McLean 1 (19050), United States of America, McLean, Virginia

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.

Senior Software Engineer - Product Engineering Group (PEG)

As a team, we come to work every day looking to build digital experiences that are authentic and bold. We'll improve, iterate and reimagine current digital platforms as we sharpen and create the next generation of our services. Our team is growing and we're looking for engineers who lead by doing, have a passion for solving problems and who exude professionalism every day.

At Capital One, we are rethinking our approach to banking, core banking systems, and core banking processing. In an increasingly real-time world, building modern, flexible core technology is critical to enable the banking platform of the future. Nothing is off limits as we explore new approaches and rapidly iterate to test and learn our way to a modern core banking environment. Unusual in the banking world, our engineers are empowered and encouraged to explore ideas in the cloud as we migrate and build our new core technology stacks. We operate in small, delivery driven Agile teams and use the best industry tools to work and collaborate.
