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.

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.


As a Software Engineer, you will work on everything from internal customer-facing web applications using cutting-edge open source frameworks, to highly-available RESTful cloud services, to back-end systems powered by a graph database (Neo4j). You'll bring solid experience in emerging and traditional front-end technologies such as React, Redux, Angular, and Node to name a few. An understanding of mobile development is always welcomed.

You will work with product owners, designers, and other engineers to understand desired application capabilities and testing scenarios and continuously improve software engineering practices. You should be comfortable working in a near-start-up environment, preferably having done this before. As a self-starter, you should be comfortable working in a collaborative team environment.

  • You should be able to demonstrate expertise in various technologies including ES6, TypeScript, React, Redux, and Node.

  • You are a strong team player with a positive attitude

What you’ll do:

  • Collaborate to define and build features for our internal customer facing web and mobile applications.

  • Develop, maintain, and own web services used for development and production environments.

  • Write quality, maintainable code with extensive test coverage in a fast-paced professional software engineering environment.
