Come be a part of an organization that’s dedicated to helping Capital One identify, manage and effectively mitigate risk – for our customers, our clients, and our associates.

As a member of the US Card Partnerships Well Managed Team, that’s exactly what you’ll do. Working with talented associates, you’ll use our horizontal perspective and scope to build products, processes, and experiences that fuel efficient, well managed growth for the Partnerships business. 

As a Senior Risk Manager you will be responsible for providing horizontal, well managed support across partner and infrastructure teams. You’ll work with business partners and clients to identify and manage existing and potential risks to the Card Partnerships Portfolio. Senior Risk Managers at Capital One are highly motivated professionals with excellent analytical, organizational, and communication skills. These skills allow the Senior Risk Manager to gain insights, and act as a change agent to influence their business partners. A successful Senior Risk Manager operates from a foundation of knowledge about the Line of Business they support, applicable laws / regulations and good risk management practices. As Capital One evolves to meet the ever changing technology landscape, so do our associates. They are forward thinking, quick to adapt, and technologically adept.

The Well Managed team also supports critical departmental or cross-functional initiatives and projects including Audits, Exams, Compliance Assessments, Partner Conversions, Business Continuity Planning, and Process Redesign. This Senior Risk Manager will interact with auditors and examiners to prepare the business, manage the facilitation of audits and exams, and assist/review business responses being submitted to auditors. This is a critical role with high visibility across the Card organization, partner divisions, and second and third lines across the enterprise.  

Specific responsibilities include, but are not limited to: 

  • Managing and leading a high performing team of associates and potentially non-associates

  • Acting as a subject matter expert to effectively partner with key stakeholders to achieve desired outcome or improvement by clarifying needs and providing appropriate solutions (e.g. new intent, issue resolution, assessment model)

  • Assisting in the identification of risks, issues and/or mitigation plans to ensure the business implements needed changes and addresses areas of exposure

  • Coordinating, influencing and negotiating priorities with teams to ensure well managed goals/timelines are met; escalating when appropriate
