If you have a desire to help our organization strengthen its Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) function through executing and improving upon our Quality Assurance (QA) process, then this could be the perfect opportunity for you. You will review purchased single-family mortgage loans and compare them against Freddie Mac's loan approval requirements. The result of your work will help identify areas of improvement in Freddie Mac's Quality Control function, gaps in our loan requirements, fraud trends, training opportunities, or other business enhancements. If this interests you, apply to become part of the QA team and join Freddie Mac as we build a better housing finance system.
