    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 seeking a people leader responsible for critical digital channels and banking products, operations, and reporting. As the Head of Technology Operations - Digital Channels & Banking Products, you will be a champion for improvements to customer-facing systems and applications with a focus on performance and stability.
