Senior Data Engineer

We may be a bank, but we think and operate like a tech company. A tech company that writes its own code, develops its own software, and builds its own products. A tech company that experiments and innovates with the latest technologies, engineers’ breakthrough customer experiences, and brings simplicity and humanity to banking.

We began life in 1988 by harnessing the power of big data to create customized products that disrupted the credit card industry.  Now we are doubling down on that big data strategy, and we are looking for great data engineers to join us.

You'll have the opportunity to mentor other engineers and develop your technical knowledge and skills to keep your mind and our business on the cutting edge of technology.  At Capital One, we have seas of big data and rivers of fast data.  To tame it all we're using tools like Spark, Scala, Akka, Cassandra, Accumulo, HBase, Hadoop, HDFS, AVRO, MongoDB, and Mesos and we're on the look-out for anything else that will help us.
