We design for both associate-guided and digital interactions to bring clarity, simplicity, and convenience to customers wherever they are in their journey, and resolve their needs across any channel. 

In this role, you will lead a design team in conducting discovery on critical customer and associate needs and developing experience concepts that realize a human-centric vision for the retail bank of the future. You will collaborate with other designers to map out complex front and back stage interactions across channels, platforms and users in multiple foundational domains (e.g., Money Movement, Customer Management, Account Servicing) and create roadmaps from pilot to experiences at scale.

The Experience Design team at Capital One is at the forefront of enriching our customers’ digital and physical experiences. We champion a thriving environment of collaboration, authenticity and healthy critique, in which we honor diversity of thought, create a culture of belonging, and elevate one another. We are passionate about human centered design methods, advocating for user needs, and delivering world-class products that redefine our customers’ day-to-day financial activities and amplify our associates’ ability to support them.

  • Guiding team members in strategy, research, alignment, analysis, and content design execution tasks

  • Providing constructive feedback in design critiques to raise the quality of thinking, communication, and execution

Discovery & Delivery

  • Participating in end-to-end service experience design by:

    • Planning project activities and timelines

    • Planning and conducting research to understand customer needs and define opportunities through empathy studies

    • Creating artifacts like personas, archetypes, and behavior modes to communicate customer behaviors, motivations, and needs to partners and other designers
