In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

You state that you are a “Mainframes System Administrator” and your job description includes adding space and allocating data to the storage disk box of a bank (Capital One).

Since the job profile is unrelated to interest/usury, it is permissible for you to accept the employment.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
