The Program: Defined.

The Allstate Technology Leadership Development Program (TLDP) is designed to build versatile leaders by providing cross-functional experience through three rotations in different areas of the organization. Two rotations take place in Allstate Technology and Strategic Ventures and one rotation aligns to a specific business area outside of ATSV (Claims, Sales, Marketing, Product Operations, etc). This approach not only exposes participants to our technology operations but also builds business acumen and leadership experience – knowledge that is imperative for successful leadership at Allstate.

TLDP participants get involved in meaningful, high-exposure assignments during their rotations. Current and previous assignment examples include:

  • Developing architecture and infrastructure to support digital transformation
  • Building innovative self-service solutions that maximize the customer experience
  • Partnering with business teams to develop and deploy transformative technology solutions to provide the best products and services to Allstate customers
  • Working on new and emerging technologies that are shaping the future including, Extreme Programming, Rapid Product Prototyping, Scrum, Data Analytics, and Machine learning
  • Solving complex business and technology problems by providing simple, creative, innovative and cost effective solutions
  • Leading projects or managing teams

The Opportunity: Unlike Any Other.

By seeing the organization from three perspectives, TLDP participants build stronger networks and have a better understanding of how the company functions as a whole. This program sets participants up for success by giving them this rare experience to help accelerate their career at Allstate.

Participants will have the opportunity to jump-start their career through the following opportunities:

  • Three 1-year structured rotations in different areas of the business (two rotations in technology, one rotation outside of technology)
  • Assignments that involve people management, financial management, project management, client-facing work, operations, strategy, change management, and technical skill development

  • A week-long orientation to introduce the program and allow participants to connect with each other before beginning their rotations
  • Two formal learning conferences each year with experiential learning opportunities and exposure to key leaders
  • Formal mentoring relationships with experienced Allstate Leaders as well as a peer mentor during the program
  • Opportunities to get to know our nonprofit partners and to volunteer within and outside of Allstate
