Fannie Mae was recently named among the 100 Best Places to Work in IT for 2018 by IDG's Computerworld, a technology media brand. The government-sponsored enterprise (GSE) was ranked 47th among large organizations on this list, which recognizes the world's 100 top organizations that challenge their technology professionals while providing great benefits and ample development opportunities.
"Our developers, coders, engineers, and other technology professionals are delivering the 21st-century products and tools our customers need," said Kimberly Johnson, COO, Fannie Mae. "Fannie Mae's vital mission to provide access to reliable, affordable mortgage financing in all markets at all times is enabled by our employees in IT, whose work is transforming the housing market every day. We are continually focused on making it faster and simpler to get a mortgage."
According to a statement released by Fannie Mae, the technology teams at the GSE are "driving innovation across the industry through new services, solutions, and agile methods for designing and developing solutions.
“Over the past couple of years, we've seen an already tight market for tech talent get even tighter,” said Ken Mingis, Executive Editor at Computerworld. “Computerworld's 2018 Best Places to Work in IT list illustrates that the companies that offer the best working environments aren't satisfied with rolling out one or two initiatives. They seek an edge in the talent marketplace through a combination of good salaries, great benefits, ready access to training, and the deployment of cutting-edge technologies. ”
The rankings are compiled based on a comprehensive questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories such as benefits, career development, training, and retention. Additionally, Computerworld conducts extensive surveys of lT workers, and their responses factor heavily in determining the rankings.
Fannie Mae invests a great deal of time, energy, and resources into giving employees the tools and training they need to develop the technologies necessary to simplify the mortgage process and provide a better overall experience for our customers and home buyers. This includes building partnerships with leading organizations dedicated to developing the diverse leaders of tomorrow, including Hispanic IT Executive Council, IT Senior Management Forum, Women in Technology, and Ascend. The GSE is also a leader in Agile and DevOps.
