Ally and Your Career

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

  • Hardworking auditors are constant learners. Curiosity drives them - it's why they began their audit journey in the first place. Using a growth mindset is what fuels their fascination by understanding the financial services industry and its regulations and how it applies to each business unit at Ally. We get that. In this role, you'll work within a collaborative agile environment, use your critical thinking skills for completing assigned technology audit activities. Also, an individual would need to be flexible and adaptable to constantly evolving demands and bring to the role a results-oriented approach and a strong ability to learn.

The Work Itself

  • You will partner with Ally technology and cyber leaders, working cross-functionally to enhance the audit experience and promote visibility and partnership.

  • You will supervise team members assigned to audit projects; typically leading one audit at a time and including work paper review.

  • You will proactively lead work assignments to promote execution within established budgets and achievements.

  • You will own the development, execution, and documentation of technology audit tests and issue validations in accordance with Audit Services policies and procedures.

  • You will facilitate the vetting of potential audit findings, identifying root causes, and articulating their relevance.

  • You will coordinate timely execution of issues validations in accordance with Audit Services policies and procedures.

  • Your meaningful, constructive feedback on work performed will assist in the training and/or mentoring of less experienced staff members.

  • Your use of data literacy and analytics will provide consultation to management regarding emerging control practices across all areas of Ally technology.

  • Your proactive communication skills with management and peers will drive alignment to mitigate customer service issues before they occur.

  • Your technical knowledge, creativity and improved mentality will be crucial when performing projects as assigned to assist with analyzing Ally's risk and control environment.

  • Your participation in Audit Transformation initiatives will be essential to the continued improvement to the enterprise and its continuing role within Ally business.

The Skills You Bring

  • A desire to creatively identify problems that potentially were not known to exist and provide solutions and/or recommendations.

  • Lead in a way that promotes a positive image of Audit Services and builds rapport with clients and risk partners.

  • Strong understanding of risk mitigation to ensure achievement of industry/regulatory standards, identify root causes, and conduct project risk assessments. Eye for business and understanding of the industry, company, and products to promote achievement of objectives and goals.

  • Proactively challenge the status quo.

  • Be adaptable to change and ambiguity.

  • Be open to feedback and continuous learning.

  • Be self-aware, understanding of own strengths and weaknesses.

  • Be resilient, composed and focused under pressure.

  • Be an active listener.

  • Good writing and verbal communications.

  • Demonstrated ability to collaborate and work cooperatively to build trust and promote consensus with others.

  • Curiosity, passion, and the skills for technology.

  • Analytical attitude - think before you leap.

  • 4+ years of work experience in audit or financial services.

  • Relevant 4-year degree or comparable combination of education and experience (including military service).

  • Relevant certification (CISA, CISSP, CIA, CPA, etc.), is a plus.

  • Experience using ACL and Teammate or other Computer Assisted Audit Techniques (CAATs), again a plus.
