Who Are We?

Learn something new about Semper Home Loans by reading our story below...we think you'll like what you find out.

In 2005 Semper began its journey towards becoming a premier mortgage lender offering a full range of mortgage products coupled with low rates and fees. From the moment we first opened our doors, we have consistently served our clients with professionalism, courtesy and superb customer service. And although some may say that we’ve arrived, we are not satisfied. Our commitment to our clients means that we’ll never stop our quest to perfect what we do and to continue to develop programs and processes that will make Semper THE lender to go to when you need the job done right.

At Semper, we are driven by our passion to:
1. Build a world class company
2. Be the best that we can be by serving our clients with honesty, respect and consideration for their needs
3. Surrounded by driven, success oriented employees who exhibit an excellent work ethic and share our desire to be the best.

Semper’s drive has resulted in us not only surviving tough economic times but growing during the last few years that has seen countless brokers, lenders and banks go out of business. We had the foresight to know that “treating people the way we wanted to be treated” would result in a foundation that would stand the test of time. We firmly believe that our employees are the soul of Semper and that by treating them with respect and dignity we will help them accomplish their personal goals. This is the formula for success… built Semper Style.

  • Mortgage Banker

    So you wanna be a banker, heh?

    View job details

    Who You Are

    Mortgage Bankers are the heart of Semper. They are responsible for representing who Semper is every day and need to shine with Semper Style.

    Our mortgage bankers:

    Smile. They love what they do and love to help people get what they want.
    Want the ball. They know what they are doing and will find a way to get it done.

    "Get it." They understand that it takes hard work and dedication to succeed and have proven their understanding over and over by consistently being the best. This is not just a job, it is a means to an end of providing a better life for yourself and/or your family.

    Failure is not acceptable and your family deserves the best you have to offer.
    Are Ethical. Honesty is not the best policy...its the only policy. Our clients deserve to be treated fairly, honestly and their needs come first.

    No “I” in “Team”. Although each banker is responsible for their own production, they recognized that their commitment to the Semper family is Semper Style.

    Full speed ahead and damn the torpedoes. Nothing (ethical and legal) will stop you from succeeding. Not negative people, negative press, negative co-workers or skeptical clients. You see the silver lining and it is there that you focus.

    What you'll do

    Every day is different in the mortgage business and at Semper we try to keep it simple and productive for our mortgage bankers. However, there are some things that need to be done every day...the Semper way. So be prepared to:

    Pick up the phone. Our clients are calling you to help them get a mortgage. Pick up the phone, ask them what they want to accomplish and help them do it.

    Master your craft. You need to know your loan products. If you don't know something, you will find the answer, even if it means (yikes!) asking for help.

    Be organized: This doesn't mean making your piles of paperwork neater, it means putting together a loan file that is complete and ready to be processed.

    Listen: Sales is about listening (did you hear me?). There are times when you will have to be a sympathetic ear, a sounding board or a whipping boy/girl. In any case, they are trying to tell you how to help them. Figure it out and make it happen.

    Take it on the chin. Every now and then you will be faced with adversity. You need to be in control of your emotions and stay positive. Have an attitude of gratitude, even if you want to reach through the phone and....well you know.

    Why Semper?

    OK, you should know by now that Semper Style is what sets us apart from our "competition" (shazif they can compete!) and you are beginning to believe that you may have some of that Semper Style yourself and are asking, "sounds good, what's in it for me?" (Pretty good mind reading huh?). Well here's some Style coming at you:

    Salary plus commission. You work hard; you'll get paid REALLY well.
    Leads, Leads, Leads. Our multi-faceted marketing plan utilizes direct mail, internet, print and other electronic advertising media. We work hard to bring you qualified, motivated prospects. The rest is up to you.

    No cold calls. I just had to put this in here because many sales are made by cold calling, however you won't ever have to do that; but it doesn't mean you shouldn't...
    We are a lender. We have all of the programs, we have the best investors and the best pricing. We will not be undersold and our turn around time is seriously fast.

    Beni's. We have: Medical, Dental, AFLAC, Vacations, Holidays, Group Events etc etc

    A backroom that rocks. Our processors and underwriters know that their job is to get loans done and are to be constantly looking out for ways to make a deal work. As a lender, we make common sense underwriting decisions...just like the old days.

    Our Office. Nowhere is Semper Style more evident than in our new office space. Your chair has never been sat in before, you desk has never had coffee spilled on it, your computer is fast, your phone is comfortable the roof doesn’t leak. What more could you ask for?

    So, do you have "IT"? Can you feel the pull of Semper Style? Want to work for a company whose growth is driven by 3 guys who started off as loan officers and worked their way up? Well?? Whatcha waiting for, click on the "apply now" button.
    See you in the funny papers....

    You can’t even SAY the “F” word (Failure):

    Being the best is not just a slogan to you. You are so self driven that sometimes you wake up as 5 a.m. and sometimes you go to bed at 5 a.m. Everything is a competition, every game needs to be won, second place is first loser. Even though it is not about the money, you know it is all about the money and won’t settle for less than 5 figures (to the LEFT of the decimal point)!

    The Ideal Teammate:

    You know the guy (or gal). Although they can score at will, they take pride in making the pass. Sure you’re good but there is something about making people around you rise to your level that brings great reward. Kind of like OchoCinco, Tyrel Owens or the Lone Ranger…NOT!!

    Who’s fooling Who?: Look, we were born at night, but not last night. It’s cool that you can talk the talk but if you can’t walk the walk we’ll know by your production. So we need to start off and continue on the right foot. Honesty is always the best policy so leave any phoney baloney where it belongs; on the butcher’s floor. Be honest with yourself, us and our clients and you will do very well.

    Full Speed Ahead and Damn the Torpedoes: You won’t let anything stand in the way of your success. This doesn’t mean you cut corners but it does mean that the word “can’t” isn’t in your vocabulary. You don’t listen to the naysayers, you don’t let others bring you down and you do try to find a way to get the job done and done right. In other words you are like us, the guys who built the company…well maybe you have more hair than some of us, but you get what I mean.

    Put me in Coach: You are good at what you do and you know it. This doesn’t make you arrogant but it does make you confident. When there is a last shot to make you want the ball. You are enthusiastic and don’t have time for negative talk. You know what to do, how to do it and how you should be rewarded for doing it. You don’t sit around waiting for “it” to happen, you are proactive in making “it” happen. You think you deserve the key to the executive bathroom. We agree with you. (Don’t get your hopes up…it ain’t happening). However, you may be running things some day.

    Technology is Your Friend!: You actually know your way around a computer. You are proficient at using a LOS and can even type with more than just two fingers. Excel and Word don’t intimidate you (although you are concerned that Facebook is going to Twitter you all over MySpace). To you the internet is not just for surfing naughty web sites.

    Your Life with Semper:

    Arses and Elbow: You will be busier than a one armed paper hanger (I apologize to any one armed paper hangers who may read this). There is going to be some friction from you moving so fast but that is OK, you will have plenty of company, not that you’ll have time to see them, but hey, at least you’ll know that you aren’t alone.

    The Digs: Our office space is Brand-E-New. Our technology is Brand-E-New. Your seat has never been sat in. And, you even get your own pen and paper clips. If you are real good, we’ll give you a staple remover. And if you are really, really good you can use the lounge and play table tennis or veg out with the Wii.

    Requirements

    Experienced: It’s simple. You have to know how to analyze, qualify, structure a program and pitch that program to our clients. You have to hold their hand through the process. We want them to be comfortable with Semper and with you. It is up to you to make clear what to them is a complicated process. You need to be organized and anticipate what is coming next. You need to know how to close the deal and close the loan. Following up comes naturally to you. You know how to LISTEN, when to speak and when to be quiet (I think my wife just possessed my mind for a second there!).

    Focused: Yes being a lender is serious business. However, that doesn’t have to mean we can’t have fun doing it. Our clients trust their most valuable asset to us. You have to be focused. You have to be sharp. You have to care about what you do. Simply put, do your job way you would want a plastic surgeon who is giving you a nose job to do theirs.

    You are Smrt…I mean Smart: This is not rocket science…and thank God `cause I know some people who are dangerous around fireworks. But, if you think the moon is made out of Blue Cheese, you probably shouldn’t go any further…However, if you know that it is made out of Swiss Cheese, we can talk (you can see the holes with the naked eye during a full moon…duh!).

    Character: No, I don’t mean you being a character…we want that you have character. You know; don’t lie, don’t steal, don’t cheat, don’t gossip, don’t come in late and leave early (only I can do that), don’t be a Yankees fan. `Nuff said.

    Your Career Path

    The Payoff: We are in it for the long haul. We want you with us. We promote from within and are loyal to those who are loyal to us. I guess we are kind of like a dog pack. We succeed because we succeed together. We want to be a garden where people grow and reach for higher heights (no remarks about being vegetables).

    Benni’s: Besides a nice beefy paycheck, great working conditions and a chance to work with me, we provide health insurance, AFLAC, paid holidays and all that good stuff. If you want to go back to school to take courses that are relevant to what you do here, we will assist you…as long as you inform us of any cool keg parties that you come across on campus.

  • Loan Processor

    Go ahead, process this!

    View job details

    Position: Loan Processor

    Who you Are

    If Mortgage Bankers are the heart of Semper and the controller is the brain, the loan processors are the legs that make things move. The processor knows how to put a loan together and is able to interpret what a mortgage banker is trying to do. You will take the initiative to get loans to the next step. We expect that our processors will:

    Be passionate. You love making loans work and enjoy talking to people on the phone. Although your job is technical in nature it also requires excellent people skills and passion is a trait that is easily picked up by those around you. OK, what I’m trying to say is that you are a smoozer and can charm both borrower and loan officer alike.
    Be knowledgeable. You take pride in knowing the products and are able to steer a loan in a direction that it needs to go in to better serve the client’s needs. So in a sense you assist the loan officer in qualifying the borrower. You don’t just input data, check boxes and move files around; you understand the process and anticipate what will be needed to make the file whole.
    "Get it." You understand that a clock is merely a reference point and that the day is not over until the job is done. That the reason you do this is not just to eek out a living but to create a lifestyle that is healthy both for you and for your family. And if you don’t have a family then you have permission to be selfish and buy the car or home you always wanted just because you can.
    Are Ethical. Honesty is not the best policy...its the only policy. Don’t lie, steal or cheat and things will go well. `Nuff said.
    No “I” in “Team”. Although you will be responsible for doing your own thing, you never lose sight of the bottom line; helping Semper achieve our corporate goals. As corny as it sounds, we consider Semper to be a family and that’s what will help us be one of the truly great companies to build a career with. That is Semper Style!
    Full speed ahead and damn the torpedoes. Not snow, nor sleet nor dark of night will keep you from your charge. You find ways to get the job done, not excuses as to why you haven’t. There is always a way, and you always have the will. It is just who you are.

    What you'll do

    Every day is different at Semper with new challenges coming and going. Some days you are the bug and other days the windshield. Lucky for you, you thrive in a dynamic, fast paced environment. However, there are some things that need to be done every day...the Semper way. So be prepared to:

    Measure Twice, Cut Once. You need to pay attention to details. As processor you will treat each loan as its own entity and will know every nuance about each file, who the borrower is, how their income is derived and whether they live in a shack or a castle. Even though you are confident in what you do, you still double check all of your work and even triple check things that are critical.
    Master your craft. Although you may not have written the loan guidelines, you know them inside and out because in your “spare time” you study them. You are not afraid to ask questions and listen to constructive criticisms. You pride yourself in being very competent but are humble enough to listen to criticism and make corrections where needed.
    Be organized: This should come naturally to you. You know where everything is because there is a place for everything and everything has its place.
    Take it on the chin. Every now and then you will be faced with adversity. You need to be in control of your emotions and stay positive. Have an attitude of gratitude, even if you don’t feel it, you need to fake it until you make it (Did I use enough metaphors in this sentence??? Geeez, what a cornball).

    Why Semper?

    OK, you should know by now that Semper Style is what sets us apart from our "competition" (shazif they can compete!) and you are beginning to believe that you may have some of that Semper Style yourself and are asking, "sounds good, what's in it for me?" (Pretty good mind reading huh?). Well here's some Style coming at you:

    Generous Salary. You work hard; we pay you REALLY well.
    Beni's. We have: Medical, Dental, AFLAC, Vacations, Holidays, Group Events etc etc...

    Our Office. Nowhere is Semper Style more evident than in our new office space. Your chair has never been sat in before, you desk has never had coffee spilled on it, your computer is fast, your phone is comfortable the roof doesn’t leak. What more could you ask for?

    So, do you have "IT"? Can you feel the pull of Semper Style? Want to work for a company whose growth is driven by 3 guys who started off as loan officers and worked their way up? Well?? Whatcha waiting for, click on the "apply now" button.
    See you in the funny papers....

    Self Analysis: You know who you are and where you fit in. You care so much about your job that others call you a “company man/woman” and you take it as a compliment. It is in your blood, your psyche, to pay attention to details. You would rather not do a job than ham and egg it. You come to work to get away from the mundane and you are driven to success without any need of a chauffeur.

    Put me in Coach: You want the ball because the team needs you to carry it all the way. You are the go to “guy” and you thrive in that role. Whatever needs done, you’ll do it, no matter how long it takes or how you may not feel like doing it. The success of the team is as important to your own personal success.

    Beneath your skin: What we see is what we get. You are real and can smell phoney balony a mile away. You don’t have time for gossip and actually care about other people. You care about yourself and your job. You understand that although you work to live, you also realize that work doesn’t have to be a four letter word (hey, lets spell it WRK, no one will know the difference). To you brown nosing is snuggling with your Golden Retriever.

    Eat Your Dust: You are full of energy. No moping around with you. You come in ready to work and if anyone is not on the same page you slam the book on them. You are constantly on the look out for ways to make the completion of tasks more efficient. Although you may cut a few corners, you don’t sacrifice the integrity of the team or the reputation of the company.

    Sensi: Like a martial arts master, every move you make is calculated and repeatable. You are just good at what you do and are proud of it. You don’t need someone looking over your shoulder yet you can handle constructive criticism and aren’t afraid to try things a bit differently than you have been used to. The word “can’t” is not in your vocabulary (neither is antidisestablishmentarianism but Lord knows that it isn’t in too many other folks’ either).

    You Can Find the “Any” key: When instruction direct you to “hit any key to continue” you don’t spend an hour trying to find the “any” key on the keyboard. In fact, not only are you not intimidated by technology, you embrace it. You understand that computers and programs are tools that help you get your job done. Further, you actually use the internet for something a bit more useful than letting folks know that your life would be really boring if not for the fact that you are having a pita pocket for lunch.

    Your Life with Semper:

    Arses and Elbow: You will be busier than a one armed paper hanger (I apologize to any one armed paper hangers who may read this). There is going to be some friction from you moving so fast but that is OK, you will have plenty of company, not that you’ll have time to see them, but hey, at least you’ll know that you aren’t alone.

If you are real good, we’ll give you a staple remover. And if you are really, really good you can use the lounge and play table tennis or veg out with the Wii.

    Requirements

    Experienced: Got CHUMS ID? Cool. 2.63 million minutes underwriting FHA and VA Loans? Fabulous. OK, the fact that you were able to figure out that there are 2.63 million minutes in 5 years puts you at the top of the class. Please tell me you know DO, DU, TOTAL Scorecard, FHA Connection, and aren’t afraid to tell us when a loan really sucks.

    Focused: Yes being a lender is serious business. However, that doesn’t have to mean we can’t have fun doing it. Our clients trust their most valuable asset to us. You have to be focused. You have to be sharp. You have to care about what you do. Simply put, do your job way you would want a plastic surgeon who is giving you a nose job to do theirs.

  • Underwriter

    Think you can handle this position?

    View job details

    Position: Underwriter

    Who you Are
    Underwriters are the backbone of Semper. We count on you to make the correct decision on every loan. You are confident that if you sign an approval the lender will buy the loan, 100% of the time, without exception. Your ability to assess the likeliness that a loan will perform is unparalleled and that is Semper Style. So, our underwriters are:

    Passionate. To do a great job, you have to love what you do. You want Semper to succeed because you will be rewarded for that success. Your work ethic is second to none and you often wish there were more hours in the day.
    Outspoken. We are not interested in an underwriter who will sit at their desk and let business happen. You will know what IS and what IS NOT a loan and will have no problem letting people know while at the same time having ideas on finding a home for it, regardless of how hard we will have to work to get it done.
    "Get it." You understand that a clock is merely a reference point and that the day is not over until the job is done. That the reason you do this is not just to eek out a living but to create a lifestyle that is healthy both for you and for your family. And if you don’t have a family then you have permission to be selfish and buy the car or home you always wanted just because you can.
    Are Ethical. Honesty is not the best policy...its the only policy. Don’t lie, steal or cheat and things will go well. `Nuff said.

    Full speed ahead and damn the torpedoes. Not snow, nor sleet nor dark of night will keep you from your charge. You find ways to get the job done, not excuses as to why you haven’t. There is always a way, and you always have the will. It is just who you are.

    What you'll do

    Every day is different at Semper with new challenges coming and going. Some days are sunny and some days are stormy but you are steady and ready to face any obstacles. Lucky for you, you thrive in a dynamic, fast paced environment. However, there are some things that need to be done every day...the Semper way. So be prepared to:

    Checks and Balances. You need to pay attention to details. As an underwriter you will be keenly aware of what our investors require not waste time trying to fit a square peg in a round hole. Your work is always accurate because you are not afraid to check and double check it and if you are still not sure, you aren’t too proud to ask a question.
    I AM UNDERWRITER! You are competent. Your work ethic is out of this world. Your attitude is positively positive and infectious. Like the ancient alchemist you are always striving to turn lead into gold!
    Be organized: This should come naturally to you. You know where everything is because there is a place for everything and everything has its place. Take it on the chin. Every now and then you will be faced with adversity. You need to be in control of your emotions and stay positive. Have an attitude of gratitude, even if you don’t feel it, you need to fake it until you make it (Did I use enough metaphors in this sentence??? Geeez, what a cornball).

    See you in the funny papers....

    Got to have it: You are so into doing what you do best that if you could sleep at that office you would, even if it meant using your desk as a bed and manila folders as a blanket.

    No “I” in Team: You are a whale…No, you’re not like a whale as far as largeness goes, but you thrive in a team and will swim to the rescue of a floundering co-worker.

    Peek a boo: I see you…the real you. Like us, you can’t stand phonies and believe that honesty is the best policy. And you would never consider brown-nosing, even if you were being water boarded (which we haven’t done to anyone…yet).

    GO, GO, GO: Pity the fool who gets in your way in the morning. You come to work ready to work and actually work! Imagine that….

    Maestro: You are a master at what you do. You have your own baton and orchestrate your day like no body’s business. You know how to get it done, sometimes you even smash a toe along the way. “I can’t” is just not in your vocabulary. I’m getting excited just thinking about watching you work (OK, maybe I need a life)

    Technophobe? Perish the though!: You are not afraid of technology. You know how to (and even like to) use Facebook, Twitter, Myspace and all that geeky stuff to make your job easier, or at least more funner (I can say funner, it’s my webpage). In fact if it were possible you would get married to technology…or at least live together.

    Your Life with Semper:

    Arses and Elbow: You will be busier than a one armed paper hanger (I apologize to any one armed paper hangers who may read this). There is going to be some friction from you moving so fast but that is OK, you will have plenty of company, not that you’ll have time to see them, but hey, at least you’ll know that you aren’t alone.

    The Digs: Our office space is Brand-E-New. Our technology is Brand-E-New. Your seat has never been sat in. And, you even get your own pen and paper clips. If you are real good, we’ll give you a staple remover. And if you are really, really good you can use the lounge and play table tennis or veg out with the Wii.

Please tell me you know DO, DU, TOTAL Scorecard, FHA Connection, and aren’t afraid to tell us when a loan really sucks.

    Focused: Yes being a lender is serious business. However, that doesn’t have to mean we can’t have fun doing it. Our clients trust their most valuable asset to us. You have to be focused. You have to be sharp. You have to care about what you do. Simply put, do your job way you would want a plastic surgeon who is giving you a nose job to do theirs.

    You are Smrt…I mean Smart: This is not rocket science…and thank God `cause I know some people who are dangerous around fireworks. But, if you think the moon is made out of Blue Cheese, you probably shouldn’t go any further…However, if you know that it is made out of Swiss Cheese, we can talk (you can see the holes with the naked eye during a full moon…duh!).

    Character: No, I don’t mean you being a character…we want that you have character. You know; don’t lie, don’t steal, don’t cheat, don’t gossip, don’t come in late and leave early (only I can do that), don’t be a Yankees fan. `Nuff said.

    Your Career Path: We are in it for the long haul. We want you with us. We promote from within and are loyal to those who are loyal to us. I guess we are kind of like a dog pack. We succeed because we succeed together. We want to be a garden where people grow and reach for higher heights (no remarks about being vegetables).

    Benni’s: Besides a nice beefy paycheck, great working conditions and a chance to work with me, we provide health insurance, AFLAC, paid holidays and all that good stuff. If you want to go back to school to take courses that are relevant to what you do here, we will assist you…as long as you inform us of any cool keg parties that you come across on campus.

    Position: Client Relations

    Who you Are

    If Mortgager Bankers are the heart of Semper then Client Relations Person (CRP) are the arteries that carry the blood. The CRP will assist the mortgage bankers by acting as liasian between them, the borrowers and the processors. You will take the loan file from point of sale through to closing. We expect that our CRPs will:

    Be passionate. You love the fast pace and thrive on getting things done and done right. You are a people person and actually look forward to the challenges that each day brings.
    Be knowledgeable. You take pride in knowing what is needed for each loan type and are able to anticipate the mortgage banker’s needs…and that keeps you one step ahead. You also know how to get other people to do and get what you ask of them. You also love learning and spend “down time” increasing your knowledge of the industry.
    "Get it." You understand that a clock is merely a reference point and that the day is not over until the job is done. That the reason you do this is not just to eek out a living but to create a lifestyle that is healthy both for you and for your family.
    Are Ethical. Honesty is not the best policy...its the only policy. Don’t lie, steal or cheat and things will go well. `Nuff said.
    No “I” in “Team”. Few jobs require a team attitude than that of a sales floor. You may not be quarterback but you are an important part of the team. You are always looking for ways to do your job more efficiently and are always ready to lend a hand, even if the task is “not your job.” As corny as it sounds, to us Semper is a family and that’s what makes us one of the truly great companies to build a career with. In fact, that is Semper Style!
    Full speed ahead and damn the torpedoes. You come to work to work, every day. You work hard, even if it seems like you are doing more than the average person. That’s because nothing will stop you from being the kind of employee that gets ahead in the business world. You find ways to get the job done, not excuses as to why you haven’t. There is always a way, and you always have the will. It is just who you are.

    What you'll do

    Every day is different at Semper with new challenges coming and going. Some days you are the ant and other days the shoe. Lucky for you, you thrive in a dynamic, fast paced environment. However, there are some things that need to be done every day...the Semper way. So be prepared to:

    Measure Twice, Cut Once. You need to pay attention to details. You need to know every nuance about each file, who the borrower is, how their income is derived and whether they live in a shack or a castle. Even though you are confident in what you do, you still double check all of your work and even triple check things that are critical.
    Master your craft. Although you may not have to know every product inside and out you know a lot about them because in your “spare time” you study them. You are not afraid to ask questions and listen to constructive criticisms. You pride yourself in being very competent but are humble enough to listen to criticism and make corrections where needed.
    Be organized: This should come naturally to you. You know where everything is because there is a place for everything and everything has its place.
    Take it on the chin. Every now and then you will be faced with adversity. You need to be in control of your emotions and stay positive. Have an attitude of gratitude, even if you don’t feel it, you need to fake it until you make it (Did I use enough metaphors in this sentence??? Geeez, what a cornball).

    Why Semper?

    OK, you should know by now that Semper Style is what sets us apart from our "competition" (shazif they can compete!) and you are beginning to believe that you may have some of that Semper Style yourself and are asking, "sounds good, what's in it for me?" (Pretty good mind reading huh?). Well here's some Style coming at you:

    Generous Salary. You work hard; we pay you REALLY well.
    Beni's. We have: Medical, Dental, AFLAC, Vacations, Holidays, Group Events etc etc

    Our Office. Nowhere is Semper Style more evident than in our new office space. Your chair has never been sat in before, you desk has never had coffee spilled on it, your computer is fast, your phone is comfortable the roof doesn’t leak. What more could you ask for?

    So, do you have "IT"? Can you feel the pull of Semper Style? Want to work for a company whose growth is driven by 3 guys who started off as loan officers and worked their way up? Well?? Whatcha waiting for, click on the "apply now" button. See you in the funny papers....

    Self Analysis: You know who you are and where you fit in. You care so much about your job that others call you a “company man/woman” and you take it as a compliment. It is in your blood, your psyche, to pay attention to details. You would rather not do a job than ham and egg it. You come to work to get away from the mundane and you are driven to success without any need of a chauffeur.

    Put me in Coach: You want the ball because the team needs you to carry it all the way. You are the go to “guy” and you thrive in that role. Whatever needs done, you’ll do it, no matter how long it takes or how you may not feel like doing it. The success of the team is as important to your own personal success.

    Beneath your skin: What we see is what we get. You are real and can smell phoney balony a mile away. You don’t have time for gossip and actually care about other people. You care about yourself and your job. You understand that although you work to live, you also realize that work doesn’t have to be a four letter word (hey, lets spell it WRK, no one will know the difference). To you brown nosing is snuggling with your Golden Retriever.

    Eat Your Dust: You are full of energy. No moping around with you. You come in ready to work and if anyone is not on the same page you slam the book on them. You are constantly on the look out for ways to make the completion of tasks more efficient. Although you may cut a few corners, you don’t sacrifice the integrity of the team or the reputation of the company.

    Sensi: Like a martial arts master, every move you make is calculated and repeatable. You are just good at what you do and are proud of it. You don’t need someone looking over your shoulder yet you can handle constructive criticism and aren’t afraid to try things a bit differently than you have been used to. The word “can’t” is not in your vocabulary (neither is antidisestablishmentarianism but Lord knows that it isn’t in too many other folks’ either).

    You Can Find the “Any” key: When instruction direct you to “hit any key to continue” you don’t spend an hour trying to find the “any” key on the keyboard. In fact, not only are you not intimidated by technology, you embrace it. You understand that computers and programs are tools that help you get your job done. Further, you actually use the internet for something a bit more useful than letting folks know that your life would be really boring if not for the fact that you are having a pita pocket for lunch.

    Your Life with Semper:

    Arses and Elbow: You will be busier than a one armed paper hanger (I apologize to any one armed paper hangers who may read this). There is going to be some friction from you moving so fast but that is OK, you will have plenty of company, not that you’ll have time to see them, but hey, at least you’ll know that you aren’t alone.

    The Digs: Our office space is Brand-E-New. Our technology is Brand-E-New. Your seat has never been sat in. And, you even get your own pen and paper clips. If you are real good, we’ll give you a staple remover. And if you are really, really good you can use the lounge and play table tennis or veg out with the Wii.

    Requirements

    Experienced: Got CHUMS ID? Cool. 2.63 million minutes underwriting FHA and VA Loans? Fabulous. OK, the fact that you were able to figure out that there are 2.63 million minutes in 5 years puts you at the top of the class. Please tell me you know DO, DU, TOTAL Scorecard, FHA Connection, and aren’t afraid to tell us when a loan really sucks.

    Focused: Yes being a lender is serious business. However, that doesn’t have to mean we can’t have fun doing it. Our clients trust their most valuable asset to us. You have to be focused. You have to be sharp. You have to care about what you do. Simply put, do your job way you would want a plastic surgeon who is giving you a nose job to do theirs.

    View job details

    Position: Controller

    Who you Are

    If Mortgager Bankers are the heart of Semper then the controller is the brain. The controller knows where Semper stands at all times and is always proactive in suggesting ways to make and retain profit. Oh, and they know how to maintain the books too…all with Semper Style. Our controller will:

    Be passionate. To do a great job, you have to love what you do. Numbers are your friend in part because 2+2 almost always makes 4! Although working with numbers all day can sometimes be tedious, you never forget your sense of humor.
    Not be a wallflower. We are not interested in someone who will don their green visor and peck away at a calculator all day. We want your input and expect that you will be an important part of the management team. Must be willing to buy a round of drinks form time to time.
    "Get it." You understand that a clock is merely a reference point and that the day is not over until the job is done. That the reason you do this is not just to eek out a living but to create a lifestyle that is healthy both for you and for your family. And if you don’t have a family then you have permission to be selfish and buy the car or home you always wanted just because you can.
    Are Ethical. Honesty is not the best policy...its the only policy. Don’t lie, steal or cheat and things will go well. `Nuff said.
    No “I” in “Team”. Although you will be responsible for doing your own thing, you never lose sight of the bottom line; helping Semper achevie our corporate goals. As corny as it sounds, we consider Semper to be a family and that’s what will help us be one of the truly great companies to build a career with. That is Semper Style!
    Full speed ahead and damn the torpedoes. Not snow, nor sleet nor dark of night will keep you from your charge. You find ways to get the job done, not excuses as to why you haven’t. There is always a way, and you always have the will. It is just who you are.

    What you'll do

    Every day is different at Semper with new challenges coming and going. Some days you are the bug and other days the windshield. Lucky for you, you thrive in a dynamic, fast paced environment. However, there are some things that need to be done every day...the Semper way. So be prepared to:

    Measure Twice, Cut Once. You need to pay attention to details. As controller you will always be aware of every credit and every debit, knowing where they came from and where they are going to. You double check all of your work and triple check anything that is critical. You are always right (many people think they are right, but you KNOW that you are).
    Master your craft. Although you didn’t write GAAP, you know them inside and out. You are not afraid to ask questions and enjoy reading industry newsletters in order to keep up on the latest techniques and technology. You pride yourself in being the expert but are humble enough to listen to criticism and make corrections where needed.
    Be organized: This should come naturally to you. You know where everything is because there is a place for everything and everything has its place. Take it on the chin. Every now and then you will be faced with adversity. You need to be in control of your emotions and stay positive. Have an attitude of gratitude, even if you don’t feel it, you need to fake it until you make it (Did I use enough metaphors in this sentence??? Geeez, what a cornball).

    See you in the funny papers....

    Controller: Self Audit.

    Living in the Black: It matters to you that 2 + 2 = 4; all the time, every time. When you work, you roll up your sleeves; both to show that there is nothing up them and to reveal your “Mom `n Apple Pie” tattoo. You are committed to doing the job right the first time and you balance your life the same way you do the books, straight and narrow. Except maybe for Saturday nights when you sneak away for a little karaoake.

    Can you Hear me Now? : Communication is so important to you that you talk to yourself (not that you are listening…). Believe it or not we want to hear what you have to say and you need to tell us what we NEED to hear. You just LOVE building reports and to you charts and graphs are better than arts and crafts.

    Hold the Fudge and Fuzzy Math: Honesty is not the best policy…it’s the ONLY policy. Integrity and ethics are as important, if not more important than your knowledge of GAAP (if you don’t know what GAAP stands for, you may not need to pursue this any further).

    Measure Twice, Cut Once : It is a question of pride. You have it. You pride yourself in doing it right the first time. When you are not sure of something, you ask. You understand that maintaining the bottom line depends on each and every credit and debit being in its place. There is no room in your life for shoddy work and you take great pride in going the extra mile to get the job done.

    Technology is Your Friend!: You actually know your way around a computer. You are proficient at using a accounting/inventory software and can even type with more than just two fingers. Excel and Word don’t intimidate you (although you are concerned that Facebook is going to Twitter you all over MySpace). To you the internet is not just for surfing financial web sites.

    Semper Style:

    Not for the Faint of Heart: You will be busier than a one legged man in a butt kicking contest (I apologize to any one legged cage fighters who may read this). There is going to be some friction from you moving so fast but that is OK, you will have plenty of company, not that you’ll have time to see them, but hey, at least you’ll know that you aren’t alone.

    The Digs: Our office space is Brand-E-New. Our technology is Brand-E-New. Your seat has never been sat in. And, you even get your own pen and paper clips. If you are real good, we’ll give you a staple remover. And if you are really, really good you can use the lounge and play table tennis or veg out with the Wii.

    Requirements

    Experienced: It’s simple. You have to know how to organize and maintain accounts payable and recieveable, create reports and keep the books audit ready at all times. You must have experience interacting with top level management and be able to clearly communicate the state of the company and provide information to the President when ever he requires it. It is up to you to make clear and understandable the details of a complex accounting system. You need to be organized and anticipate what is coming next. Following up comes naturally to you. You know how to LISTEN, when to speak and when to be quiet (I think my wife just possessed my mind for a second there!).

    Focused: Yes being a lender is serious business and keeping a lender’s books is even more so. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun doing it. We will be trusting you with our purse strings. You can’t afford to take your eye off of the ball, even for a minute. You have to be focused. You have to be sharp. You have to care about what you do. Simply put, do your job way you would want a plastic surgeon who is giving you a nose job to do theirs.

    You are just Real Good with Numbers: Keeping the books is not quite rocket science but a company can crash and burn if finances are not kept in order. It is important for you to not only be book smart but “street” smart as well. We need you to be our eyes and ears when it comes to Semper’s financial matters. If the books don’t balance we WILL take away your game room priviledges.

    Character: No, I don’t mean you being a character…we want that you have character. You know; don’t lie, don’t steal, don’t cheat, don’t gossip, don’t come in late and leave early (only I can do that), don’t be a Giants fan. `Nuff said.

    Your Career Path

    The Payoff: We are in it for the long haul. We want you with us. We promote from within and are loyal to those who are loyal to us. I guess we are kind of like a dog pack. We succeed because we succeed together. We want to be a garden where people grow and reach for higher heights (no remarks about being vegetables).

    Benni’s: Besides a nice beefy paycheck, great working conditions and a chance to work with me, we provide health insurance, AFLAC, paid holidays and all that good stuff. If you want to go back to school to take courses that are relevant to what you do here, we will assist you…as long as you inform us of any cool keg parties that you come across on campus.
