More than a thousand hirings are planned at Quicken Loans Inc., and a majority of those jobs are permanent positions in a variety of departments including technology.
More than 1,400 new team members are being hired by the Detroit-based online lending giant, Quicken Senior Manager Communications Jennifer Rass confirmed in a written statement.
A majority of the expansion will occur in Detroit.
Summer interns account for 600 of the total.
The remaining 800 full-time employees will fill openings in “all areas of the company including technology, operations, mortgage banking and more,” the statement said.
Quicken said in a January posting that it was recruiting 500 interns and 300 “technology all stars.”
Quicken’s staff size stands at 4,000, including 3,700 people at the downtown headquarters operation, the same as January, Rass said.
The 1,400 positions are expected to be filled within the next 60 to 90 days.
A record $30 billion was originated last year by Quicken, making it the eighth-biggest residential originator during 2011.
