        Business Analyst Intern — Summer 2020

        In our 25 years as a founder-led public company, Capital One has grown from a small, credit card start-up that pioneered the use of predictive modeling into one of the largest, fastest-growing, and most dynamic financial technology companies. At Capital One, we believe our success is fueled by data-driven insights, deep customer understanding, and innovative business strategy.  We’ve helped transform cities and communities by attracting incredibly talented associates with the audacity to think they can change the world and the humility to understand they need a whole lot of help to make it happen. 

        If you’re interested in Capital One and an internship that enables you to build a strong foundation by focusing on deep analytical challenges and business strategy, then the Analyst Intern Program (AIP) is a great place to begin your career journey.

        As a Business Analyst in the AIP you will:

        • Utilize hands-on experience leveraging new technology to build business strategies while developing an analytical skill set 

        • Build leadership skills in the professional setting through meaningful interaction with business leaders

        • Cultivate relationships with fellow interns and associates through extensive networking activities 

        As a Business Analyst intern, you will apply your strategic and analytical skills to major company challenges. This role will enable you to build your business management skills by developing and deploying strategies that ultimately impact the bottom line. You will act as a business consultant to drive recommendations and implement solutions. You will do this by collaborating with colleagues across product, tech, sales, operations, design, data science, engineering, and finance in an environment that values your unique insights, encourages you to take on new responsibilities, promotes continuous learning, and rewards innovation. Through our best-in-class analytical practices, you’ll help us quickly identify, build, and test our way to success. 

        In your role, you might:

        • Use modeling and analytics to understand how business decisions impact our bottom line. This may include identifying the right products for the right customers, assessing risks, determining fraud policies, or optimizing our lending practices.

        • Develop hypotheses and set up your own problem frameworks to test for the best solutions. You will also scope the operational feasibility, lead implementation efforts, and monitor the success of your solutions. 

        • Learn how to leverage new tools and technologies. For example, using machine-learning to determine how we lend to customers.

        • Help create new solutions rooted in empathy and research that assist all customers as they work to better manage their finances. 

        The Ideal Candidate Would Be:

You’re organized, are up for juggling multiple deliverables, and prioritize your work while always utilizing data analysis, technology, and human centered design to understand how the solutions you are creating affect your customer. 

        • Fearless & Hardworking- Big, undefined, complex problems will be exciting for you as you work to identify well-rounded solutions. 

        • Passionate & Customer-Focused - You will empathize with those around you and care about their success, as you bring people together around what’s possible. You have the desire and ability to connect and empathize with our customers.

        • Communicative & Inclusive - You always keep the people around you in the loop and are excited to communicate complex ideas clearly to make sure your co-workers understand the “why” behind their work and their key priorities.
