This job is no longer available.

As a Director, Solutions Architect - Risk Management you’ll be at the center of some of our most high impact and challenging problems. You’ll report to the Divisional CIO for Risk Management, and be responsible for designing cutting-edge solutions utilizing microservice architectures and open source frameworks implemented in the cloud, working with various technologies: Java, Spark, relational databases, ML, API development, and AWS/Cloud Infrastructure to name a few.  We’re building software products and services, but the right candidate is someone who recognizes that ultimately data is at the heart of everything we do, and who is passionate mentoring a great group of engineers. We're looking for someone who welcomes challenges and is hyper-focused on delivering exceptional results to internal business customers while partnering effectively in a team environment.

The Job:
• Work with the Divisional CIO to define and evolve highly integrated modern architectures for Risk Management and Anti-Money Laundering processes at Capital One

• Navigate the seams of our microservices to ensure effective integration and resiliency across the domain and with our broader technology ecosystem

• Define and lead integration with emerging shared capabilities (streaming platform, enterprise data lake, etc.)

• Determine readiness of new capabilities to be used to support critical operational processes 

• Work hands on to code, review, and design software solutions

• Provide senior level technical consulting to engineering teams during application design and development for highly complex or critical projects 

• Work across Technology to ensure major initiatives do not disrupt continuity of critical risk management processes

• Provide oversight for budgets and project plans, and manage technology risks and issues 

Your interests: 
• You ponder over what drove your streaming music service’s algorithms to accurately predict that you’d like the song you’re listening to. You obsess over obscure sports statistics.  Nate Silver asks you who’s going to win the next election.  You love data
• You get a thrill out of using large data sets, some of them messy, to answer real-world questions 
• You maniacally automate everything you can.  Tony Stark has nothing on you
• You yearn to be a part of cutting edge, high profile projects and are motivated by delivering world-class solutions on an aggressive schedule 
• You are passionate about finding refined solutions to complex coding challenges and helping the entire team meet its commitments 
• You love interacting with teams of highly talented Software Engineers, strive to help others build their skills and achieve their career goals 
• Humor and fun are a natural part of who you are
