Senior Associate, Data Scientist- Bank Operations

Senior Associate Data Scientist, Bank Operations Data Science

Data is at the center of everything we do. 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 have skyrocketed us to a Fortune 200 company and a leader in the world of data-driven decision-making.

As a Data Scientist at Capital One, you’ll be part of a team that’s leading the next wave of disruption at a whole new scale, using the latest in computing and machine learning technologies and operating across billions of customer records to unlock the big opportunities that help everyday people save money, time and agony in their financial lives.

Team Description

The Bank Operations Data Science team builds the machine learning models that run the gamut. We ensure our customers have access to ATMs to withdrawal their funds and deposit them at any hour of the day. Our OCR text parsing models ensure that our bank can reliably adhere to legal requests for funds in a semi-automated fashion at scale. The machine vision models we are exploring may one day allow us to lead the industry in fraud prevention. We build innovative solutions on unstructured text utilizing emerging ML tools like Tensorflow, Tesseract, and Textractor and dabble with CRNN in conjunction with OpenCV to create models that haven’t existed before.

  • Technical. You’re comfortable with open-source languages and are passionate about developing further. You have hands-on experience developing data science solutions using open-source tools and cloud computing platforms.
  • Statistically-minded. You’ve built models, validated them, and backtested them. You know how to interpret a confusion matrix or a ROC curve. You have experience with clustering, classification, sentiment analysis, time series, and deep learning.
