Tyler Underwood is an eager technologist, MSU Spartan, and above average recreational athlete. He has spent the majority of his career as an engineer automating his way out of past jobs because he despised doing the same manual task more than once. In his current role as a Technology Team Leader at Quicken Loans, Tyler is heavily invested on the growth and development of individuals on a software development team. He is also responsible for leading strategic projects and initiatives that ultimately result in bettering the client experience of working with Quicken Loans. Outside of work, you will find Tyler playing in various sports leagues, hanging out with his favorite (and only) niece, and creatively finding a reason to compete at just about anything. Yes, even a pogo-stick competition.
As a team member of the Quicken Loans Family of Companies, you become part of a family of over 33,000 team members in 160+ companies across 15 different industries such as Finance, Technology, Real Estate, Sports, Media, Entertainment, Venture Capital, Property Management, Publishing and Gaming. Quicken Loans is at the heart of it all – what started as a “summer experiment” for our owner Dan Gilbert has now turned into the largest residential mortgage lender in the country with offices in Detroit, MI, Cleveland, OH, Phoenix, AZ and more. How have we done it? Well, we’ve never been a company to follow a leader or to jump on the latest bandwagon. For the past 32 years we have worked better, smarter, faster and the results speak for themselves: we were the first lender to go digital with Rocket Mortgage; we’ve been rated #1 in customer satisfaction for eight years running by JD Power; we continue to revolutionize the industry, bringing disruptive technologies to market improving Americans’ financial lives; including integrating with Amazon’s Alexa so our clients can make their mortgage payments with the sound of their voice. We have all the experience with none of the complexity. What’s the key to our success? Our team members. Talk to anyone of them and you’ll find a spirit of tenacity and empowerment that makes us stronger and more inventive. We bring our A-game all day, every day and that’s the reason we’ve been able to scale and innovate so quickly. Our unique culture ensures every team members’ opinion is respected and heard; most importantly our leaders are invested in making sure that you have access and opportunity to grow your skills and become the best version of yourself. Which is why for 15 years in a row, from 2003 to 2018, we have been named one of America’s top-15 best places to work in FORTUNE Magazine’s annual ranking of the “100 Best Companies to Work For.” What makes us special? We believe in the power of our purpose. That starts with changing the lives of our clients by making the complicated mortgage and refinancing process radically simple. We are purposeful when it comes to social responsibility and the power of communities we live, work and play in. We provide team members with the opportunity to volunteer and make a difference for programs you’re passion about. Our purpose is also defined by continuing to revolutionize the mortgage industry, powered by our company-wide obsession with finding a better way – it’s what fuels our fire and keeps us focused. We are Quicken Loans and we are Powered by Purpose.
