Location: McLean, VA, 22106, USA

Description: 114 5th Ave (22114), United States of America, New York, New York



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 Science



At Capital One, data is at the center of everything we do. When we launched as a startup we disrupted the credit card industry by individually personalizing every credit card offer using statistical modeling and the relational database, cutting edge technology in 1988! Fast-forward a few years, and this little innovation and our passion for data has skyrocketed us to a Fortune 200 company and a leader in the world of data-driven decision-making.



In particular, our Small Business Card business has witnessed unparalleled double digit growth over the past few years! This, at a time when industry-wide data on small businesses continues to be scattered and unstructured and most importantly, without a primary linking key. Imagine what we could achieve if only we solved this problem!



Role Summary:



As a Data Scientist Leader, you’ll be part of a team that’s leading the next wave of disruption at a whole new scale- you’ll use the latest techniques in information retrieval and disambiguation to accurately resolve entities across aggregated data, thereby enabling sophisticated models to power business decision making.



On any given day you’ll:



+ Lead a team of data scientists to explore & evaluate the landscape of data, tools & cutting edge techniques to improve entity resolution capabilities

+ Partner with data engineers to validate & deploy recommendations in an efficient, sustainable & usable manner

+ Build, motivate & mentor a team of data scientists to grow their skills and careers

+ Build relationships both within Capital One and the external data science community to continue to attract & develop top-tier talent



The Ideal Candidate will be:



+ A Technical Expert- You have hands-on experience developing data science solutions, from concept to production, and selecting the right tool for the job at hand. You understand modern cloud computing. You have experience prototyping and implementing data science solutions in an enterprise- particularly around information retrieval & disambiguation. You know R, Scala, and Python.

+ Innovative- You continually research and evaluate emerging technologies. You stay current on published state-of-the-art algorithms and models. Fundamentally, you disrupt & deliver a better way.

+ A Leader- You challenge conventional thinking and traditional ways of operating as you work with other leaders to drive significant improvements in a well-managed way. You lead your team by example.

+ A Communicator: You can communicate complex ideas clearly. Your team knows their priorities as does executive leadership.



Twenty-five years after Capital One was started it’s still led by its founder. Be ready to join a community of the smartest people you’ve ever met, who see the customer first, and want to use their data skills to make a difference.



Basic Qualifications:



-- Bachelor’s Degree plus 8 years of experience in data analytics, or Master’s Degree plus 6 years of experience in data analytics, or PhD plus 4 years of experience in data analytics
