Manager, Data Engineering-Tech College

As a member of the Data, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence discipline of Capital One’s Tech
College, you’ll be part of a team responsible for curating, designing, developing, and delivering highly
engaging learning experiences that will fuel our growth as a tech company and help our associates
develop cutting-edge skills in data engineering, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. We’ll also
expect you to keep up with the latest and greatest data engineering and machine learning tools and
capabilities so that you can lead our associates’ learning.

Tech College is a bold investment in developing our associates and leaders, recruiting top technical
talent, and continuing to differentiate ourselves in the market. Tech College aims to transform our
approach to enabling our associates and leaders with the technical skills they need to be successful in
current and future roles.

On any given day you might be:
 Using Big Data tools (Hadoop, Spark, Kafka, H2O, AWS) to conduct the analysis of millions or
billions of records, in order to find out what works and what doesn’t
 Creating or curating educational content to help your Capital One peers stay on top of the latest
data engineering and machine learning tools and techniques
 Teaching classes or holding office hours in support of others’ learning
 Writing software to clean and investigate large, messy data sets of numerical and textual data
 Integrating with external data sources and APIs to discover interesting trends
 Building machine learning models from development through testing and validation to empower
our associates
 Designing rich data visualizations to communicate complex ideas to customers or company
 Identifying new technologies and trends that should become part of our curriculum
 Partnering with line-of-business advisors, Tech College leadership, and other stakeholder groups
to identify technical and functional needs for designing and delivering cutting-edge Tech College
learner experiences
 Partnering peers within Tech College to develop experiences that deliver maximum learner
engagement and educational impact
The Ideal Candidate will be:

 Curious. You ask why, you explore, and you are not afraid to blurt out your disruptive idea. You
probably know Python, Scala, Java, and R and you’re constantly exploring new open source
 Communicative. You’ll be sharing what you know with others in the form of papers, on-line
classes, blog posts, and in-person classes.
 Wrangler. You know how to programmatically extract data from a database and an API, bring it
through a transformation or two, and model it into human-readable form (ROC curve, map, d3
visualization, Tableau).
 Creative. Big, undefined problems and petabytes of data don't frighten you. You’re used to
working with abstract data, and you love discovering new narratives in unmined territories.
Basic Qualifications:
 Bachelor’s Degree or military experience 
 At least 5 years of professional experience developing software
 At least 2 years of experience with version control systems
 At least 2 years of experience with Unix or Linux systems
 At least 3 years of experience with Python, Java, Scala, or similar high-level language
