Still founder-led by Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Richard Fairbank, Capital One is on a mission to help our customers succeed by bringing ingenuity, simplicity, and humanity to banking. We measure our efforts by the success our customers enjoy and the advocacy they exhibit. We are succeeding because they are succeeding.

We believe that innovation is powered by perspective and that teamwork and respect for each other lead to superior results. We elevate each other and obsess about doing the right thing.

Lead Software Engineer - Cyber

Threat modeling is the practice of examining software and systems from the design phase forward to identify and eliminate insecure patterns before they manifest in production code. Threat modeling ensures that software and systems continue to evolve securely as new features are added. Capital One aims to fully embed threat modeling across the software delivery lifecycle, ensuring that all Capital One software is measurably secure by design. As part of that initiative, we aim to develop software tools to enable engineers to threat model.

As a lead software engineer working in the Enterprise Threat Modeling team, you will be delivering tools that empower engineers to threat model. These tools aim to capture and track all threat modelling activity across the enterprise, and deliver on our mission to provide meaningful measurements of the quality and value of threat models. The features you will be adding to our tooling ecosystem will aim to drive down the cost of threat modeling to engineering teams, while also driving up the quality and visibility of the threat models that are produced.

You will be working with a diverse team including Threat Modeling Engineers, Data Scientists and Front and Backend software engineers to deliver data-driven tools for discovering and identifying threats in architectures and software designs.

As a lead engineer you will be expected to bring both technical and people leadership expertise to the team. You will be involved in all stages of software delivery, and will be expected to help identify and drive the best architectural patterns for the tools we build. You will be collaborating with the full team, stakeholders and customers to help break down requirements into technical designs and roadmaps. In addition, you will be expected to help shape and grow the team culture, and support team members in their growth and development.
