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 decisioning systems that provide anyone at Capital One the resources and infrastructure they need to innovate on 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 an experienced people manager with an acute attention to detail, project management skills, a strong ownership mentality, a history of hands-on software development experience, and experience supporting a production system.
