Description: 1750 Tysons (12023), United States of America, McLean, Virginia



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.



Director of Data Engineering



Capital One (yes, the “what’s in your wallet?” company!) is rethinking the way the world approaches banking. We’re experimenting, innovating, and delivering breakthrough experiences at https://youtu.be/YWHZOx0YTc0 for 65 million customers. We love to be curious, to dream, and ask “What if?” Oh, and we love to write code at https://developer.capitalone.com/ . Not to brag, but we’re also a great place to work! at http://beta.fortune.com/best-companies/capital-one-financial-corporation-17



It’s one thing to manage a team of technical experts, it’s another level to be technically talented, with the ability to lead that team! Do you enjoy initiating innovative change, building new customer solutions while exploring different technical approaches within software engineering while embracing an evolving cloud environment? If so, this opportunity is for you.



This position is for a dynamic and strategic leader who can join teams that are already performing, and start making a difference from day one. In this role as a Data Engineering Director, you will provide technology leadership, guiding architectural and design decisions. You must be able to provide career coaching and support for team members to develop their technical, business and interpersonal professional skills. You’ll be able to identify and remove impediments, while successfully driving towards key initiatives. Building and maintaining strong relationships, earning and maintaining confidence with both customers and business leaders are critically important responsibilities. A clear and crisp communication style will establish realistic expectations for all stakeholders.



**The person we're looking for:**



+ loves driving highly scalable, data driven solutions

+ is self-driven, actively looking for ways to contribute both internally and externally in the tech community

+ is sought after by technical resources as the “guru” for a technical domain

+ values data and truth over ego

+ has a strong sense of engineering craftsmanship, developing frameworks that are used by multiple teams and applications

+ believes that good software development includes good testing, good documentation, and good collaboration

+ has great communication and reasoning skills, including the ability to make a strong case for technology choices

+ has been the champion of rolling out industry frameworks across the company (e.g. continuous integration)



You might notice that there’s no mention of specific languages or technologies. That’s because your commitment to learn new things is every bit as important to us as what you have already done. Maybe even more so because we don’t want to be doing the same thing tomorrow that we’re doing today. You accept change, want to grow, and evolve into a better member of the team. But just in case, here are some buzzword-worthy tools and technologies we currently use, so the search engines can help you find us: Agile, DevOps, AWS, Docker, micro-services, API, iOS, Android, Go, Java, Scala, Clojure, C#



**Basic Qualifications:**



+ At least 7 years of experience in software engineering and data management

+ At least 3 years experience with leading big data technologies

+ At least 3 years of experience with architecture design



**Preferred Qualifications:**



+ 3+ years of experience designing and externalizing APIs

+ 3+ years of experience managing medium to large size agile teams

+ 3+ years of experience with the AWS eco-system, toolsets and deployment architecture

+ 3+ years of leading modern development approaches (containerization, cloud, continuous delivery, micro-services, modular reactive web applications)

+ Active within the tech community (speaker at events/meetups, blogging, open source contributor)



_This is a senior-level position located in Seattle, WA. It is permanent and full-time, beginning as soon as we find the right person._



_Capital One will consider sponsoring a new qualified applicant for employment authorization for this position_
