We recently expanded our global footprint in Bangalore, India, and we’re excited to welcome more associates to our growing team! Our new Bangalore office has more than 100 associates across 20+ business functions, including Analytics and Reporting, Data Engineering, Risk Management, Technology and many more!
Our Operations team is the largest in the organization, and spans across several departments and sites. Teams include Enterprise Services (Project Management, Delivery, and Quality), Workforce Management, Maintenance, Security, Credit Processing Centers, and our consumer-facing Care Center associates, leaders, and support roles.
Whether through the development of revolutionary branded marketing and loyalty programs, data-driven marketing and loyalty solutions, or growing and cultivating client relationships, Marketing and Client Partnerships work cohesively to drive success for Alliance Data and our brand partners.
The Predictive Analytics team is responsible for generating data-driven insights to support private label and/or co-brand credit card marketing programs. This is achieved by building sophisticated models to address business problems via advanced quantitative analysis and modeling such as regression, segmentation, decision tree, time series, design of experiments, and other multivariate analyses.
Alliance Data’s IT team focuses on three distinct areas: governance, security, and application development/infrastructure. Responsibilities range from managing critical business processes to ensuring that we have the necessary information security system protocols in place and running smoothly.
This essential group is responsible for the development and application of our organization’s risk strategy, as well as portfolio risk management across our product lines. From analytics to vendor relations to underwriting and account management, the teams oversee a risk-based compliance program that enables the organization to meet our business objectives, protect our assets and cardmembers alike, and maintain the integrity of our banks.
"Alliance Data appealed to me because I get to support brands through creative work, while also being part of a leading Fortune 500 marketing and loyalty company. I have found the talent at Alliance Data to be impressive and the culture fun, inclusive and engaging. This company provides numerous opportunities if you’re motivated to succeed. It’s been a great journey so far, and I’m excited for what’s next."
Director of Creative Communications, Alliance Data
“I joined Alliance Data because I was looking for growth opportunities. Over 6 years, I’ve rotated across various functions in the business and I am using our tuition assistance program to complete my Bachelor’s degree. All of this knowledge and exposure has given me an edge, as now my career path could go in numerous directions.”
Sr. Analyst, Alliance Data
"I couldn’t have asked for a better summer internship experience. I didn’t anticipate building such close relationships with my team members, and I think that speaks volumes to Alliance Data’s unique culture. My experience on the Account Team in Client Partnerships was great – I had exposure to many different areas of the business, and I had the chance to take ownership on real and impactful tasks that directly contributed to the success of my team. I’ll walk away from these 12 weeks a much more well-rounded person, both professionally and personally."
"In my 12 years with Alliance Data, I have already had the opportunity to advance into new positions eight times. You don’t find that type of opportunity everywhere."
Associate Recruiter, Alliance Data
"The team environment and support systems in place at this company warrant recognition. The way they treat their employees is second to none as far as I’m concerned, and I would recommend Alliance Data to anyone. I can’t wait to go back!"

"Part of our culture is promoting, protecting and improving the lives and health of children. Due to a very rare genetic condition my son spends a lot of time at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. I can say as a parent I appreciate the support that Alliance Data provides to NCH and at the same time I am honored to work for a company that truly stands behind our beliefs."
Director of Adaptive Control, Alliance Data
"Throughout my summer I have gotten exposure to the great leadership here, responsibility on projects to support my team and the rest of the organization, and opportunities to network with professionals in many different departments as well as recent college grads and all the other interns in our class! The overall culture here is very relaxed, leaders are down to earth, and people are always willing to help you grow and develop."
"My foundation at Alliance Data was built on my experience with my direct supervisor. Like many supervisors, she never gave up on me and she helped me grow. If I was in the Customer Retention Associate trenches, so was she! Today, I am a Customer Retention Specialist and I have had the opportunity to present best practices in meetings, be a peer mentor, be a talent scout and a team captain. Not even the sky is the limit at Alliance Data.”

"The ICE program was the perfect transition from college into the working world—it helped us to learn the business, experience different teams, and develop as working professionals. I was given so many opportunities to learn from the best, give back to the community, and, have fun! The social experience was one of my favorite aspects of ICE—coming into a new, unfamiliar world with a group of people in the same shoes made all of the difference."

Global Analytics, Alliance Data
"Throughout my ICE experience, I met, learned from, and became great friends with my coworkers here at Alliance Data. I had the opportunity to learn about Alliance Data’s values, the financial drivers that impact our business, and how to successfully launch myself into a career right outside of college – all within the first 6 months. I truly appreciate the ICE program and the knowledge and network I gained from it."

"My internship at Alliance Data was everything I could have asked for in an internship. I had exposure into the corporate world, learned about workplace etiquette, had an amazing group of peers to learn with and gained so much knowledge that I was able to take back to college and apply to my final year of classes. In my ICE experience, I was immediately engaged in projects that were business priorities. I immediately felt like I was dong valued work for my team, and I felt that I was truly growing as an individual contributor and I gained strong confidence in myself."

Client Partnerships, Alliance Data
"I joined Alliance Data out of college and like most young professionals, I wasn’t completely sure where I wanted to take my career. The ICE program was a great transition from full time student to full time working professional as it allows you to get your footing in the company and establish connections with mentors and peers from day one. The program exposed me to multiple sides of the business I would not have seen otherwise, and it set me up for success when I was placed in my permanent role."
