Our Leadership Development Program (LDP) is a foundational global initiative focused on developing generational talent for ION Group’s growing operations. The program provides an opportunity for outstanding college graduates to start a career in a dynamic and fast paced global fintech and automation provider.
The Technical LDP program lasts 18 months, starting with an induction program where we will introduce you to our company, products and technologies. Post induction, you will progress through 3 rotations in our development teams, working on our products across the full development lifecycle. At the end of the 18-month program analysts will then decide whether to pursue a development focused track or to explore other areas of the business.
Sample roles include:
· User Experience
· Product Management
· Client Services
ION operates as a truly global organization, providing analysts the opportunity to work with teams and customers across the world. Traditionally, cross-cultural professional development has been a key pillar of the program. We hope and expect to resume analyst rotations and projects abroad when it is safe to do so.
