Fannie Mae

In simplest terms, Fannie Mae serves the people who house America. We work at the heart of housing by providing reliable, affordable mortgage financing in all markets at all times. This gives more people the opportunity to buy, refinance, or rent homes and apartments. Working at the heart of housing also means continuously improving our company and our industry. We work tirelessly with our partners to build a stronger, safer, more efficient housing finance system – one that continues to create housing opportunities for homebuyers and renters in all communities across the nation. Creating these opportunities is what drives the people who work at Fannie Mae. Our technology teams are helping to drive transformation across the enterprise through new services and solutions. Our technology delivers the tools our customers need for mortgage lending in the 21st century, helps to modernize and simplify the mortgage process, and provides a better overall experience for home buyers. When you think of Fannie Mae, you might not immediately think of developers, coders, engineers, and other IT professionals performing system analysis, testing, and technical analysis, but those employees play a major role in helping us achieve our vision to be America's most valued housing partner.

Diversity & Inclusion

Fannie Mae fosters an inclusive culture that enables all employees to be fully engaged and feel respected and valued for who they are, empowering them to do their best work and achieve the company's vision. 

We have created a Women in Technology Advisory Council – an employee-driven community – which works to broaden the range of support, programs, and resources to advance women in technology from the classroom to the boardroom. Our Women’s ERG (WERG) is also very active and devoted to developing members’ leadership skills. The WERG recognizes that all voices should be heard and counted, and encourages women to participate in volunteer activities critical to the company's mission. 

We also offer 11 more employee resource groups (ERGs) that are an integral part of our strategy to create a culture of inclusion and offer employees of all backgrounds and interests a chance to connect, learn, and grow. These ERGs include Women, Muslims, Asians, African Ancestry Business Leaders for Excellence, Live Openly, Hispanics, Invisible, Progressive Organizational Programs, Veterans, Young Professionals, Christian Salt and Light, and Indus.


Fannie Mae offers a comprehensive range of benefits to help employees integrate their work and personal responsibilities. These programs include childcare resources, Employee Assistance in Housing, adoption expense reimbursement, bonding leave, an Employee Assistance Program, matching gifts (that match your financial support for eligible nonprofits), work/life seminars, flexible working arrangements, retiree medical plans, and fitness center discounts. Our benefits allow you to work one-on-one with experienced professionals to protect you and your family, grow your investments, and build a stable future. Visit our benefits page to find out more.

Our employees also have access to resources that allow them to proactively manage and build their careers through our Fannie Mae University online training. Fannie Mae University offers more than 1,500 instructor-led courses from highly regarded sources. We also provide customized leadership development programs, a Start Partner, and Assistance for Collegiate Education (ACE) program. You can read more about professional development opportunities on Fannie Mae’s site. 


We view our culture as one of our most important differentiators. That means ensuring our employees find challenging and fulfilling work; continuous learning and development; and a culture committed to rewards and recognition. We are a leader in diversity and inclusion, are dedicated to serving our community, and are driven by our vision, mission, and values.

We’re honored to have recently been included on Computerworld's List of "100 Best Places to Work in IT," and their "Top 10 for Diversity!" and imaginative companies using business technology.
