Senior Manager, Data Architect (Remote-Eligible)

Job Description

As a Data Architect for Capital One’s Commercial Technology team,, you will be solving impactful technical problems. These are things that are hard to change later, the decisions that are important, and we’d better get right across our ~200 apps portfolio.

Commercial Tech offers dozens of complex products to our clients, and we build solutions for them as well as our associates that support them. An architect is someone that together with Product and Design shapes the products we build, down to the long list of quality attributes that include resiliency, security, and observability. An architect is a chief designer, someone that thinks in systems and takes into account org design, skill sets, timelines, and technology.

We have a polyglot landscape and rely heavily on Open Source Software, building with Go, TypeScript, Python, Java, .NET Core, Kotlin, React and Angular; we use Kafka, Restful APIs, Kubernetes, we store our data in fit for purpose databases (graph, relational, document), and run all of it on the public cloud across multiple regions. Our teams are cross-functional and we use Domain-Driven Design to help us manage complexity.

What we are looking for:

  • Background using multiple data storage technologies including relational, document, key/value, graph and object stores

  • A deep understanding of the strengths and shortcomings of each storage technologies and ability to select the appropriate tool based on use case requirements

  • Hands on experience with AWS Cloud storage technologies including RDS, DynamoDB and S3

  • Ability to design and implement high availability, multi-region data replication for mission critical applications

  • Experience designing and implementing data management solutions that enable Data Quality, Master and Reference Data Management, and Metadata Management.

  • A track record of designing and implementing end-to-end data pipelines supporting both production and analytic use cases

  • Experience designing and implementing event based stream processing solutions using technologies such as Kafka, Kinesis, Spark and Flink

  • Demonstrated ability to partner with internal product and intent owners to help define requirements and outcomes for data-focused initiatives

  • Ability to decompose large problems and execute smaller, manageable bodies of work to demonstrate continuous architecture delivery

  • Ability to communicate complex technical topics and trade-offs to business stakeholders


  • Define the target state architecture for horizontal data services and platforms

  • Develop relationships with key stakeholders, peers in Enterprise Architecture and engineering teams. 

  • Make and document key architectural decisions for Agile delivery teams

  • Review delivery team designs and assess alignment with target architecture and relevant policies

  • Own design and data governance decisions in partnership with the Divisional Chief Architect and peer architects.

  • Develop standards for publishing, modeling and protecting data
