About this role

Capital One's mission is to change banking for good by bringing humanity, ingenuity and simplicity to banking. Sitting at the core of these values is our Software Engineering department, whose primary role is to be an effective enabler of Capital One’s ambitions.

We are keen to add a Software Developer in Test to our London based Services team.

The team focuses on creating robust, secure, and scalable services that underpin our Web and Mobile applications. Services power all the interactions customers have with their accounts, and are fundamental to delivering the Product Team’s customer engagement features.

We’re looking for an experienced Software Developer in Test whose technical skill set lies primarily with technologies/frameworks such as Java, Cucumber, Gherkin, JUnit, RestAssured, Gradle. AWS is Capital One's hosting platform of choice so your experience of Cloud-based infrastructure will stand you in good stead.

Our Software Developers in Test are people who have the ability to lead by example, build strong and valuable relationships and the confidence to influence at all levels. They also have ability to answer these questions;

  • Can you use your abilities to help us shift testing to the left side of the cycle?
  • Can you design and direct a testing strategy at system level?
  • Do you intuitively understand how to turn Product requirements into testing scenarios.

We are proud of who we are and what we do and this is an exciting time to join Capital One as we are excited about what the future holds.

What you’ll do

  • Be part of a self-organised Services Engineering team and deliver creative automated testing solutions that are delightful and vital to the lives of credit card consumers across all walks of life
  • Convert the goals and vision articulated by Product Management and your management chain into the test approach and test scenarios.
  • Question the software that is written with a test approach that demonstrates all of those objectives have been met.
  • Define and own the test approach for components, and how they integrate at a system level, for your team. Your approach will meet the objectives of Product Management, Risk Mitigation, Quality and Efficiency
  • Be the interface between Product Management’s acceptance criteria and the code the engineers have written.
  • Direct clear lineage from requirements, to acceptance criteria, to test scenarios, to code in the work that you do
  • Innovate within your team, initiative area and contribute within your technical domain

What we’re looking for

  • Excellent programming skills. The primary language of our quality and software engineers in Services is Java and for this role we expect you to be able to lead the testing area from the outset
  • Commitment. You want to be in a successful team; you’ll use collaboration and communication to achieve that
  • Knowledge of Agile Scrum practices. You can contribute to the team’s ways of working because of your experience in an Agile environment
  • Drive. You’ll teach us the best practices you already use, and you’ll learn the new techniques and processes we need to use next
