At Capital One, we’re building a leading information-based technology company. Still founder-led, Capital One's goal is to help our customers succeed by bringing ingenuity, simplicity, and humanity to banking. We measure our efforts by the success our customers enjoy and the advocacy they exhibit. We are succeeding because they are succeeding.                                               

Guided by our shared values, we thrive in an environment where collaboration and openness are valued. We believe that innovation is powered by perspective and that teamwork and respect for each other lead to superior results. We elevate each other and obsess about doing the right thing. Our associates serve with humility and a deep respect for their responsibility in helping our customers achieve their goals and realize their dreams. Together, we are on a quest to change banking for good.

The Role

The Small Business Product Brand Marketing team is a passionate and entrepreneurial team of product marketing strategists focused on communicating the value of our Small Business Card and Bank products across our marketing channels to prospective Business Owners and existing customers. 

We are looking for a marketing strategist to join our Product Brand Strategy team and help us build the positioning, messaging, and campaign strategy for our Small Business products. They’ll partner closely with our product teams, research team, and integrated and channel marketing teams to devise, test and execute product brand strategy aligned to our product roadmap and business objectives. 

Key Responsibilities:

  • Support the development of positioning, messaging and communications strategy for Small Business products. 

  • Partner closely with the Product teams to define the portfolio brand strategy and product roadmap for our Small Business products, develop the go-to-market strategy for those products, and oversee the marketing launch of new products and new positioning.

  • Partner with the research team to deeply understand the target audience, validate product positioning and messaging, and act as the voice of the customer to the organization at large, to ensure all customer touchpoints both pre and post acquisition provide a seamless, high quality experience, and that the product messaging remains consistent across touchpoints. 

  • Keep track of the competitive space to understand how competitors are evolving their product and messaging strategies, and build strategies that position us for success in the market. 

  • Build the core product-level positioning, messaging, and creative concepts to instruct all downstream channels about how the product should exist in the market. 

  • Develop the high level integrated campaign strategy for products both at launch and in an on-going fashion. Partner closely with the Integrated Marketing team and the relevant Channels Marketing teams to develop, build and execute integrated campaign strategies across upper funnel, lower funnel and customer channels. Partner closely with the brand marketing team to ensure the product-level messages align with the brand standards. 

  • Actively participate in “hub and spoke” integrated teams on behalf of product brand strategy; represent Product Brand Strategy and Brand Marketing more broadly with key partners in a highly matrixed environment.

Here’s what you’ll need to be successful:

  • High level of initiative and ownership, ability to coordinate efforts across diverse functional groups

  • Ability to self-direct and task switch between strategic and tactical initiatives regularly

  • Succinct, focused written and verbal communication skills

  • Exceptional analytical and problem solving skills

  • Preference to be a member of a lean, nimble team where fast failure, change and evolution is expected and encouraged

  • Preference to work on highly ambiguous projects – where you are expected to test hypotheses and stand up best practices that don’t exist today

  • Diligent listening skills and the ability to adapt approach among diverse audiences to tease out insights and pain points

  • High degree of comfort bringing ideas to the table that might at first seem absurd – then quickly build a case for testing and ultimately a recommendation for pursuit, scaling or abandoning

  • Confidence to ask hard questions and push into uncharted territories – and not defaulting to the status quo before exploring new paths and quantifying risk / reward

THE BIG THREE:

  • Whole Brained – equally analytical and creative, and deftly employing both skills to deliver bold programs that deliver substantive outcomes 

  • Fearless Leadership – highly-disciplined self-starter with a strong POV who can positively, effectively lead themselves and others, often in ambiguous and/or new territory 

  • Collaboration & Influence –  ability to productively partner with a wide variety of teams across the organization to advance our Small Business goals and connect marketing activities to the underlying business strategy.

Basic Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s Degree or military experience

  • At least one year of experience defining strategy and launching marketing plans and value propositions in support of product roadmaps and objectives.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • At least 2 years of product marketing experience in a fast-paced, technology-forward culture

  • Experience in B2B or marketing sales support
