Who We Are

We’re America’s largest mortgage lender, closing loans in all 50 states. J.D. Power ranked Quicken Loans “Highest in Customer Satisfaction in Primary Mortgage Origination” for the past nine consecutive years, 2010 – 2018. The company was also ranked highest in the nation for client satisfaction among mortgage servicers by J.D. Power for five consecutive years, 2014 through 2018, each year the company was eligible. There’s a simple reason we’ve been so successful: We care about the people we work with.

If you’re tired of stuffy, bureaucratic workplaces, then you’ll be delighted to find something different here. We strive to make a creative, fun and collaborative environment you simply won’t find anywhere else. Quicken Loans was named #1 in ESSENCE Magazine’s first ever list of “Best Places to Work for African Americans” in 2015.

We are a team of collaborative InfoSec professionals who are always pushing ourselves and each other to grow. Most of our time is spent doing the research, digging into the problem-statements, building the standards, and collaborating with delivery, implementation, and business teams to build secure solutions. We do not configure SIEMs, Firewalls, IDP, etc. – that’s our Technical Engineers. Speaking of our InfoSec team: it’s comprised of Consulting Engineers, Technical Engineers, Analysts, Evangelists, and Pen Testers. We are a diverse group of individuals with varying backgrounds and perspectives, unified by a love for technology and security. We work hard, play hard, and dress casual!
