About Capital One Canada

We've been helping millions of Canadians for over 20 years by providing them with access to credit when others would not, helping them to build or rebuild their credit history. We're on a journey to put our customers first, and keep them there, by building modern technology solutions to simplify and humanize the world of credit cards for millions of Canadians.  We have all the positive energy of a startup, with the advantages of a big company. 

Capital One Canada’s Software Studio Journey

Since the inception of the Capital One Canada’s Software Studio in 2014, we’ve grown from having a couple of engineers to over 250. We’re constantly on the look-out for technology enthusiasts that are looking to make a difference in the world of Credit Cards. We’re obsessed about doing the right thing and finding innovative solutions to better service our customers.

We’re all-in on the cloud and are a leader in the adoption of open source, RESTful APIs, microservices, and containers. We build our own products and release them with a speed and agility that allows us to get new customer experiences to market quickly. And, as a founder-led company, we’re inspired to make, break, do, and do good. So, let’s do something great together. Want to learn more? Check out life at Capital One in the Software Studio!
