Join our Software Academy Intern Programme

We’re Capital One. You might think of us as a credit card provider. But we’re as much a tech company as we are a finance company. And what really makes us different is the fact that we’re really all about the people behind the numbers – our colleagues and our customers.

Location: Nottingham

What you will be doing

Looking to create positive change?

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. This is why Software Engineers are essential to our business.

One of the happy consequences of making finance easier for our customers is that Capital One is an inspiring place to launch your career. You’ll take on real projects with support from a buddy on your team and a programme mentor – you’ll get to meet our CEO too. You could even jump the queue when it comes to landing a place on our graduate programme. We love to create code. And we care just as much about the people behind the code. So get ready to be yourself and let your ideas fly.

We want to help you grow. That’s why we invest heavily in your learning and development. We’ve got a great track record of hiring graduates and enabling them to reach their full potential. Just look at our CEO, Lucy Hagues. She started as a graduate and now leads the UK business. And that’s just one of many success stories.

Software Engineers at Capital One

Our software engineers challenge the status quo and make an impact on millions of customers every single day. And that's what makes engineering at Capital One like nowhere else.

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 10-week masterclass in software engineering.

Where and how you will work

This is a 10-week summer internship position based in our Nottingham office. But you should know we’ve adopted a flexible hybrid working model - one that creates the opportunity to work both remotely and in our offices, which provide great spaces for in-person collaboration.

Our core office days are Tuesday and Wednesday, but the number of days you actually spend in the office will be led by your team, the work you’re doing. Many of our associates have flexible working patterns, so we’re open to discuss flexible working arrangements with you.

What you will have

You don’t need to be on a Computer Science degree course, but you’ll need to be able to code in any language and you must be in your penultimate year of university. We don’t expect you to be an accomplished developer – just enthusiastic and a quick learner.

Sponsorship: We’re able to sponsor if you currently have the right to work in the UK including student visas.

Eligibility: Open to any penultimate year university students.

Who we are

At Capital One, we’re building a leading information-based technology company. Still founder-led by Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Richard Fairbank, Capital One is on a mission to help our customers succeed by bringing ingenuity, simplicity, and humanity to banking. We measure our efforts by the success our customers enjoy and the advocacy they exhibit. We are succeeding because they are succeeding.

Guided by our shared values, we thrive in an environment where collaboration and openness are valued. We believe that innovation is powered by perspective and that teamwork and respect for each other lead to superior results. We elevate each other and obsess about doing the right thing. Our associates serve with humility and a deep respect for their responsibility in helping our customers achieve their goals and realize their dreams. Together, we are on a quest to change banking for good.
