Why Work For Ginnie Mae

Distinguished Mission – Ginnie Mae has a distinguished history dating back to President Lyndon B. Johnson. Today, Ginnie Mae securities are the only mortgage-backed securities that offer the full faith and credit guaranty of the United States government. In a single step, the issuance of Ginnie Mae mortgage-backed securities converts individual mortgages into safe, liquid securities for investors around the world. Ginnie Mae thus helps channel global capital into American housing markets, helping make more mortgages available.

Public Service – Ginnie Mae challenges you – on your very first day – to ask yourself, “What can I do today to help make Ginnie Mae the “best-in-class” conduit for bringing capital into the American housing mortgage system with minimal risk to the American taxpayer?” Ginnie Mae employees work together to face and meet the American housing mortgage system economic challenges, while continuing to strive for better results for U.S. taxpayers. 

Learning and Growth – Energetic and talented employees work together to collaborate with one another to create a continuous environment of learning.
