About this role

Capital One is seeking an experienced Software Engineering Manager to join our Services team in London.

You will be part of a world class team helping to build out the future of our native mobile offerings.

We are looking for highly experienced and driven engineers that can guide a team by example to deliver best-in-class software to our customers. Your passion for software craftsmanship and innovation for our customers means you’re always looking to gain experience with new platforms and languages and have a keen eye for what’s coming next.

We always encourage personal development through 10% of your time on training courses, sponsored professional development and attending conferences.  We’ll also give you the latest tech to help you on your way and make sure you’re generously rewarded.  As well as an attractive bonus, pension scheme and private medical insurance, you can look forward to a host of other benefits too.

What you’ll do

  • You’ll support a cross-functional group of engineers to design, develop and integrate software features that are delightful and vital to the lives of credit card consumers across all walks of life
  • Coach and nurture your engineers on how to achieve their technical, business and personal goals
  • Collaborate with product managers and designers to deliver features on the product roadmap
  • Build platforms that are performant, reliable, scalable and secure
  • Enhance the engineering and agile delivery processes with the team

What we’re looking for

  • You’ll have experience in leading and supporting an engineering team to achieve business goals
  • You’ll have excellent knowledge of RESTful API development in a modern OO language such as Java or .Net
  • You’re comfortable in reaching technical trade-offs between short-term team and long-term business needs
  • You’re passionate about recruiting and developing great engineering talent
  • You’ll demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively and work together across engineering to maximise inner-sourcing opportunities and reduce waste

Where and how you’ll work

This is a permanent position and will be based in our London office. We’ve adopted a flexible hybrid working model – one that creates the opportunity to work in your own way, but also provides great spaces for in-person collaboration.

Our core in-the-office days are Tuesday to Thursday, but they aren’t mandatory – you’ll be led by your team, the type of work you do and of course your preferences. Many of our team have flexible working patterns so we’re open to discuss flexible working arrangements with you.

  • We’re continuing our journey into the public cloud and have problems of scale, security, availability and performance for you to help solve
  • We love continuous learning and that’s why we give you 10% of your time to work on cutting edge innovative projects that shape the way we will work in the future
  • We offer high performers strong and diverse career progression, investing heavily in developing great people through our Capital One University training programmes (and appropriate external providers)
  • Immediate access to our core benefits including pension scheme, bonus, generous holiday entitlement and private medical insurance – with flexible benefits available including season-ticket loans, cycle to work scheme and enhanced parental leave
  • Open-plan workspaces and facilities designed to inspire and support you. Our Nottingham head-office has a fully-serviced gym, subsidised restaurant, mindfulness and music rooms.
