1,500 Employees Strong
2017 was a rewarding year full of great opportunity, impressive accomplishments and outstanding teamwork. We recently celebrated and reflected on the year, and I could not be more proud and grateful for the hard work and dedication that our Ellie Mae family has consistently shown.
While it’s only the third week into 2018, we’ve already reached an incredible milestone in Ellie Mae’s history that I’m thrilled to share with you today: The announcement of our 1,500th employee. This momentous occasion marks an astounding 650 percent growth since our initial public offering in 2011.
Not only is our company growing in number of employees, but we’re also expanding our offices to accommodate. Last year, with the Grand Opening of our Innovation Center, we increased our presence in Pleasanton, California to create a better, more collaborative work environment with ample space to grow even further. In addition, Ellie Mae now has nine offices across the United States including our headquarters in Pleasanton and eight satellite offices. Our employees make a difference from the moment they start and we work hard to ensure each team has the space to innovate and connect.
Even as we grow, we continue to be recognized as a great place to work in the Bay Area. Last year, Ellie Mae was recognized as a 2017 Bay Area Best Place to Work by the San Francisco Business Times and Silicon Valley Business Journal. Recently, we were honored with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, recognizing the company as a best place to work in 2018. Additionally, Ellie Mae was recognized as one of Fortune’s 100 Fastest Growing Companies in 2017.
We’re thrilled to welcome our 1,500th teammate as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of our company. I’d like to extend my deepest gratitude to our employees who dedicate their unending time and energy to making Ellie Mae a great place to work. Thank you to our customers and partners for being a part of our Ellie Mae story – and for working with us as we continue on our mission to provide a truly digital mortgage that automates everything automatable in the residential mortgage industry.
