Being an effective Data Scientist at Capital One is much more than just writing code and building models—those are a given. It’s just as important to be able to integrate results, understand how the model applies to the business problem, and ultimately spur new action. The work we accomplish in Data Science has a huge impact on the company and improves our customers’ lives. We’re always finding innovative ways to develop new technologies and power our future with data.
Our data scientists don’t just follow the status quo and keep the ship running — they’re urged to take calculated risks. We encourage not only the adoption of new ideas, but the disruption of existing routines by investing in new ways to leverage machine learning.
Strategic Problem Solving
Our teams approach complex problems with nimbleness and tenacity — it’s how we’re able to remain an industry leader and make huge strides in building the next generation of valuation models.
Learning On The Job
No one here will expect you to have all the answers, but we do expect grit and a willingness to learn. Our associates are constantly given new opportunities to upskill, so we’re always on the cutting edge of tech.
