At Capital One we believe that machine learning represents the biggest opportunity in financial services today. Our goal is to revolutionize the industry through real-time intelligent platforms. Capital One’s commitment to machine learning has sponsorship from the CEO, the Board of Directors, and the executive committee of the company.

Build the vision and the roadmap as to where the organization will go, what the priorities should be, creating both near-term and long-term wins from the delivery of the foundational platform that all machine learning will run on.

  • As a naturally curious leader, stay abreast of and determine how to fully leverage existing and emerging machine learning offerings where applicable.

  • Contribute to developing a robust operating model for machine learning applications that provides a clear development path from POC to prototype to full enterprise-class capabilities.
