THE TEAM

The Strategy and Operations Team is a hub for all things Labs – we know what’s happening when, who is involved, and why.  We look beyond today to bring new ideas, products, and processes to Capital One that will elevate our customers, each other, Labs, Capital One, and the entire financial industry.  We’re the ultimate problem solvers because we solve for both the short term need and identify patterns to optimize for the long term. This is hard work, and while it’s not always glamorous, it’s incredibly rewarding because we get to touch just about everything in Labs. To learn more, follow us on Twitter @capitalonelabs.

YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES

The Product Operations team is responsible for enabling the Labs to deliver concepts and products to market at warp speed.  Some days, that may mean coaching our teams to utilize lean start-up best practices or helping to navigate the risk and regulatory frameworks, others, it might mean strategizing about tech deployments or coordinating resources.  Along the way, you’ll translate the work you do into reusable building blocks that emphasize excellence, speed to market, and rapid testing and learning cycles.

Every day, you’ll come in and ask yourself, “What am I doing today that’s helping the Labs to work smarter and faster?”

Answering that question will require more than just being quick on your feet.  It will also require knowing how to help Labs plug in with broader enterprise practices and approaches, and coordinating conversations across business and organizational lines.  You’ll regularly interface with product managers, designers, engineers, data scientists, senior leaders, and risk & regulatory groups to help monitor product progress and health, and drive towards outcomes.
