Yes, we’re a bank! We’re pretty proud of that. But don’t let that conjure up images of legacy applications and server farms. Behind our banking websites and apps is a modern tech infrastructure that’s putting the “tech” in “technically, it’s a bank.” Don’t take our word for it, take Topo, Raji, and Sam’s. We sat down with these three associates to get a feel for what brought them to Capital One and what they’ve built since joining. In their own words:
Topo created an open source dashboard used by 160 companies. And he did it at Capital One.
Is your company using Hygieia? If so, you’re in good company. Since launching in 2015 this open source DevOps dashboard has taken off - with over 3.2k stars and 1.6k forks on GitHub. And it all started as an internal tool by Capital One’s Topo Pal. We asked Topo a couple questions about his work at Capital One.

You might not expect chaos engineering from a bank. But then again, chaos engineering is all about the unexpected.
Raji Chockaiyan has been at the forefront of our work on developing cutting edge DevOps processes here at Capital One. From creating tools for chaos engineering, secret management, CICD pipeline orchestration, infrastructure provisioning and engineering excellence she’s rethinking what it means to build software for enterprise developers. Remember her name - you’re going to be hearing more about her work in chaos engineering in 2020.

What’s a Google Developer Expert for Android and Kotlin doing at a “credit card company?”Just ask Sam Edwards.
It takes a lot of technical expertise to build the Android apps that millions of people rely on to access their banking and financial information. Sam Edwards is one of the engineers bringing that expertise to our flagship mobile application. Aside from his deep knowledge of Kotlin and Android development, he’s also an adept handstand practitioner. No, really.
