Determined to do work that matters?

If you think Capital One is just a credit card provider, think again. In many ways, we're as much a technology business as a finance company. We pioneered the use of predictive modelling in this industry, and today we still look at credit the way tech companies look at everything - with a view to changing the way people live.

It all makes this an inspiring place to spend your year in industry - the skills you gain with us will complement your studies and give you a great head start in your career.

Expect plenty of freedom and lots of hands-on work alongside experts right up to Director level. We love to create incredible code. And we care just as much about the people behind the code. Get ready to be yourself and let your ideas fly.

Software Engineers at Capital One

Our Software Engineers create the solutions that define the way we work and what we do - the tech they create helps us to find the right credit for every customer. For you, it means the chance to hone your skills in everything from APIs to mobile, big data to cyber security. Basically, this is a year-long masterclass in software engineering.

What you'll need

You don't need to be on a Computer Science degree course, but you will need to be able to code in any language. You'll also need to be studying a degree that requires a year working in industry. But we don't expect you to be an accomplished developer - just enthusiastic and a quick learner.

We're inspiring because we're inclusive. A gamechanger because we never stop pushing ourselves. Great because of you.
