Data Scientist

  • Forecasting

At Capital One, data is at the center of everything we do. When we launched as a startup we disrupted the credit card industry by individually personalizing every credit card offer using statistical modeling and the relational database, cutting edge technology in 1988! Fast-forward a few years, and this little innovation and our passion for data has skyrocketed us to a Fortune 200 company and a leader in the world of data-driven decision-making.

Department Summary:

The Card ML team is working to transform every corner of our business with machine learning. To accomplish this goal, we use the latest techniques in machine learning - deep learning, reinforcement learning, genetic algorithms, and natural language processing - and marry them with real-time streaming data in the cloud, to create best-in-class enterprise-scale ML products. We tackle a huge variety of business problems and work with vast quantities of data of every kind.

We do machine learning research and product development differently at Capital One.

ML scientists aren't siloed in the lab, but instead partner closely with Software Engineers, Product Managers, and business stakeholders, to discover, invent, and build at the largest scale. Ideas may come from internal projects as well as from academic partnerships with world-class institutions. ML Scientists work on building state of the art speech recognition in noisy environments, building models and deriving insights from customer interactions, and enabling products that help customers complete tasks via natural language conversation.

  • Innovative. You continually research and evaluate emerging technologies.

    You stay current on published state-of-the-art ML methods, technologies, and applications. You ask why, explore and openly share your disruptive ideas.

  • Business-Minded. You can analyze customer needs and drive towards impactful business outcomes.

  • Leader. You challenge conventional thinking and traditional ways of operating and you work with stakeholders to identify and improve the status quo.

Basic Qualifications:

  • Master's Degree plus 3 years of experience in machine learning, or PhD

  • At least 3 years' coding experience with open source programming languages such as R, Python, or Scala;

  • At least 1 years' experience in machine learning
