Manager - Experience Designer
This is a Hybrid position located in Plano, TX. Relocation to Plano, TX is required if you're not located in the Dallas, TX area.
The Design team at Capital One is at the forefront of enriching our customers' digital and physical experiences. We champion a thriving environment of collaboration, authenticity and healthy critique, in which we honor diversity of thought, create a culture of belonging, and elevate one another.
We are currently seeking Lead Experience Designers to join our team as Individual Contributors to closely collaborate with groups of technical software architects, engineers, product managers, and customer success teams to thoughtfully translate complex flows or processes into simple solutions that are easy to use.
These roles could be focused on internal and external users to Capital One.
Example of Internal User focused work:
Building a web application that helps developers create new software to solve complex customer and business needs. Our tool helps teams setup environments, design the infrastructure of their application, automate builds, releases, and testing, and adhere to complex security, legal and risk requirements. All while building not just for new developers but creating a tool powerful enough for a seasoned veteran. It's a big, complex project that will have very positive impacts on the daily lives of our engineering teams across the company.
Example of External User focused work:
Build applications and products that are focused on the many different stages of the Car Ownership journey. Applications (Native and Web) are focused on supporting Car Dealerships, their customers, those that are either paying off their vehicle loan with Capital One, or someone that is looking to refinance with Capital One.
Regardless of the project you would be working on, our ideal candidate has designed apps and/or software - at scale - and understands the different approach and mindset required to create applications compared to simple websites. Extra points to someone who understands what it takes to develop applications, and has had some experience writing code themselves.
The Design team at Capital One is at the forefront of enriching our customers' digital and physical experiences.
