An Insider's view of Pennymac

What are some social events your company does?

Our Tech team has great events, including casino & trivia nights, virtual happy hours, gaming - we’ve even sponsored a video game tournament against our industry competitors! We’re nationally disbursed, but regardless of where people live, we’re all part of one interactive, linked community, and it’s easy to find others who share your interests.


Senior Developer, Production

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

The culture at Pennymac has cultivated a great sense of teamwork in which we all succeed, fail, and learn together. We collaborate in many ways - from video calls to morning coffee hours, ad hoc huddles, email, chat, and sometimes while playing ping pong or pool in the cafeteria. Everyone is encouraged to work together to accomplish a common goal.


Vice President, IT Program Management

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

My time at Pennymac has rocketed my career as a software dev. In two years I went from having no professional coding background to managing three applications in production, managing two direct staff and contributing to open-source libraries. My time has given me the experience and skills to successfully create new tech products that make money.


Assistant Vice President, Application Development

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

As a company, we're one very cohesive, supportive team with various areas of expertise. It's like a potluck - everyone brings something different, but it all comes together perfectly. Company management believes in us, trusts us, and invests in us. That provides the opportunity to build positive outcomes for our business and our customers.


Managing Director, Technology Infrastructure

What are some things you learned at the company?

Our team constantly works to better itself by delivering software on time without shortcuts or compromising quality. At Pennymac, I have the opportunity to own many critical day-to-day database operations. I've had the flexibility to be innovative, which has allowed me to grow as a developer.
