Software Development Engineer (API) at Capital One

We’re proud to say that we’re up there amongst the UKs top 10 credit card providers. Since our beginning we’ve been a company built on bold, new ideas and entrepreneurial spirit. In an ever changing financial landscape we’re transforming to a technology company that happens to do credit, always on, and striving for the breakthroughs that will change banking for good. Changing banking for good is not an idle statement, it’s our core vision and applies to everything we do. For us, it’s a no brainer. A happy customer is a loyal customer. By bringing innovation, simplicity, and, most importantly, humanity to the financial services industry we will succeed in delivering this mission.

We are transforming ourselves into a FinTech company. We have two development centres; Nottingham and London and in these we are delivering the next big things that will help our customers succeed.

We’d like you to be part of it.

An obsession for delivering quality products to our customers is at the heart of everything we do. We are a maturing agile organisation, our teams operate with a great deal of empowerment; collaborating with product owners, designers and stakeholders to deliver great software.

We are just beginning our journey into the cloud and have problems of scale, security, availability and performance for you to help solve. We try to solve these using internal and external open-source solutions wherever possible.

We love continuous learning and that’s why we give you 10% of your time to work on cutting edge innovative projects that shape the way we will work in the future.

Additionally, Capital One has been voted the Best Workplace for the last 3 years. We’re also recognised for our work in treating customer fairly.

You will excel in end to end software development and have breadth and technical depth in more than one area. Your strong design, analytical and problem solving skills will be crucial to our success.

As well as technical skill, you’ll need the people skills to collaborate across the business – not to mention creativity and drive to make things happen.

As a Software Development Engineer, you’ll support the Dev Manager and work as part of a multidisciplinary team of engineers delivering our new API that is used by all of our client applications and 3rd parties.


With excellent programming skills in a couple of languages and extensive commercial experience developing elegant, versioned, resilient and secure services, you’ll be collaborating with product owners and the business on feature development, as well as mentoring other engineers and advising managers.

Your passion for software engineering and innovation means you’re always looking to gain experience with new platforms and languages and have a keen eye on what’s coming next. Hackathons are your thing and you’re likely to be actively engaged with the wider development community.

We offer a very competitive rewards package, a great pension scheme, bonus, generous holiday entitlement and private medical insurance. You can look forward to a host of other benefits including cycle to work and season ticket loans.

Capital One is committed to diversity in the workplace.
