Professional development


If you’re passionate about what you do, you do it well and you don’t mind the work. At Ellie Mae, we do everything with passion–whether we are planning a user conference, launching a new service, or creating the next new feature to enable compliance with changing industry standards. We were founded with a laser-sharp focus– to create solutions that wring unnecessary effort, time and expense out of the process of making loans. We make it easier and more profitable for lenders and mortgage professionals to help people buy homes–a goal that’s at the very core of American culture. How can we not be passionate about that?

Are we innovative? Oh, yes! In fact, that’s an understatement. We lead the industry in technology, solutions and vision, and our thought leadership is widely recognized. Take a look at some of the recent recognition we’ve received:

  • Deloitte’s 2013 Technology Fast 500
  • 2013 Lenders’ Choice Mortgage Technology Award
  • Ranked #272 on the 2013 Software 500
  • Mortgage Technology Top 50 Service Providers, 2007-2013

The Ellie Mae family is smart, professional, creative and caring. We nurture personal and professional growth, and place tremendous value on ideas and ingenuity. Our goal is to remove barriers to innovation, and create an environment that fosters outside-the-box kind of thinking, so we can take our solutions to the next level.

Such an environment also requires a balance of life and work, and our management team strives to make sure employees their personal lives don’t suffer as they work to advance their careers. Team bonding events and corporate-wide celebrations are a regular part of Ellie Mae culture, and when we party, we do it up right.

We also encourage regular community involvement through our volunteer organization, EllieCares. Through this program, we serve the community with regular events and fundraisers, and we even pay employees to volunteer their time to a cause in the community one day per quarter. Check out some of our most recent efforts to give back.

Full medical, dental and vision benefits are provided to full-time employees, along with stock option grants upon hire, an employee stock purchase program, annual bonuses based on performance, pre-tax dependent care and healthcare accounts, and a generous PTO policy. Learn more.

We want your career at Ellie Mae to be inspiring and fulfilling. Our goal is to motivate you to hone your existing skills and develop new ones. That’s why we encourage employees at every level to actively pursue continued education. We support on-going learning by providing a variety of resources ranging from online self-guided courses to external courses and conferences. Additional opportunities are available to members of our technology community who would like to advance their careers without assuming managerial responsibilities. For those who want to pursue a degree, we offer tuition programs.


What Our Clients Say

"Sometimes problems take five or six days to fix in post-closing, when you could have fixed it in five minutes up front if you knew about it. Encompass gives us the visibility we need to identify problems early, so in the end, there’s really nothing to do but close the loan."
