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 

Capital One Canada is 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. In our dynamic, agile environment, you’ll be encouraged to have ownership over your own work, with ample opportunity for career movement and advancement.  

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. 

Our approach is designed to foster collaboration and innovation with a focus on agility and teamwork. We’re passionate about associates having fun, and since it’s uncomfortable to do any of those things in a suit and tie, those aren’t required either. We have a business casual dress code because we believe our associates will do their best work when they’re feeling like themselves.

It’s like management consulting, but better. (Seriously.) 

As a business analyst, you’re not just charged with coming up with great strategies that sound good on paper, but are asked to bring them to life through end-to-end delivery, measuring their impact through testing and monitoring, and ultimately being accountable for both P&L and customer outcomes. 

You’ll spend time gathering and visualizing data, storytelling through presentations, collaborating with experts in areas like legal and technology,  and influencing senior leadership on critical decisions. You’ll work with tools like SQL to query data, spreadsheets and python-based notebooks to organize it, slides to present it, along with a number of other modern analytics tools. We work in agile, cross-functional teams so you’ll also have the opportunity to learn from other job families like data science and process management too.

We are defining the next generation of banking in Canada, challenging the brick and mortar status quo. We are looking for well-rounded, passionate, and analytical professionals to join our high performing culture focused on customer-centric design and data-driven problem-solving.

As a Senior Business Analyst at Capital One, you will apply your strategic and analytical skills to major company challenges. You will team up with world-class analytics professionals to develop and test strategies that ultimately impact the bottom line. And you will do it all in a collaborative environment that values your insight, encourages you to take on new responsibility, promotes continuous learning, and rewards innovation. We’ll invest in you and give you work you’re excited to do. 

We are looking for big picture thinking, analytically minded team players who possess a range of strengths:   

  • Analytically oriented: Experience in analytical problem-solving. Conceptual thinking skills must be complemented by a strong quantitative orientation, given that a large part of the business is based on rigorous analytics. Are comfortable writing basic code in languages like SQL or Python, and interested in growing this skill. 

  • Strategically minded: A thoughtful decision maker who is able to bring actionable and grounded recommendations to senior leadership. Able to identify and synthesize business challenges and opportunities, and solve for them using analysis to make strategic or tactical recommendations.

  • Influential communicator: Ability to communicate complex ideas both verbally and in writing, coupled with strategic influencing skills and the ability to drive agreement through intellect and interpersonal skills. 

  • Results oriented:  Focuses on driving impact both short and long term, and are able to drive and execute an agenda end-to-end from conception through to in-market delivery within an uncertain and fluid environment.

  • Team player: Helps us achieve more than the sum of our parts by collaborating effectively with others and encouraging an inclusive culture with diverse teammates.

Our business analysts work in a wide range of exciting areas across the business, including: 

  • Product: Perform modeling/analytics to assist new product and pricing strategies for various lending products.

  • Marketing: Develop direct-to-consumer marketing strategy and initiatives to support business growth objectives. Help build targeted insights to inform the design and development of new customer experiences, as well as breakthrough technology and concepts designed to deliver on new go to market strategies.

  • Credit Risk: Support step-change improvements in credit performance by connecting drivers of future consumer credit trends to historical behaviour, creating risk models, and testing hypotheses using rigorous monitoring and analysis.
