WHY WORK FOR AMPLIFY?
Why might you want to work with us? Here are some direct quotes from some of our closer team members:
"As a Closer at Amplify we work independently and as a team and our leadership team here is very unique and supportive. Their dedication to insure a healthy work/family life balance is a breath of fresh air. "
"The people and culture are definitely the best at Amplify over anywhere I have ever worked. It also meant a lot to be included in Amplify events in Austin being a remote employee. It really made me like part of Amplify and allowed me to really meet other co-workers face to face. I didn't feel like just another number, as a remote employee. "
Here are some other reasons you might want to make a move:
- Our Real Estate Lending division is very dynamic and growing every year, which means there are opportunities for advancement and expanding your expertise by moving into different areas of Real Estate Lending. If you are feeling stagnant with your current employer, you should really consider Amplify.
- Stability. Being employed in the mortgage industry can feel like riding a rollercoaster. One month things are booming and you're working at full capacity, the next month business falls off and you get laid off. At Amplify, you are insulated from that. In fact, we've never had a lay off in our Real Estate division.
- We have a great benefit plan and our benefits kick in on the first of the month following date of hire.
- Our incentive plan is competitive.
- This position is eligible for 100% remote work even post-COVID.
- Our PTO plan rolls from year to year and you can accrue up to 320 hours before you are capped, but we also offer PTO cash out - you can cash out accrued PTO each month, as long as you maintain a balance of at least 40 hours.
