Senior Manager of Data Science, Tech College

At Capital One, data is at the center of everything we do. Our goal is simple – bring ingenuity, simplicity, and humanity to an industry ripe for change. Together, we will build one of America’s leading information-based technology companies. 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, engineer’s breakthrough customer experiences, and brings simplicity and humanity to banking. Join us.

We are creating something unique and unprecedented, a re-imagined hub for technology training, as a bold investment in developing our associates and leaders, recruiting top technical and non-technical talent, and continuing to differentiate ourselves in the market. As a Senior Manager, Data Science of the Tech College within the Tech College, you’ll be part of a team responsible for analyzing, designing, and developing highly engaging learning experiences and solutions that will fuel our growth as a Tech company and help our associates develop cutting-edge skills.

If you have a passion for helping others learn and build next-generation skills by creating amazing learning experiences, you may be a fit for our team.  We are looking for a Data Scientist to join our Tech College. As a member of this team, you will work in a rapid and agile environment, and have the opportunity to build technical training curricula from the ground-up. 

 On any given day you’ll be:

-Using Big Data tools (Hadoop, Spark, H2O, AWS) to conduct the analysis of billions of customer transaction records

-Writing software to clean and investigate large, messy data sets of numerical and textual data

-Integrating with external data sources and APIs to discover interesting trends

-Building machine learning models from development through testing and validation to our 30+ million customers in production

-Designing rich data visualizations to communicate complex ideas to customers or company leaders

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

-Creating or curating educational content to help your Capital One peers stay on top of the Data Science tools and techniques.

-Investigating the impact of new technologies on the future of digital 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 people you’ve ever met, who see the customer first, and want to use their data skills to make a difference.
