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 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 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 you’ll do

You’ll hone your skills in within your chosen area – it could be anything from APIs to mobile and big data. We’ll give you a 10-week masterclass in software engineering and you’ll 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.

If you’re in your penultimate year at uni, an internship could help you jump the queue onto one of our graduate programmes – we make our offers in the final week of the programme. Split across Nottingham and London, these 10-week internships will see you taking on real projects and development training. You’ll have a buddy on your team, a programme mentor – and you’ll even get to meet the CEO.

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.
