UX Researcher

The PowerUp Experience Delivery (PXD) Team's responsibility is to connect users in the Capital One enterprise with simple to use, digitally enriched experiences that are designed to maximize associate productivity. There. That sounds corporate-y enough to get past the HR folks - so now that's straight, let's break it down: We do cool stuff. A lotta cool stuff. Our teams uncover old, gross processes and identify pain caused by outdated or shoddy technology - and then we design, develop, and implement new ways of doing things that alleviate users' headaches and wasted time. To make all of this happen, we have great people with diverse skillsets - including researchers, designers, developers, product owners, and data scientists - all collaborating and working together with a common goal of improving the experience for every user in the Capital One enterprise. We set audacious goals, laugh at danger, break all the rules, show up, blow up, and return to our Fortresses of Solitude when the day is over. If you're super and want to work with super people - you know where to find us.
