At Capital One, we’re building a leading information-based technology company. 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.
Guided by our shared values, we thrive in an environment where collaboration and openness are valued. 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. Our associates serve with humility and a deep respect for their responsibility in helping our customers achieve their goals and realize their dreams. Together, we are on a quest to change banking for good.
Software Development Engineer (API)
Come and help us build out our third-party integration platform using the latest service-based technologies delivered using Amazon Cloud. You’d join an existing team to help engineer our growing third-party platform.
We’re looking for passionate, creative engineers who are excited about solving new problems to create an industry leading experience. With a focus on back-end technologies and comfort working with infrastructure, you will have a versatile background which includes inspiring others. You’ll be experience, driven engineer and able to work in an agile way across the business. Reporting to the team’s engineering manager you’ll share responsibility for your team’s architecture, mentoring team members and leading delivery.
Your influence will grow beyond your own team as you look to advise on target architecture and cloud adoption.
Although we’re a large enterprise we do our best to be agile and enable our engineers to get things done. So, you’ll get the latest tech and the right tools to make an impact. We relish individuals willing to put themselves out there and go the extra mile, and so we’ll go the extra mile for you too with flexible working and a fun, casual workplace. As well as an attractive bonus, pension scheme and private medical insurance, you can look forward to a host of other benefits too.
We expect to see:
* Solid programming skills in your language of choice (not necessarily ours) and a track record of getting stuff done
* Working collaboratively, able to communicate effectively and commitment to be part of a successful team
We like to see (but not required):
* Experience in our stack (Java/SpringBoot)
* Examples of working with, and developing against, AWS architecture
* Experience of working with high availability RESTful APIs and other HTTP services
