Scala Engineer

201 Third Street (61049), United States of America, San Francisco, California

At Capital One, we're building a leading information-based technology company. Still founder-led by Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Richard Fairbank, Capital One is on a mission to help our customers succeed by bringing ingenuity, simplicity, and humanity to banking. We measure our efforts by the success our customers enjoy and the advocacy they exhibit. We are succeeding because they are succeeding.

Guided by our shared values, we thrive in an environment where collaboration and openness are valued. We believe that innovation is powered by perspective and that teamwork and respect for each other lead to superior results. We elevate each other and obsess about doing the right thing. Our associates serve with humility and a deep respect for their responsibility in helping our customers achieve their goals and realize their dreams. Together, we are on a quest to change banking for good.

Scala Engineer

As our customers go about their daily lives, they generate a river of data. It flows 24 hours a day, touches all lines of business and represents a tremendous opportunity for Capital One. By accessing that data, we can develop real-time decision systems that provide anyone at Capital One the resources and infrastructure they need to innovate with our data.

Our team is chartered to redefine how everyone at Capital One produces and consumes data. We are using open source and cutting-edge data streaming technologies while building custom experiences that humanize the creation and consumption of data. We are looking for Scala engineers to join this team - but in reality, we just want to work with solid coders who care about functional programming.

As a Scala engineer working on the data streaming platform, you will be on point for:

  • Writing code for applications that makeup our complex event processing framework, as well as writing automation for our cloud infrastructure - we write Scala and Go, and build on AWS
  • Designing and architecting new application infrastructure as our product expands. We are building a brand new platform - this is 'ground floor', 'greenfield' work.
  • Building self-healing systems by writing anomaly detection on top of monitoring data in Influx, Cloudwatch, ES logs
  • The resiliency of our AWS infrastructure, including Spark Streaming on EMR, HashiCorp Nomad on EC2, and multiple managed services such as ElastiCache, RDS, ElasticSearch, DynamoDB


What you should bring to the table:
  • Respect for others' ideas and willingness to share knowledge
  • Experience in functional programming
  • A solid foundation in testing - building a reliable continuous integration pipeline shouldn't be new


Basic Qualifications:
  • Bachelor's Degree or military experience.
  • At least 3 years of experience in software engineering
  • At Least 1 year of experience in functional programming


Preferred Qualifications:
  • 1+ year of experience in Scala, Go, AWS, HashiCorp Nomad, Terraform, Kubernetes
  • 1+ year of experience in Site Reliability Engineering/Dev Ops/Cloud Infrastructure

At this time, Capital One will not sponsor a new applicant for employment authorization for this position.
