Description

On May 3, 2019, Dr. Aron Ahmadia from Capital One will be on campus to meet with students to discuss career opportunities in machine learning for banking.

Capital One was the first company to develop and offer mass customization and personalization of credit card products, and has been innovating relentlessly ever since. Today, they are a nationally recognized brand, a top 10 bank, and a scientific laboratory on a journey to become a leading high-tech company and digital innovator servicing over 100 million customers. Founder-led by Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Richard Fairbank, Capital One has grown to $22 billion in revenue in just over 20 years.

Full-time positions as Data Scientists and Data Analysts are available to qualified candidates with Masters and Doctoral degrees in a variety of quantitative fields, but with an emphasis on academic and practical experience in statistics and machine learning. Capital One will consider sponsoring a new qualified applicant for employment authorization for these positions. Additionally, Aron's team is hiring Data Engineers, Product Managers, and other talented individuals with a passion to help Reimagine Banking.

Dr. Aron Ahmadia is an alumnus of SEAS (M.S. Applied Physics, 2007, M. Phil. Engineering 2008) and GSAS (Ph.D. Applied Mathematics 2010). He has worked and lectured across a wide variety of continents and industries and served in academia, government, and industry. He is currently serving as the Director for Personalization, Optimization, and Learning in US Card.

Light refreshments will be served


Event Attendance Policy

Columbia Engineering invests a considerable amount of resources to host professional development and leadership workshops because they enhance your experience, knowledge, and marketability. Many of these events have limited seating and we want our students to fully engage. As a result, we ask our students to adhere to the following policy for our offerings (Professional Development and Leadership classes and workshops, School signature events, department events, etc.) so that we can continue to offer and grow these initiatives: for each engagement, you may reserve a seat using Eventbrite. Please check-in at the beginning of the event and engage. If you cannot attend the event, we ask that you cancel at least (2) business days prior so we can offer the seat to another student. For example, for an event held on Monday, please cancel by Thursday, through Eventbrite, so we can give the seat to another student.

Excessive absences without cancellation may result in poor administrative standing. Students in poor administrative standing may not be eligible for the EGSC Professional Development Scholarship, Class Day Graduate Student Speaker or Marshall, Graduate Student Life Award, and other community activities and honors at the School and academic department levels. This may be in addition to any other sanction that your academic department may impose. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
