    Credit Karma CEO on fighting for tech talent in San Francisco, 'It's hard here' - San Francisco Business Times

    San Francsico-based Credit Karma says there are several reasons the company is expanding beyond the Bay Area. The hunt for talent is a key driver in the fintech's decision late last year to expand in Charlotte, N.C. and Venice in west Los Angeles.

    Going to work shouldn't be a chore. That's why Credit Karma gives employees a chance to unplug at their in-house spa, fully-stocked bar, cafe, meditation, arcade and music rooms.

Credit Karma – Why Work For Us?

We want to help our members take control of their finances. We start by giving them free access to their credit information so they know where they stand. Then we offer up tools, education and useful offers to help them understand their options and gain the confidence to better their financial lives.

We love working with data and building our technology to match new challenges. But above all, we’re working to make finance more human and accessible for everyone.

Our passion, creativity and optimism compel us to do what’s right for our members. And true to the name Karma, we only succeed when our members make financial progress, like getting approved for a credit card or refinancing a student loan.

Success requires action, so we don’t go through layers of bureaucracy. We put ideas out there and then challenge each other to make them better. And even as we grow, we still get together to share what we’ve done and where we’re headed.

We’ve grown a lot over the years, but we still bring the same energy that we did as a small, scrappy startup. Our product- and engineering-driven company culture is all about collaboration. We fight for what’s best for our members – and that starts with solving problems together.

To help us get where we want to go, Credit Karma needs a healthy and happy team. That’s why we believe in creating a fun and optimistic atmosphere, combining all the awesome perks of a tech company with a healthy work-life balance. Our office is stacked with free snacks (and on-site baristas), and we plan all sorts of team events and outings. But we don’t expect you to burn the midnight oil -- we have lives outside of work too!

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Credit Karma (San Francisco, CA) in August 2018.


    One Telephonic screen, then on-site. One of the far best experience with the recruiter, everyone on the team was super helpful, felt a lot of positive energy. Very knowledgeable team, don't hesitate to ask clarifying questions during interview.
