"Before, I never got to see that. I was just an IT guy," Gupta says.
And last year when his wife was pregnant with their first child, Gupta says he especially valued the company's flexibility in where and when he worked.
"Working from home is a big perk. When my wife needed me, I was there and could still contribute to work," he says.
This year, he and his wife, their families plus members of Gupta's software team will celebrate his daughter's first birthday together at a party at his home. "My good friends are here," he says.
It was a friend of a friend who recommended Cong Fan to Quicken Loans almost 17 years ago. She started as a programmer/software engineer, then became intrigued by databases and data-intensive projects. Today, she is director of central platforms, a team that "works on and supports business data. We work with a lot of teams, supporting all kinds of applications," including the company's signature online Rocket Mortgage app launched last year.
"Technology-wise, we have done a lot of automation, from applying for a loan to the process of going through and closing the loan. The whole process is supported by technology," she says.
That means plenty of opportunities to try out new ideas, learn new skills and collaborate with a variety of teams, says Fan.
"I have been working in this company for so many years, but not a single day do I feel like it's work. I haven't gotten bored," she says. "You get challenged every day."
