About Capital One Canada

We've been helping millions of Canadians for over 20 years by providing them with access to credit. We're on a journey to put our customers first, and keep them there, by providing innovative, smart solutions that make banking effortless.

Working with us

How do we do things at Capital One? We listen — to our people, and to our customers. We change with the times, currently working remotely with plans to move to a flexible hybrid model (remote and/or in-office) in the future. A flexible hybrid working model is one that creates the opportunity to match the work that we do to the environment that best supports that work. We recognize that everyone has a unique working pattern so we’re open to discussing flexible working arrangements that will best accommodate you.

Capital One is more than you think. We're a data-driven tech company that just happens to do credit cards. We focus on customer-first solutions, and we're united with this common goal. We have all the advantages of a startup, with the resources of a big company. Working here means you're curious, innovative spirit will be encouraged as you push boundaries and try new things, while your career is nurtured and supported. Our environment is creative and filled with teams that are passionate about the dynamic work they're doing. We're ahead of other banks in tech and we want to keep it that way.

As the pioneers of analytics in the financial industry, we thrive on using data to solve complex problems and build a world class business. We offer exciting opportunities for innovation as the industry becomes increasingly focused on digital technology, and the amount of data available to ground our strategies continues to grow. With your help, we will build the next generation of banking in Canada based on customer-focused values, compelling products and great engineering.
