CSS CEO, Dave Applegate and several of our team members talk about the CSS culture -- work hard, play hard!
CSS is partnering with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to create a single approach to the issuance and management of mortgage securities. Here's some background on the securitization process and what we are building.
How often, over the course of your career, do you get the opportunity to build something that will improve the capabilities of an entire industry?
If you’re looking to make your mark, this could be it.
Common Securitization Solutions (CSS) is a joint venture between Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, established to build a universal platform for the issuance and management of mortgage securities. This common securitization platform will help the overall mortgage finance system run more efficiently and with greater transparency and liquidity. Which, in turn, helps anyone who owns a home or wants to buy one.
To help us build it, we’re looking for a diverse group of talented individuals who believe in the value of teamwork, integrity, excellence, execution, respect, and balance.
CSS is a collaborative environment that encourages contribution from every member of our team. Our mantra is Run Common — this means we work closely with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to help them build a common platform. How we’re doing this, though, is rather uncommon. We’re using Agile principles to foster rapid development, face-to-face communication and continuous action. And together, we’re creating something remarkable.
