Ally and Your Career

Ally Financial only succeeds when its people do - and that’s more than some cliché people put on job postings. We live this stuff! We see our people as, well, people - with interests, families, friends, dreams, and causes that are all important to them. Our focus is on the health and safety of our teammates as well as work-life balance and diversity and inclusion. From generous benefits to a variety of employee resource groups, we strive to build paths that encourage employees to stretch themselves professionally. We want to help you grow, develop, and learn new things. You’re constantly evolving, so shouldn’t your opportunities be, too?

The Opportunity

At Ally, you get a startup feel, but experience the benefits of a company that’s worked out the kinks and is fulfilling its purpose. We’re always evolving and see that as a good thing. From owning our work to seeing its impact in the real world, our team is relentless in finding new ways technology can help make experiences better and help people. We are problem solvers, we value diverse thinking, we support one another, and we challenge ourselves to think bigger in the journey to deliver customer-obsessed tech solutions.

As a Data Engineer at Ally, you’ll work closely with agile teams to build high quality data pipelines and drive analytic solutions.  These solutions allow us to generate insights and make data-driven decisions in real-time and drive impact immediately.

The Work Itself

  • Think outside of the box on a daily basis to promote data-driven decision making through the capture of data and development of innovative solutions
  • Define, develop, test, and implement a portfolio of best-in-class data tools that contribute directly to the success of Ally’s strategic, technical, and business initiatives
  • Create data platform artifacts including data models, data flow processes and integrations
  • Collaborate with program managers, engineers, data scientists and business partners and drive the management, refinement, and utilization of data models, systems and platforms
  • Actively problem solve to and seek out information to keep the team on track and voice opinions on the most effective way forward

The Skills You Bring

  • Expertise in data warehousing, modeling principles/methods including conceptual, logical & physical Data Models. Deep understanding of different modeling patterns including Data Vault, Dimensional Star-Schema, 3NF, etc.
  • Experience in data wrangling, translating/mapping relational data models into XML, JSON Schemas and vise-versa. Proficient in querying skills on traditional relational and no-sql databases
  • Working understanding of Microsoft cloud stack, including but not limited to, Azure SQL, Synapse, Data Lake, Data Factory, Databricks, Azure function, Service Bus, etc.
  • Experience with object-oriented programming (C#, Java or Python)
  • Desire to work within a diverse group of people and passion for challenging the status quo
  • Strong work ethic and drive with an enthusiasm for owning your work and driving development
It’s not expected that any single candidate would fulfil all of these characteristics. For instance, we have wonderful team members who are really focused on their customers’ needs and building incredible data models, but didn’t work on banking products before joining Ally.
