Job Title: Principal Data Scientist

JobID: capitalone2-R37311

Location: McLean, VA, 22106, USA

Description: McLean 1 (19050), 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.



Principal Data Scientist



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.



As a Data Scientist at Capital One, you will be part of a team that is leading the next wave of disruption at a whole new scale, using the latest in distributed computing technologies and operating across billions of customer records to unlock the big opportunities that help everyday people save money, time and agony in their financial lives.



On any given day you will be:



-Writing software and tools to integrate, clean, and investigate large, messy but information rich data sets



-Using cutting edge technology (Spark, TensorFlow, cloud) for predictive modeling



-Leading machine learning and models through exploration, development, validation and deployment



-Creating dynamic data visualizations to develop rich insights and communicate ideas to customers and company leaders



-Nimbly conducting reproducible research and solutions in *nix/Cloud environments



-Engaging in design thinking and hands-on experimentation in collaboration with end users



-Assessing open source packages relative to model architecture and performance



-Investigating the impact of new technologies on the future of digital banking



-Working with a top tier team of other scientists, engineers, business analysts and designers



The Ideal Candidate will be:



-Curious. You ask why, you explore, you're not afraid to blurt out your disruptive idea. You probably know Python, Scala, or R and you’re constantly exploring new open source tools.



-Wrangler. You know how to programmatically extract data from a database and an API, bring it through a transformation or two, and model it into human-readable form (ROC curve, map, d3 visualization, Tableau, etc.).



-Creative. Big, undefined problems and petabytes of data don't frighten you. You’re used to working with abstract data, and you love discovering new narratives in unmined territories.



-An advocate. You put yourself in the shoes of our customers and use data and technology to improve their financial health.



Twenty-five years after Capital One was started it is 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 2 years of experience in data analytics, or Master’s Degree plus 1 year of experience in data analytics, or PhD

-At least 1 year of experience in open source programming languages for large scale data analysis

-At least 1 year of experience with machine learning or natural language processing

-At least 1 year of experience with databases (relational or noSQL)



Preferred Qualifications:



-Master’s Degree or PhD



-At least 1 year experience working with AWS

-At least 3 years’ experience in Python, Scala, or R

-At least 3 years’ experience with machine learning or natural language processing

-At least 3 years’ experience with databases (relational or noSQL)



Capital One will consider sponsoring a new qualified applicant for employment authorization for this position.
