Make An Impact
With Your Inquiring Mind

Do you love a good mystery? You may have just uncovered the perfect career. A lot happens during the mortgage loan process between submitting the application and signing on the dotted line. At UWM, a career in Underwriting gives you the knowledge and power to help broker partners take borrowers from dream to dream loan.

Underwriters are curious, tech-savvy, personable problem solvers, who invest as much in their clients as they do in themselves. If you believe critical thinking isn’t nitpicking, but rather digging deeper to find what lies below the surface, a career in Underwriting could be the perfect fit for you. Let us help you develop a long-term professional career and do meaningful work that makes an impact in the process.

What Is Underwriting At UWM?

How Do I Become An Underwriter?

Paid Training and Continued Education

Whether you’re a recent college grad or an experienced professional looking for a new, long-lasting career, we provide all new team members with an initial 9 weeks of paid training and ongoing training and continued education with our nationally recognized training team.

“When I had joined UWM at first, I didn’t know what Fannie or Freddie was, I knew nothing of the mortgage industry or what the broker channel was. Now, I’m doing presentations for my senior capstone at school on Wholesale vs Retail market share and trends on first time homebuyers – all things that I learned outside of the classroom and from being in the industry myself. The fact that I knew nothing about loans and UWM turning me into a mortgage professional in less than two years is something that I am proud to claim.” – Mohammed Razon, Senior Underwriter
