Ally Tech Labs is testing different technologies, helping Ally Financial solve business problems and fueling them with innovative products and services to meet the expectations of the bank’s customers. Harish Naik who heads the labs tell Qorus more about it. 

Tell us briefly about Ally Tech Labs. What year was the lab created? In which city is it located? How many people work there?

Ally Tech Labs, based in Charlotte, North Carolina, was founded in 2020 with a mission to accelerate adoption of new technologies and solve complex problems for Ally. We tackle the hard problems which are often not well defined, but when solved, they can accelerate and elevate the entire organization. We promote a culture of engineering excellence and partner heavily with business and strategy teams to define success. The initial Tech Labs initiatives allow us to experiment with contemporary technologies, bring industry learnings and define art of the possible within the world of technology.

We have six associates dedicated to Tech Labs. Everyone has extensive experience working on various technology platforms. They are ready to challenge the status quo, they do not hesitate to take risks while also taking a pragmatic approach to initiatives, and they enjoy the challenge of working on abstract concepts. We also add relevant experts as needed to augment the team.
