Software Engineers create the solutions that define the way we work and what we do – the tech they create helps us to find the right credit for every customer. As part of our Software Academy, you’ll learn how to build great systems, languages, tools and frameworks. That’s going to involve working across several teams, using the latest JavaScript frameworks for web development, native iOS and Android mobile development, plus Cloud-hosted microservices. 

You’ll learn about Quality Engineering, spend time in our Development Tools team, and support our drive to AWS in Infrastructure Engineering. 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, with a background in Computer Science. And because making a positive difference to our customers’ lives means working across multiple channels, we’ll want to see the flexibility and aptitude for learning it takes to master lots of different tech. 

We’re inspiring because we’re inclusive. A gamechanger because we never stop pushing ourselves. Great because of you.
