Distinguished Enterprise Architect

Distinguished Enterprise Architects are individual contributors who strive to be diverse in thought so we visualize the problem space. At Capital One, we believe diversity of thought strengthens our ability to influence, collaborate and provide the most innovative solutions across organizational boundaries. Distinguished Engineers will significantly impact our trajectory and devise clear roadmaps to deliver next generation technology solutions.

As a Distinguished Enterprise Architect for Commercial Bank, you will be solving impactful technical problems. Commercial Bank offers dozens of complex products to our clients, and we build solutions for them as well as our associates that support them. An architect is someone that together with Product and Design shapes the products we build, down to the long list of quality attributes that include resiliency, security, and observability. An architect is a chief designer, someone that thinks in systems and takes into account org design, skill sets, timelines, and technology.

We have a polyglot landscape and rely heavily on Open Source Software, building with Go, TypeScript, Python, Java, .NET Core, Kotlin, React and Angular; we use Kafka, Restful APIs, Kubernetes, we store our data in fit for purpose databases (graph, relational, document), and run all of it on the public cloud across multiple regions.
