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. This is your opportunity to get a flavour of what sets us apart.

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

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.
