Description: West Creek 4 (12074), United States of America, Richmond, 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.



Lead Software Engineer



Capital One has established an aggressive program to rethink how our core financial products will be managed in the future. Building a nimble public cloud based environment that can react to customer needs and market demands is a dramatically different environment than the traditional brick-and-mortar & mailed statement world our mainframe applications were built to support. The Technical Product Manager will be an active member of our team that’s migrating the legacy applications off the mainframe to open source, public cloud based technologies.



In this role, you will help in analyzing the data to identify opportunities that will migrate ~200 mainframe dependent applications and over 2000 DB2 tables to open systems on AWS such as Postgres, Casandra, and MangoDB. You will interact with engineers to figure out the best architectures, lift 'n shift candidates and support the integrated web of interdependencies across these applications and their shared databases. You will also have the opportunity to lead 1 or 2 technical teams of 5 - 6 engineers to migrate and/or modernize these databases to the cloud and their supported applications, APIs, stored procedures and batch jobs.



Here’s what you’ll need to be successful:



+ Blend of strategic and tactical thinking, creative and analytic reasoning, knowledge of technology, and a passion for leading through a complex maze of technologies

+ Entrepreneurial ability to identify and prioritize opportunities in highly ambiguous contexts

+ Exposure to large-scale systems and understanding the basics of enterprise architecture

+ Creative, outside-the-box thinking and problem solving approach

+ A bias to action and a proven track record of delivering real-world solutions

+ Knowledge of emerging and leading technologies across disciplines and ability to empower developers and deliver great products

+ Strong analytical mindset and ability to use data and logic to make compelling business cases

+ Attention to detail - You will need to learn and understand complex application dependencies

+ Comfortable delivering thru a heavily matrixed team where the ownership of the application belongs to a different party

+ A great communicator (and can prove it) both written and verbal - You must be able to present and convince very smart individuals on an ongoing basis.

+ Strong vocabulary in technical areas

+ Your bias is towards learning in market. You know what you want to learn, and you are bold enough to use failures.

+ Solid understanding of migrating data to open source databases such as Postgres, Casandra and MangoDB

+ Experience in Public Cloud especially AWS and CICD

+ Lead multiple teams and initiatives involving exploration and analysis of across a variety of platform

+ Able to attack complex application system one step at a time without getting overwhelmed and getting lost in the details



**Basic Qualifications:**



+ Bachelor’s Degree or military experience

+ At least 2 years of system development lifecycle experience

+ At least 2 years of Technology Product Management experience

+ At least 2 years of open source database and public cloud experience

+ At least 2 years of experience with Agile methodologies especially Scrum & SAFe
