Director, Enterprise Architecture

Capital One is seeking a passionate thought leader for our team of senior enterprise architects. Our technology transformation has presented a very exciting opportunity for our architecture practice where we now augment our tried-and-true architecture practice with innovative and, many times, hands-on execution. We are tackling some serious evolutionary moves across all of our businesses; full technology operations in the cloud (Zero Data Center), Micro-Services, Big Data, DevOps, Inner-Sourcing, Open Source adoption, Open Source projects, and much, much more.

As Capital One shifts focus to cloud technologies and delivery automation, our Enterprise Architecture group is called upon for leadership in implementing these new approaches in a safe and sound way. It’s no longer just about target architectures, risk and governance, but ushering in leading edge technologies and approaches to our federated business partners with a clear rationale and lock-tight security.

Our architecture team has subject matter experts in areas from Automation to Software Engineering. We need a leader who understands the overarching impact of these practices and can socialize, partner and negotiate exciting outcomes that won’t land us in the Big House. You will communicate with directors and executives, mentor technical staff and partner with innovative technology vendors.

**The Job:**

• Research and publish implementable architecture patterns and solutions by indulging in hands-on development and prototyping

• Provide technical leadership to product development teams working on complex and intensive problems, basing their solution architectures on industry best practices and software engineering techniques

• Champion our Common Capabilities agenda to bring our Enterprise together on some of our most interesting needs

**Your experience probably includes most of these:**

• Extensive domain knowledge in technology architecture to include mapping to business needs, operational models, security, resiliency and performance

• Product development of metadata, data quality, or data governance solutions

• Deep hands-on expertise in DevOps, Security and Public Cloud technologies and services

• Professional experience in architecting, designing and developing open source or commercial software of enterprise scale

• Leader of technology transformation efforts

• Talent magnet with active involvement in technical recruiting

**How you operate:**

• You strive to unleash the power of data by making accurate and complete information accessible and available to masses of users

• You are passionate about finding refined solutions to complex design challenges

• You use your coding expertise as a way to turn your ideas into tangible solutions and a vehicle for you to prove your point

• You yearn to be a part of cutting edge, high profile projects and are motivated by delivering world-class solutions on an aggressive schedule

• You love being associated with teams of highly talented technologists and helping others build their skills and achieve their career goals

• Humor and fun are a natural part of who you are

• You are not afraid to challenge the status quo

**Basic Qualifications:**

• Bachelor’s degree or military experience

• At least 10 years of IT experience

• At least 8 years of combined experience architecting and delivering the following enterprise solutions: application frameworks, web, mobile, traditional service oriented architectures, APIs, business process management, development processes and tools
