Capital One is one of the world’s leading software companies and a forward-thinking, strategy-driven company. We are looking for someone who embodies these two capabilities to build out our newly created ‘Emerging Technology Intelligence’ function - which focuses on harnessing the power of emerging technologies to keep Capital One at the forefront of technology and banking.
ABOUT CAPITAL ONE:
Capital One is building one of the world’s leading software companies. It’s audacious work on a massive scale and it’s incredibly rewarding. The Emerging Technology Intelligence team sets the vision and pace for the Company on emerging technologies, partnering with our CIO Rob Alexander and technology and product leadership across lines of business. Our technology transformation is widely admired, with a mobile app that was rated #1 by JD Power. We are one of the only Fortune 150 companies that’s fully on public cloud as of 2020, and Eno, our chatbot, is widely written about as an example of a long line of Capital One innovations.
Founded by former strategy consultants, Capital One is also a strategy driven company. The Emerging Technology Intelligence team sits within Corporate Strategy and engages on emerging technologies with the aim of driving a step-change in the direction and performance of the company. The Emerging Technology Intelligence function involves both ‘always-on’ scanning of new technologies and running focused ‘strategy cycles’ to recommend a course of action for the company for emerging technologies with transformational potential.
Capital One is regularly recognized as one of the best places to work, including as part of the Fortune Magazine Top 100 Companies to Work For. We have been recognized as a top workplace for diversity, women, the LGBTQ community, working parents and military veterans. Our associates flourish in our open culture where a meritocracy of ideas and harnessing collective wisdom trump titles and hierarchy. We proudly bring together associates with diverse perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences in an environment where they can challenge the status quo and reimagine money to inspire life.
The newly created Emerging Technology Intelligence function is responsible for understanding the emerging technology landscape (e.g., Web3, Cryptocurrency, Blockchain, Quantum computing, Metaverse, NFT’s, new payments technologies) and advising the most senior leadership on the potential impact on Capital One.
We are looking for a Senior Associate who will be the ‘engine’ of Emerging Technology Intelligence function and own the execution of the most critical activities. Key responsibilities include:
Keeping tabs with what is going on in the world of emerging technologies, reading articles from thought-leaders, attending webinars, speaking with internal experts, and connecting with external thought leaders (e.g., industry analysts, Venture Capital funds, start-ups)
Developing ‘deep-dive’ materials on previously identified high potential emerging technologies, creating an easy to follow story of ‘what has happened’, ‘why do we care’, and ‘so what do we do about it’
Engage with stakeholders across Capital One to better understand the specific use cases for an emerging technology and develop a recommended plan of action
An ideal candidate will bring:
Curiosity: You thrive in finding out all there is to know about an emerging technology - including staying on top of market developments, internal developments at capital one, and thinking of how emerging technologies can disrupt the status quo
Problem solving: You can wade through the hype and technical jargon to clearly separate the ‘signal vs. noise’ for an emerging technology, making clear recommendations as to where the most value is for Capital One
Communication: You can communicate the ‘so what’ insights in a compelling manner to influence senior business leaders in the company
Technology interest: You are ‘tech comfortable’ with an excitement to learn about emergent technologies; experience in technology strategy development, technology-centered venture capital, and/or research coverage of a technology company are a plus
At least 2 years experience in strategy consulting, equity research and/or venture capital
Ability to analyze and solve problems independently in a constantly changing environment
Demonstrably strong written and verbal communication skills
Robust workstream management skills, including thoughtful attention to detail and skillful balancing of multiple priorities
Fantastic interpersonal skills, with experience influencing decision-making outside your core team
