Distinguished Engineer- Model Dev Software Engineer (Remote- Eligible)

We are looking for a very strong distinguished software engineer to work with a group of high performing teams within the Center for Machine Learning’s model development tower building Capital One’s Enterprise Model Platform. The Enterprise Model Platform is a core strategic initiative that is driving the future of machine learning across the organization. This role will be a hands-on engineering role where you will provide senior level development guidance to an organization of approximately sixty engineers focusing on Python and golang based microservices running in a large-scale Kubernetes multi-cluster topology built on AWS infrastructure.


You will be asked to provide input on code quality and style. You will have significant influence on setting coding and SDK development standards.

You will contribute to and drive our microservices architecture for our API layer and back-end systems integration as well as participate in implementation work that is already underway.

You will help the team to learn from your experience around building for performance, debugging and troubleshooting, and hopefully avoiding issues before they occur.

You will mentor junior and senior engineers, use your experience to grow our existing talent, and attract new talent to our organization.

This role is not an architect role but rather a hands-on senior level engineering leader. We expect that you will be in the code with engineers, doing PR reviews, recommending changes, and, at times, shipping code yourself.
