We are looking for an exceptional and innovative individual to join Capital One's elite Digital Strategy team that is defining and leading the company’s transformation into a great information and software company.

  • Package strategic and analytical insights into clear, concise and “executive-ready” presentations.

  • Communicate findings to senior management and to the broader organization, influencing upwards and laterally to drive organizational change and alignment.

  • Ensure that our recommendations are driven through to implementation, by providing thought leadership and, when necessary, stepping in to lead execution.

  • Develop and implement analytical frameworks to monitor and optimize the concrete impact our initiatives are having on key business results.

Ideal candidates will possess:

  • Experience at a leading management consulting firm and/or within a top tier corporate strategy / venture capital group.

  • Strong interpersonal, leadership, and communication skills (including PowerPoint).

  • High motivation and self-direction, taking personal ownership for results and professional development.

  • Ability to handle multiple tasks simultaneously and to prioritize, thriving in a fast-paced, collaborative environment.
