Senior Manager, Technology - Strategy & Special Projects

Capital One's Cloud & Productivity Engineering (CPE) team is looking for an independent, self-starter that can deliver high-quality products with minimal supervision to provide strategic and tactical support for our organization.

As part of the Top of House team, you'll work with a cross-functional team to support the creation of our yearly strategy and vision, and identify and execute special projects to support our leaders and our organization to achieve our defined objectives. Think of this role as an internal consultant of sorts - you'll be responsible for supporting the Director, Strategic, Communications and Engagement and the CPE Chief of Staff on a variety of areas from business process improvement, change management, and strategy to organizational design and special projects. You'll help our team and our leaders see around the corner, identify roadblocks to our strategy and objectives and proactively take on efforts to remove those through special projects and systemic change. You'll work with leaders across CPE as well as Technology as you drive change.

Special projects can mean many things and here, we define special projects as cross-functional initiatives that have strategic impact across the entire organization. To be successful, you'll need to embrace change, think strategically about how best to communicate change, and move teams through the change curve. You'll also need an internal drive to seek constant improvement - you're comfortable with iterating on ideas and are always looking for ways to do better. You have strong verbal communication skills to complement your written ones and can clearly articulate ideas to, and influence, senior leaders.

To help you determine if our role has your name written all over it, ask yourself a few questions:
  • Do you thrive in a fast-paced, dynamic environment?
  • Are you a strategic thinker who can also nail execution?
  • Is masterfully juggling multiple priorities and changing direction on a dime just another Monday for you?
  • Do you enjoy solving complex problems and driving action across the organization?
  • Do you enjoy creating the best environment to enable associates to get their work done?
  • Do you have a gift for building strong relationships with people with diverse styles across levels and functions?
  • Is having fun while you work a given?

  • Partner with leaders across the organization to build the team's strategy and vision.
  • Proactively identify opportunities for strategic change and execute upon those opportunities.
  • Manage multiple tasks simultaneously using strong time management and prioritization skills.
  • Adapt positively to rapid-changing environment and business priorities, and adjust scope as needed.
  • Have excellent communication and partnership skills which are essential for business management.
  • Ability to quickly develop expertise on departmental processes and procedures.
  • Demonstrate a proven track record of excellent delivery, bringing the ability to quickly put structure in place to manage work in a dynamic complex environment.
  • Demonstrate critical thinking and problem-solving skills with the ability to manage detailed and complex information in a rapidly changing environment.

Basic Qualifications:
  • Bachelor's degree
  • At least 5 years of experience in consulting, strategic management, or business process improvement

Preferred Qualifications:
  • 2+ years experience in Project Management or Agile Delivery
  • 3+ years of experience working with software engineering teams
  • 2+ years of experience in Change Management
