Ally and Your Career

Ally Financial only succeeds when its people do - and that's more than some cliche 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.

Our Mobile Tech Lead will manage a team of iOS and Android developers, identify and capitalize on emerging technology trends, and leverage creative and outside thinking to demonstrate the art of the possible within technology. You'll impact millions of customers through your work b uilding the next generation of our award-winning mobile experiences.

The Work Itself

  • Build highly usable features and improvements to Ally mobile applications ensuring that the code follows latest coding practices and industry standards
  • Engage with Product Managers and other stakeholders to create world-class customer experiences for the mobile channel
  • Craft code that meets our internal standards for reusability, style, maintainability and secure best practices for a high-scale digital financial solution. Maintain and advocate for these standards in code reviews
  • Solve technical problems of high scope and complexity.
  • Work in an Agile environment and gain exposure to continuous integration and delivery tools and build consensus regarding project direction.
  • Work cross-functionally to resolve and understand complex technical and design issues
  • Serve as a mentor for junior engineers and peers in the mobile development practice to help them grow in their technical responsibilities and remove blockers


The Skills You Bring

  • 5+ years of development experience in either IOS or Android development.
  • Experience designing and developing cohesive, highly usable iOS/Android native mobile applications
  • Ability to think thoroughly about systems and services and write high quality code. We work mostly in Java, Kotlin, Objective-C, Swift, iOS SDK/Frameworks, REST APIs, and JSON. However, languages can be learned: we care much more about your general engineering skill than knowledge of a particular language or framework.
  • A self-starting mentality and passion for experimentation, with success creating highly performant, optimized websites.
  • Comfort dealing with change and ambiguity, and excitement for moving quickly Deep knowledge and interest in tech concepts, strategies, methodologies, and their application to business opportunities
  • Passion for creating value for the customer, and enthusiasm for Agile processes that help develop these products Desire to work within a diverse group of people and passion for challenging the status quo


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 products, but didn't work on banking products before joining Ally.
