National Home Lender Appears In Top Rankings On Survey for 7th Consecutive Year
DETROIT, MICH. – June 20, 2011 – Quicken Loans Inc., the nation’s largest online retail mortgage lender, today announced it has placed in the top-10 of Computerworld Magazine’s “100 Best Places to Work in Technology” study. This is the seventh consecutive year Quicken Loans has been listed in the magazine’s annual survey, ranking among the top-15 each year.
Computerworld’s “Best Places to Work in Technology” list is determined through a comprehensive questionnaire about company perks spanning categories such as benefits, diversity, career development, training and retention. This year, Computerworld surveyed thousands of technology professionals and their responses factored heavily in determining the overall rankings.
“Our technology team is the lifeblood of our organization – they are part of nearly every decision we make, and are invaluable in helping us deliver an amazing experience to our clients all across the country,” said Quicken Loans CEO Bill Emerson. “In an industry with ever-changing guidelines and regulations, our technology team continues to give us the competitive edge to provide our clients the fastest, easiest mortgage experience possible.”
Quicken Loans’ technology team plays a major role in the company, creating nearly every piece of software the company uses to originate mortgages. The loan origination system created a major advantage for the company and is a major driver behind Quicken Loans consistently closing loans faster than its competitors.
“Our people are talented, diverse and really enjoy what they do, which is instrumental in our success as a team and as a company,” said Linglong He, Quicken Loans Chief Information Officer. “And as technology continues to play an even bigger role in our company, we have been able to expand our team without losing the sense of family.”
The magazine’s full list of companies will be published in the July issue and is available online at www.computerworld.com. Quicken Loans also has ranked among the “Top-30” of FORTUNE Magazine’s list of the “100 Best Companies to Work for in America” for eight consecutive years.
