Software Academy Graduate Programme
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.
Tech your career to the next level
If you think Capital One is just a credit card provider, think again. In many ways, we're as much a technology business as a finance company.
We pioneered the use of predictive modelling in this industry, and today we still look at credit the way tech companies look at everything – with a view to changing the way people live. That’s how we make finance more human.
Which also means you’ll find Capital One an inspiring place to launch your career. We’re an award-winning employer because we encourage freedom and creativity.
What are Software Engineers at Capital One?
Our Software Engineers develop solutions that define the way we work and what we do. Put simply, they create and use the technologies that help us to find the right kind of credit for every customer.
What you’ll do
Life in our software academy is all about learning how to build great systems, languages, tools and frameworks. It’s about delivering quality code and creating meaningful experiences for our customers through the power of technology.
You can expect to learn about Quality Engineering too, building frameworks to automate our quality checks. And as part of our Development Tools team, you’ll create the tools that make our software seamless – during and after creation.
We’ll also look to you to support our drive to AWS as part of our Infrastructure Engineering teams. And in Cyber, you’ll make sure our systems are watertight – safe and secure.
What you’ll need
You'll need baseline coding skills in any language, but you don't necessarily need a background in Computer Science. You'll get to experience lots of different tech here because we work across multiple channels to do best by our customers.
You'll work closely with a mentor to help you master each of the technologies and we’ll make sure you have all the training you need to become a great Software Engineer.
Capital One is committed to diversity in the workplace.
