Who We Are

Transform an Industry. Transform Your Career.

 

We’re constantly innovating the mortgage industry, so we’re constantly looking for flexible, curious minds that thrive when collaborating to solve complex problems.

 

And once those problems are solved, they’re ready for whatever’s next.

 

On the Technology team, when you’re not busy revolutionizing the mortgage industry with the technology that you create, you’ll get personal time each week to work on whatever tech projects you want.

 

If you’re ready to transform an industry and transform your career, we want to hear from you. 

 

What You'll Do/Need

The Harvard Business Review characterized “Data Scientist” as the “Sexiest Job of the 21st Century,” and with good reason.

Why We're Different

 

Corporate politics not your strong suit? The anti-corporate culture of Quicken Loans gives our team members the initiative to build solutions together and grow both personally and professionally. At Quicken Loans, we’re in the business of putting roofs over our clients’ heads, but we certainly aren’t putting ceilings on our team members’ careers. If you’re interested in working in a place with a philosophy that’s truly different, apply today.

 

Quicken Loans is an equal opportunity employer.
