Senior Manager, Software Engineering (Capital One Investing)

Capital One Investing is a recently acquired fin-tech startup looking to add a talented engineering manager to our team. Capital One Investing is now a part of Capital One's technology and financial ecosystem, as we seek to scale our solution to serve millions of households in the years to come.
  • Do you care about delivering quality products to your users?
  • Are you passionate about mentoring engineers and growing future leaders?
  • Is providing maintainable, tested code to your fellow engineers (and future self) important to you?
  • Do you have a deep understanding of Javascript or Python?
  • When you encounter a problem that isn't neatly packaged and fully defined, are you passionate about digging into it and refining a solution?

If you can answer yes to these questions, you'll find working here exciting and engaging.

Capital One Investing is a money management solution for retirees that strives to be both holistic and cost-efficient. Our technology studies millions of different combinations of future life, market, and benefit outcomes with the goal of finding the optimal set of financial decisions for each of our members. Using this technology, we are able to offer personalized advice on everything from investment allocations to Social Security claiming to tax planning.

As an engineering manager, you'll be responsible for managing and growing a team of engineers. At the heart of your responsibilities is empowering your team to do the best work they can, to build phenomenal things, and to become better engineers and people. Our work requires collaboration across methodology, design, product, and more, so you must enjoy working collaboratively with a diverse team--and sometimes competing interests.

We are committed to equal opportunity and diverse hiring. Even more important than hiring is supporting our diverse team, and we are dedicated to equitable pay and transparency.

As you know, this industry moves FAST and the latest tech can fade quickly. While we hope you have some familiarity with parts of our stack, we favor versatility, an eagerness to learn, and solid foundations over the latest buzzwords. We want to see your curiosity and passion for what's out there, and also wisdom when making decisions.
