WHO WE ARE:

Discover is more than a credit card. At its core, Discover is a software company. Our customers and Partners demand products/services that help them spend smarter and achieve a brighter financial future. These products/services are built and supported by our software teams.

One customer. The person using the product is who matters.

Teams get it done. You won't be sitting in a corner on your own - it's a collective effort.

Seek to understand. Listen first, ask why, and then reach a conclusion.

Progress over perfection. Try new ideas and be comfortable with failing fast.

No spectators. Expect to tackle tough problems and to challenge the status quo.
