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?

We work among business stakeholders, technology leadership and subject matter experts to analyze, design, build and implement the capabilities needed within the organization.

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.

  • Ability to thoroughly understand the business issues surrounding each project.
  • Think about systems and services and write high quality code. We work mostly in Java, Spring framework, REST and/or Web services. We care much more about your general engineering skill than knowledge of a particular language or framework.
  • Desire to work within a diverse group of people and passion for challenging the status quo
  • Experience with rapid, iterative development cycles and continuous integration and continuous deployment technologies.
  • Experience in Terraform scripting and building AWS cloud native applications is a plus.
