Lead Software Engineer

As part of the Consumer Banking team that's leading the next wave of disruption on a whole new scale, you will play an integral part in advancing Capital One's ecosystem and culture of technical excellence. Your areas of responsibility will range from Application Frameworks, APIs, MicroServices, Distributed Processing, data, devops, ATDD and beyond.

Responsibilities & Expectations:

-Develop scripts and glue code to integrate multiple software components

-A love of DevOps, open-source, self-service tools, and micro-services

-Design and implement application frameworks, APIs, libraries and services that perform at scale using existing and emerging technology platforms

-Automate the provisioning of environments pulling strings with Puppet, cooking up some recipes with Chef, or through Ansible, and the deployment of those environments using containers, like Docker or Rocket: (and for the love of automation, at least have some configuration management tool through some version control)

-Design and develop automation workflows, performing unit tests and conducting reviews to make sure your work is rigorously designed, elegantly coded, and effectively tuned for platform performance, and assessing the overall quality of delivered components

-Strong verbal and written communication skills are necessary due to the dynamic nature of collaborations with customers, vendors, and other engineering team, solving complex business problems together

-We're looking for self-starters, those who can work independently, with and across teams. Establishing smooth running environments is paramount to your success, and happiness

About You:

-Serious technical street cred if you have a robust portfolio on GitHub and/or Open Source contributions of which you are proud to share!

-Discerning. You understand the importance of selecting the right technology tool for the task

-Insatiably Curious. You ask why, you explore, you're not afraid to blurt out your crazy idea. You can work at a tiny crack until you've broken open the whole nut   

-Automator. You know what continuous integration means, and believe automation is the path to happiness. You know how to script and automate anything and everything, from tests to environment provisioning

-Problem Solver. You are a natural problem solver with a curiosity about technology.  Others describe you as a highly creative and curious technologist, one with excellent research skills

-You're not intimidated by challenges, even thriving in an unstructured environment where you're empowered to make a difference. In that context, you will be expected to research and develop cutting-edge technologies, to accomplish your challenge, should you choose to accept

-While a cape is optional, the uniform we're seeking is someone super passionate about their craft, particularly all things eAPI, and hyper-focused on delivering world-class solutions on an aggressive schedule. Is this you? If this is your version of a cape, continue to apply.

Basic Qualifications:
