Senior Manager, Emerging Technology Intelligence


Capital One is one of the world's leading software companies and a forward-thinking, strategy-driven company. We are looking for someone who embodies these two capabilities to build out our newly created 'Emerging Technology Intelligence' function - which focuses on harnessing the power of emerging technologies to keep Capital One at the forefront of technology and banking.


Capital One is building one of the world's leading software companies. It's audacious work on a massive scale and it's incredibly rewarding. The Emerging Technology Intelligence team sets the vision and pace for the Company on emerging technologies, partnering with our CIO and technology and product leadership across lines of business. Our technology transformation is widely admired, with a mobile app that was rated #1 by JD Power. We are one of the only Fortune 150 companies that's fully on public cloud as of 2020, and Eno, our chatbot, is widely written about as an example of a long line of Capital One innovations.

Founded by former strategy consultants, Capital One is also a strategy driven company. The Emerging Technology Intelligence team sits within Corporate Strategy and engages on emerging technologies with the aim of driving a step-change in the direction and performance of the company. The Emerging Technology Intelligence function involves both 'always-on' scanning of new technologies and running focused 'strategy cycles' to recommend a course of action for the company for emerging technologies with transformational potential.

Capital One is regularly recognized as one of the best places to work, including as part of the Fortune Magazine Top 100 Companies to Work For. We have been recognized as a top workplace for diversity, women, the LGBTQ community, working parents and military veterans. Our associates flourish in our open culture where a meritocracy of ideas and harnessing collective wisdom trump titles and hierarchy. We proudly bring together associates with diverse perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences in an environment where they can challenge the status quo and reimagine money to inspire life.


The newly created Emerging Technology Intelligence function is responsible for understanding the emerging technology landscape (e.g., Web3, Cryptocurrency, Blockchain, Quantum computing, Metaverse, NFT's, new payments technologies) and advising the most senior leadership on the potential impact on Capital One.

We are looking for a Senior Manager who will drive the Emerging Technology Intelligence function and take ownership for most critical activities. As a part of the leadership team you will:
  • Develop a thoughtful and fact-based perspective for Capital One on high potential emerging technologies, including what they are and which are highest impact for Capital One
  • Recommend which emerging technologies Capital One should take advantage of, and how specifically the company should leverage the technology
  • Partner with our CIO, division CIOs, Capital One Ventures, Capital One Labs, and other teams to develop the points of view, track current investments, and form new ventures
  • Manage the day-to-day work of permanent and temporarily staffed Emerging Technology Intelligence team members, contributing to their personal development

An ideal candidate will bring:
  • Conceptual problem solving : You are comfortable with ambiguity and can create structure where none exists, including for novel, 'game-changing' ideas. You have a track record of making recommendations to senior executives based on qualitative and/or quantitative insights.
  • Stakeholder engagement : You are excited to build relationships across Capital One to find new ideas and pressure-test your own ideas with our community of Distinguished Engineers. You push the boundaries and don't let yourself be constrained by the status quo.
  • Presence and communicatio n: You can communicate your ideas in a concise and compelling way. You are comfortable presenting to your findings senior executives like the CIO, CTO, and Chief Product Officer.
  • Curiosity : You ask why, you explore, you want to learn - all in service of building expertise in technology as well as banking. You thrive when finding out all there is to know about an emerging technology, developing insights informed beyond desktop research.
  • Coaching : You are excited to coach, mentor and develop great talent. You go out of your way to ensure your team members achieve their development goals and enjoy the work.
  • Technology experience : Previous experience in venture capital, technology strategy, technology research & insights, and/or research coverage of a technology company.
