Plano Town Center (31064), United States of America, Plano, Texas Senior Manager, Senior Counsel - Business Counsel Financial Services Legal Team

As a Senior Counsel on the Financial Services Legal Team, you will apply your strategic and analytical skills to major challenges and significant business initiatives as a member of Capital One’s Financial Services (“FS”) Division. Capital One’s FS Division is headquartered in Plano, TX, and is a leader and pioneer in the auto finance and technology industries specializing in the delivery of AI, machine learning, and other tech-enabled solutions to dealerships, businesses, and consumers alike.

As a member of the FS Legal Team, you will partner with a passionate and customer-centric business that is fueling the future of one of the nation’s largest indirect auto-finance companies. Within this role, you’ll be a true counselor to the business and have the opportunity to advise analysts, technologists, designers, and marketers across FS who are tasked with strategizing and building innovative solutions to division-wide challenges and designing products and content central to helping cultivate Capital One’s iconic and nationally-recognized brand.

You will help to identify risks and problem solve alongside a team of world-class professionals charged with deploying strategies that ultimately impact the bottom line. You will roll up your sleeves and help build innovative digital products and services, while counseling the business on all things from strategy, data, risk, talent, and inclusion. And you'll do it all in a collaborative environment that values your insight, encourages you to take on new responsibility, promotes continuous learning, and rewards innovation and intellectual curiosity. In addition to joining our vibrant Capital One family, you will position yourself for what will be an exciting career with a leading player in the financial services industry, while teaming with a diverse group of individuals at an organization that cares greatly for, and gives back to, the communities it serves.

A successful candidate will display:

  • Strong executive communication skills

  • Impeccable written and oral communication credentials

  • Strategic-influencing skills and the ability to drive consensus across diverse teams through exercising sound judgment and employing interpersonal and negotiation capabilities

  • The ability to take complex ideas/problems and break them down into simple and digestible concepts/solutions

  • A successful track record of thriving and leading with heart, hunger, humility, and horsepower in a fast-paced, entrepreneurial, and dynamic environment.

Specific responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Strategic Advice: Understanding technology, the auto finance business, and the rapidly evolving landscapes for both, fostering innovation through an understanding of the applicable laws, and charting a course for rolling out, marketing, selling, and negotiating agreements for innovative products where no clear roadmap exists. You’ll drill down into how we do what we do, and why we do what we do, so we can build a better way.

  • Translating: Understanding the law (e.g., data privacy, IP, antitrust, TILA/Reg Z, ECOA/Reg B, FCRA/Reg V, UDAAP), understanding the business and the auto industry, knowing the technology itself (APIs, AI, OSS, machine learning) and exhibiting an innate desire to learn along with it. You’ll appreciate dynamic business intent, regulatory requirements, and legal guardrails and best practices, fluidly transition between legalese and developer speak, and do so comfortably with analysts and senior executives alike.

  • Business ownership: Working hand-in-hand with the business to solve problems in flight. You’ll need an ownership mindset and to view yourself as part of the business team. You don’t need to know everything about everything, but you’ll have a thirst to understand what you’re reading about – a “learning mindset” – that focuses on how to change the world in awesome ways rather than merely reciting statutes and regulations.

  • Partnering to Foster Innovation: Collaborating closely with colleagues across the Legal Department to fully vet and scale risk. You’ll work to push responsible innovation in challenging gray areas. We place a high value on intellectual curiosity, particularly when combined with a “we’ll figure out a way” attitude.

Basic Qualifications:

  • Juris Doctor from an accredited law school

  • Active member in good standing of at least one state bar

  • At least 6 years of experience in a law firm environment or as in-house counsel for a Fortune 500 company as a litigator or advising on regulatory compliance

Preferred Qualifications:

  • 3+ years of experience in advising financial-services or technology companies

  • 3+ years of experience working as an attorney on data, marketing, product development, or technology

  • Experience advising companies on matters of regulatory compliance, including with UDAAP, the FCRA, GLBA, ECOA, and TILA

  • Ability to work effectively both in teams and independently, make effective and integrated decisions, and collaborate effectively at all levels in the company

  • Ability to deal with ambiguous situations, complex concepts, and details

  • Excellent written and oral communication skills with the ability to influence others

  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills
