About Rocket Companies

Headquartered in Detroit, Rocket Mortgage is the largest residential mortgage lender in the U.S. It was also the first mortgage company to have eClosings in all U.S. states. Originally known as Rock Financial, Rocket Mortgage was founded in 1985 by Dan Gilbert. The company gained notoriety when it launched its “Mortgage in a Box” program, which allowed people to fill out mortgage applications at home and on their own time, then simply drop their applications in the mail. For the last several years, the company has been the largest provider of FHA mortgages. In addition, for the last 18 years, Rocket has been named one of Fortune’s 30 best overall employers. 

Students and recent graduates can choose to undertake an internship with the company, where they’ll gain hands-on experience and access to its network of team members. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Rocket Mortgage has also started offering virtual internships. There are many open opportunities across each of the company’s departments.

Rocket Mortgage founded the Rocket Community Fund in order to support individuals and communities through its investments in housing, employment, and public life. The Rocket Community Fund has invested $5 million to the Rehabbed & Ready program, which is a partnership with the City of Detroit that renovates homes and increases access to financing in Detroit neighborhoods. The fund also partners with Project Evergreen to help identify and renovate public parks in the city of Detroit.
