The Enterprise team has the unique ability to address the comprehensive needs of our broad customer base, creating products and experiences that are simple, relevant and delightful to all.

We’re looking for a talented visual designer to join our team in creating next-generation web experiences for Capitalone.com.

Your designs will also contribute to a new cutting-edge design language that will define and drive change across the larger design organization.

You are:

• A master craftsman. You dream about color, typography, iconography and animation everyday.

You are proficient using tools like Sketch and Photoshop, and can efficiently use your skillset to develop new designs within existing and new visual systems and design languages.

• Have a can-do attitude. You’re a pro-active team player who is eager and excited about producing awesome work. No task is too small or large for you. You are able to work alone or with partners to problem solve and develop clear action and execution plans for a task, informing your manager of progress appropriately.

• A successful juggler. You don’t get overwhelmed or flustered easily. You’re able to keep track of multi-projects at once, manage you time efficiently and appropriately and communicate scheduling with your manager and the broader team.

• A storyteller. You’re able to develop clear and persuasive stories about your work that you share with a wide range of audiences, including business partners and stakeholders.

• Detail Oriented. You impress your teammates with the ability to pick out small nuances that no one else seems to notice. You’re proud that your production files are always pixel perfect and you’ve thought through every permutation of your designs, making the development process smooth sailing.

• Flexible. You know that projects can adjust at the drop of a hat, you are adaptable and welcome change.
