10 Best Places To Work In IT: Quicken Loans Stays At The Top

Quicken Loans was ranked as the nation's best place to work in IT for the fifth straight year. In fact, by taking home top ranks in IDG's Computerworld Best Places to Work, the Detroit-based company can boast being the top IT employer for the eighth time overall.

Computerworld ranks the 100 best work environments for technology professionals and is based on a questionnaire regarding company culture, with an emphasis on benefits, career development, training and retention.

Quicken's IT employs 1,500 members and is considered to be a major force behind the company's rapid growth. The country's first ever online and on-demand mortgage experience, Rocket Mortgage, was an initiative mostly driven by Quicken's technology team and funded $7 billion of the total $96 billion in total closed loan volume last year.

Since moving to downtown Detroit in 2010, the city has become a notable fintech hub with many technology companies opening in the booming urban core.

"We are absolutely obsessed with creating a culture that promotes a sense of family, while also encouraging our team to innovate and push the envelope," said Linglong He, Chief Information Officer for Quicken Loans. "It is a recipe that has worked tremendously well, as our team continues to set the speed of the game when it comes to creating the best FinTech products in the industry.

"Beyond innovation, our team is extremely active in the community, teaching STEM projects to students at the Detroit Public Schools on a regular basis. When you pair the innovation that is taking place at Quicken Loans with the social impact we are having on the community, it is an immensely powerful thing."
