Help us humanise tech

Life in our Software Academy means developing solutions that define the way we work and what we do. You’re going to be getting your hands on the technologies that enable us to deliver great customer experiences – to humanise finance. So you can expect to be in one of our many areas:

  • Work as a Software Engineer across several teams, using the latest JavaScript frameworks for web development, native iOS and Android mobile development, and cloud-hosted microservices.
  • Experience Quality Engineering, building frameworks to automate our quality checks.
  • Be part of our Dev Tools team, creating the tools that make the development and deployment of our software seamless.
  • Support our drive to AWS in our Infrastructure Engineering support teams – you’ll be creating infrastructure frameworks in the cloud to support our 3 million customers.
  • Keep our systems watertight in Cyber where you’ll stay one step ahead of cybercriminals.

And here’s a year-by-year breakdown to give you more of a feel of what you’ll be doing and when:

Year One

  • Hone your skills within your chosen area in everything from APIs to mobile, big data and cyber security – you’ll get a masterclass in software engineering
  • ‘Build solutions on the Cloud by leveraging Open Source technologies to totally reimagine our business’
  • Learn how automated testing provides the quality that allows us to move at speed’
  • Learn all about Capital One and the industry we’re working to humanise
  • Become a master of Agile working and get used to daily stand-ups and collaborative designs

Year Two - All of the above, plus:

  • Rotate through different teams to broaden the technologies and products you work with
  • Use the knowledge and skills you’ve developed so far to drive real business impact

Throughout the programme, you’ll work side-by-side with product owners and designers to create ever-better customer experiences. And scrums, huddles and daily catch-ups will all become second nature.

You'll need to be well-versed in programming

We operate an omnichannel servicing strategy to provide great servicing experiences for our customers. We use the latest JS frameworks for Web development, native iOS and Android Mobile development and cloud hosted microservices. This programme is fast-paced and challenging – so you need to be a dab hand at learning quickly.
