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.

We are looking for a talented and trustworthy vulnerability analyst to help remediate security vulnerabilities on technology infrastructure and applications. Primary responsibilities include providing subject matter expertise for the resolution of vulnerabilities, assisting in solving problems that prevent technology teams from patching vulnerabilities, and escalating instances of non-compliance to vulnerability remediation timelines.

The ideal candidate in this role must be able to bridge the gap between technology professionals who patch computers and risk management practices by using their knowledge of system administration to troubleshoot sticking points in patching processes.  The candidate is self-motivated to soundly reduce vulnerability risk through persistent analysis, research, and investigation.

To ensure success, the candidate should have advanced knowledge of computer and internet security systems and the ability to automate processes, reporting, and governance activities. Candidates do NOT need to have experience in every platform, OS, or enterprise business application, but should have a well-rounded set of technology knowledge.

The Work Itself

  • Analyze vulnerabilities and connect with technology teams to put in place action plans for their resolution, seeking opportunities that will best reduce the most risk for the lowest cost in terms of effort and time
  • Be a responsive and helpful engagement point for technology teams attempting to resolve their vulnerabilities
  • Create and distribute vulnerability reports for key stakeholders
  • Follow escalation procedures when vulnerability remediation expectations are not met
  • Assist with enhancing configuration baseline documentation for common company technologies
  • Be able to work independently and when problems arise that require management engagement, be able to offer recommended solutions
  • Ability to interact with company personnel at all levels and across all business units to comprehend business imperatives. A strong customer/client focus, with the ability to manage expectations appropriately, to provide a superior customer/client experience and build long-term relationships
  • Develop tools that improve the effectiveness or efficiency of vulnerability testing and reporting

The Skills You Bring

Requirements:
  • 5+ years of experience of Technology vulnerability experience
  • Proven work experience with vulnerability scanners such as Qualys or Rapid7
  • Experience with enterprise configuration management systems such as ServiceNow
  • Systems administration experience on common operating systems such as Windows or Red Hat Linux
  • Solid understanding of a variety of common server, middleware, OR desktop class applications such as java JDKs, Adobe products, and Apache products
  • Solid understanding of cloud and container technologies, platforms, and environments
  • Clear understanding of enterprise-class application, network, and infrastructure security architecture
  • Passionate analytical skills with the ability to manage multiple demands under challenging timelines
  • Basic scripting abilities to better process data or to help automate patching jobs in languages such as Python, JavaScript, or PowerShell
  • Strong writing skills to produce detailed reports for consumption by stakeholders at all levels from operations to executive

Desired Skillset, Experience and/or Training:
  • Security+, CISSP, or similar security certifications
  • System administration certifications such as RHCSA or MCSE
  • Bachelor’s degree in Information Technology or Computer Science, or equivalent experience
  • The ability to adapt to new situations, natural curiosity, and the desire to learn and stay current with security trends, threats, and risks
