Senior Manager of Data Science, Digital

Capital One is seeking a Data Scientist for an exciting new initiative to develop multichannel intelligent assistants that provide an outstanding experience for our customers.  You will work closely with our product, design, and engineering teams to develop strategies for leveraging rich data to bring greater intelligence and humanity to our conversational AI.

On any given day you’ll be:

-Leveraging open source tools to manage large scale customer data to enable artificial intelligence for chatbots and virtual assistants
-Creating a wide variety of machine learning models for conversational AI applications
-Writing software to clean and investigate large, messy data sets of numerical and textual data
-Contributing to a research playground to build out a platform to support intelligent chatbots and virtual assistants

-Investigating the impact of new technologies on the future of banking and the financial world of tomorrow

 The Ideal Candidate will be…

-Curious. You ask why, you explore, you're not afraid to blurt out your disruptive idea. You probably know Python, Scala, or R and you’re constantly exploring new open source tools.

-Wrangler. You know how to programmatically extract data from a database and an API, bring it through a transformation or two, and model it into human-readable form (ROC curve, map, d3 visualization, Tableau, etc.).

-Creative. Big, undefined problems and petabytes of data don't frighten you. You’re used to working with abstract data, and you love discovering new narratives in unmined territories.

Twenty-five years after Capital One was started it’s still led by its founder. Be ready to join a community of the smartest folks you’ve ever met, who see the customer first, and want to use their data skills to make a difference.
