Imagine working at an innovative tech company, writing mostly greenfield projects with technologies like Angular 2, Node, and Scala on AWS. Now imagine that company has the stability, work/life balance, and budget of a large bank. That's Capital One.

We're currently hiring for multiple positions based out of downtown Oakland. You won't just be executing a mile-long backlog of tickets – you'll be coming up with new ideas and finding new ways to make Capital One successful, including some of our most beloved and trafficked digital properties.

Anyone can promise a position where you'll write "beautiful code" - we're offering one where millions of users will be using that code.

What you'll work on:

  • Lead the overall Site teams and stakeholder ecosystem. The core Site teams are fully co-located in the same office. The stakeholders and internal customers are dozens of sprint teams spread across the country in Texas, New York, and Virginia. Engaging and leading this ecosystem is the key to success in this role.
  • Lead the platform teams responsible for the static site generator and cloud deployment tools that powers CapitalOne.com. You will be on the core team building out a platform that provides the SEO benefits of a server-driven site with all the benefits of a single page web application. It's written with Angular 2 and Node and is deployed through the cloud. This team supports dozens of extended teams that build on the platform.
  • Lead the enterprise A/B testing and UX personalization teams. These Python and Scala based engineering teams are building out the next generation capabilities for delivering optimized, data-driven personalized experiences for our customers.
  • Lead the Home Page UX teams to deliver increased profitability to the company. This team directly manages the content and experience of the CapitalOne.com home page. The team's efforts directly contribute to tens of millions of dollars to the bottom line of the company every year.
  • Make key technical decisions affecting hundreds of internal customers and millions of public customers.

Who you'll be joining:

Capital One is a technology company that just happens to be focused on banking. Many of our banking and card users have never seen a Capital One branch, let alone been inside one. That is the strength and seriousness with which we take our digital presence. This may seem like a bold claim, but look at the companies that now make up the greater Bay Area Capital One Team:
