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.

The Cloud FinOps Engineer delivers quality code and solutions within Ally’s public cloud environment. They continuously innovate and improve our path on cloud financial controls and optimization, while helping drive a culture of accountability regarding efficient cloud usage / spend. 

The Work Itself

  • Design and implement scalable analytic solutions around cloud costs and compliance
  • Implement solutions that anticipate and react to cost changes in Ally's public cloud environment
  • Implement automation that validates controls for costs, budgets, and compliance
  • Implement solutions that make staying under budget easy for other teams
  • Work with others on the team, taking initiative and direction to ensure the consolidation and refinement of our data architecture
  • Synthesizing of analysis and research into strategic insights and practical recommendations
  • Partners with cloud engineers, information security, core infrastructure teams and application developers to enable agility through best-in-class automation
  • Learn and lead by example in a team of highly skilled, talented Cloud Engineers
  • Collaborate and partner with counterparts in Security, Enterprise Architecture, and CIO application teams
  • Champion a collaborative development approach in tune with our Agile methodology that encourages and accepts cross-team contributions and emphasizes transparency
  • Assist with the architecture and implementation of infrastructure-as-code and policy-as-code objectives

The Skills You Bring

  • Deep understanding of cloud-based services usage and pricing; AWS
  • Unique ability to bridge finance and technology
  • Experience with hands on technical implementations in the public cloud 
  • Experience connecting to APIs through programming languages to automate data collection
  • 3+ years of experience with cloud engineering and development
  • Architecting solutions that help foster data transparency in the public cloud
  • A background in data structures, data gathering, and data enrichment
  • Experience with Python or another similar scripting language
  • Experience gathering and merging data from separate APIs to help build enriched data collections
  • Experienced with databases (NoSQL or relational) and other ways to store data (S3, etc); able to construct a cohesive and scalable data architecture
  • Experience with testing your code and automating those tests
  • Good facilitation and influencing skills; strong collaborative mindset
It’s not expected that any single candidate would fulfill all these characteristics. For instance, we have wonderful team members who are really focused on their customers’ needs and building continuously available environments, but didn’t work on banking systems before joining Ally. We encourage you to apply if you're interested in this Cloud FinOps Engineer role!
