Congratulations to Ellie Mae's Jonathan Corr, president and CEO, and Joe Tyrrell, EVP Corporate Strategy, who have both been named by Mortgage Professional America to their annual Hot 100. The list profiles the movers and shakers redefining the mortgage industry.
Technology that Powers the American Dream
Our goal, we call it our North Star, is to automate everything automatable in the residential mortgage industry.
Hear our President and CEO, Jonathan Corr ask employees to think bigger in the above video.
At Ellie Mae, we believe that our purpose is tied to how our technology helps lenders deliver a mortgage faster and at a lower cost, that we make it possible for lenders, partners, and borrowers to connect as part of the same community, and that we work together to help a borrower—maybe it’s a millennial, maybe it’s a family—get a home of their own.
There’s more to our story. There’s a bigger purpose to who we are. We’re a fintech industry leader powering the American Dream.

I have been working at Ellie Mae full-time (Less than a year)
There a strong sense of community in this company. The senior management makes a point of being engaged with all employees; Ellie Mae makes giving back to the community part of being an employee; everyone is helpful to new comers.
My direct management has been very supportive of my ramping up work and with training to become knowledgeable in the industry and become a better trainer.
Ellie Mae is, by far, the most diverse technology company that I have worked with (and I've worked with a few). And diverse at all levels.
Ellie Mae is the market leader and has devised a "shared success" strategy for its customers. When Ellie Mae customers make more money, Ellie Mae makes more money. So customers are very satisfied with Ellie Mae.
Ellie Mae is growing fast (which is good). But with that growth in size, old processes that worked with a company of 500 are being strained with a company of 1500.
Advice to Management
We are growing fast. Make sure we've got the internal processes and infrastructure to handle all our new employees smoothly.
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Ellie Mae (Pleasanton, CA) in August 2017.
Entire process was in three main stages.
1. Recruiter screening - Here they just want to know what your interested in and match you accordingly to a team.
3. Onsite - 4 technical rounds
