Sr Director, Technology Audit

Capital One is seeking an energetic, self-motivated Audit Director to lead and collaborate on information systems audit efforts in our Corporate Audit Services team, with a focus on reviews of enterprise technology control programs, applications, and core infrastructure, as well as emerging technologies (e.g., cloud, APIs), Digital, and cybersecurity. The candidate will also develop influential relationships with business management in various lines of businesses within Capital One. Each audit assignment enables the candidate to demonstrate business, technical and industry knowledge while assessing business risks, identifying key controls, and performing risk-based testing of application and general computer controls. The candidate will work with the other members of the Audit leadership team to establish team imperatives and actively manage implementation and monitoring efforts to achieve those goals.

For this role, an ideal candidate will have: comprehensive understanding of core technology infrastructure, emerging technology, application and project audits; ability to provide assurance in the grey space where the book hasn't been written; demonstrated success establishing and maintaining strong working relationships with all levels of associates, management, and external parties; leadership experience in driving change in one's own function; and an ability to drive budget and performance improvements.

Here's what we're looking for in an ideal teammate:

  • You adapt to change, embrace bold ideas, and are intellectually curious. You like to ask questions and test assumptions.
  • You seek to deepen relationships and shared objectives with your business partners to deliver an elevated value proposition and outstanding business results.
  • You're a firm believer that data will only make you a better Auditor. This part will require looking at some data, so you'll want to ensure that analytics doesn't scare you off.
  • You're a teacher. You have a passion for coaching and investing in the development of your team.
  • Lastly, you create energy and an environment that make it easy to attract, hire, and retain top talent.


As one of the "100 Best Companies to Work For," you can look forward to coming to work every day with a team of people that are committed to excellence and doing the right thing.
