Sr. Data Analyst Manager

Senior Manager, Data Analytics

At Capital One, data is at the center of everything we do. When we were a tiny startup we disrupted the credit card industry by individually personalizing every credit card offer using statistical modeling and the relational database, cutting edge technology in 1988! Fast-forward a few years, and that little innovation and our passion for data has skyrocketed us to a Fortune 200 company and a leader in the world of data-driven decision-making.

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 put the customer first, and want to use their data skills to make a difference.

As a Senior Manager within Enterprise Model Risk, Analytics, and Data (EMRAD), you will partner cross-functionally with teams throughout the company to validate business impacting analytical tools. You will enhance your technical and analytical skills, while also working with leaders to influence business strategies. With a network of hundreds of Data Analysts, Quants, and Data Scientists, challenging projects with an eye on the bottom line and a focus on work/life balance, we’ve created a dynamic environment with plenty of room for you to learn, grow, and realize your full potential.

On a given day you will be:

  • Refining a new Enterprise-wide analytical tools validation framework
  • Planning and executing validation projects
  • Assessing the quality and risk of analytical tool methodologies across Capital One, and the nature of tools usage within those processes
  • Validating tools at tool initiation and during the annual inventory update
  • Ensuring timely and accurate reporting of all EUCs in scope
  • Understanding technical issues in analytical tools and assessing tools risks and opportunities
  • Independently researching, identifying, and prototyping industry best practices for emerging analytical tools
  • Communicating results clearly and concisely both verbally and through written communications via validation reports and presentations
  • Leveraging education, colleagues and training opportunities to develop solutions to business problems
  • Coaching and mentoring junior staff

An ideal candidate will possess strong problem solving and conceptual thinking abilities in addition to communication, interpersonal and leadership skills. This position will be in a fast-paced and entrepreneurial environment where you will be handling multiple concurrent projects while working independently and in teams.
