Master Software Engineer - Data Engineering

We're currently hiring for cross-functional data engineering positions within the Monsoon team at Capital One. Based out of downtown Oakland and SOMA, these positions have the potential to allow you to work from multiple offices on either side of the Bay.

Our team DNA is a startup, but we have enterprise support. You won't just be executing a mile-long backlog of tickets – you'll be coming up with new ways to make Capital One successful.

Who you'll be joining:

Capital One is a technology company that just happens to be focused on banking. Many of our banking and card users have never seen a Capital One branch, let alone been inside one. That is the strength and seriousness with which we take our digital presence. This may seem like a bold claim, but look at the companies that now make up the greater Bay Area Capital One Team:

Monsoon ( was also acquired in 2015, and is the group that’s posting this job opportunity.

Our commitment to equality:

We are outspoken about inclusion, diversity, and conversations about how we as a company, an industry, and individuals can do better. If that speaks to you, we'd like to speak with you. We work hard to shatter glass ceilings for all our employees. The Monsoon team works in a gorgeous 1910 bank building; the only ceiling we want is the ornate fresco we work under.

What you’ll work on:

  • Scaling a real-time data pipeline in AWS
  • Leveraging real-time data for machine learning
  • Build a batch pipeline using S3, EMR, and Scala
  • Writing performant Scala applications, and contributing them back to open source
  • Consulting with experts in big data and data science, both within the company and with our contracted consultants

Basic Qualifications:

  • Bachelor's degree or military experience
  • At least 4 years’ experience in software development

Preferred Qualifications:

  • 2 years experience with Scala or Python
  • 2 years experience building production applications in AWS

At this time, Capital One will not sponsor a new applicant for employment authorization for this position.
