Guaranteed Rate is changing the way people buy homes. In 2015, we introduced the Digital Mortgage SM solution, enabling people to get approved for a loan online in less than 30 minutes. With our low rates and dedication to customer success, we quickly became the eighth largest retail mortgage lender in the country.

We are looking for a .NET engineer with 3-5 years of experience to work onsite with the client team on enhancing Guaranteed Rate's Loan Origination System.

The Financial technology space "Fintech" is booming and Guaranteed Rate is at the center of it. We are growing like crazy, and are one of the most successful Chicago startups. We are focused on automating the mortgage process for consumers. Imagine getting a mortgage with no email, no faxing, no stack of papers in 10 days or less instead of 40 or more! If you have been through the process of buying a home you know how amazing this will be. We are the #8 lender in the country and one of only 2 that is independent (not a bank) so we are in a good spot to win this race. We have already made tremendous strides and we are looking for someone who wants to help us finish the job and disrupt the entire industry. 

 

Who is GR?

Guaranteed Rate is not your typical company and certainly not your typical mortgage company. We are technology driven, have tons of energy and we love what we do – great people and great products alongside our impeccable customer service (83 NPS, unheard of!). We’re in a River North office with exposed brick and duct work, windows we can actually open during the summer. The awesomeness doesn’t end there, we also have:

  • Holiday parties? We got’em! Not just major holidays, any holiday….Mardi Gras, Valentine’s Day, St. Paddy’s Day, Opening Day, Boxing Day (for our Canadian employee), Sweetest Day, Groundhog Day, etc..
  • Game room, library and white board paint for collaboration – yeah, it’s awesome.
  • Access to our free GR nurse practitioner. Psshh who needs a doctor’s appointment when our nurse can do it all? Did we mention the free part?
  • 401k with some matching, Blue Cross health care coverage – yup, dental and vision too, short-term disability, life insurance – we got ya covered on this one, legal assistance – for a small monthly fee.
  • Oh and did we mention you get a big fat employee discount on the origination fees to get a new mortgage or refinance thru Guaranteed Rate?

So what do we want from you?

We are looking for a software engineer experienced in building services and applications using C# but also has experience having branched out into other languages & tools outside the Microsoft stack, including JavaScript/node.js, Clojure or F#, or other languages such as Ruby or Python. We want someone with strong software development fundamentals and experience working with in-house teams in an agile environment. You will be part of our agile software development team that enhances and maintains Guaranteed Rate's LOS. Additionally, we need you to bring your skills to the table but also be ready and interested to learn new technologies outside of .NET, such as node.js/JavaScript development, Clojure, to name a few. This allows our engineering staff to be more well-rounded but also move more fluidly between teams when opportunities arise. In addition, we have teams who work-from-home 1 or 2 days week so if that is important to you, we are right there with you.

What you’ll bring to the table?

  • A minimum 3 years experience with C# and at least 1 other language/platform besides .NET
  • Ability to produce efficient, clean code that is resilient and maintainable
  • Ability to understand business goals, recognize customer needs, and provide pragmatic solutions
  • Good communications skills and a desire to work in a collaborative setting
  • Strong understanding of Object Oriented Programming principles
  • Experience using unit testing frameworks (e.g., NUnit, MSTest, etc)
  • Experience working in agile environments
  • Experience developing REST-based API's
  • Experience with build automation tools (Jenkins, Team City, etc) is a plus
