Company Updates

  • How our CTO Ryan Graciano helped create the technology to provide free credit scores. “I spent a ton of time on security, just nailing down very opinionated frameworks around how data is handled and database management and a lot of aspects of the session management client stuff... It’s hard to describe how many of my waking thoughts went into that.”

  • Our CTO Ryan Graciano shares about the early days of Credit Karma, what he looks for in a great engineer, and the approach he uses to build his team. “I got some good advice early on from some investors who said focus on the things you don’t like to do. So that’s where I started hiring first.”

Credit Karma – Why Work With 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!

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Credit Karma (San Francisco, CA) in August 2019.

    Interview

    First contact via phone. Very polite. Second call to arrange a face to face meeting.

    Meet with the Director of the department first. Very professional. Solid conversations. She was very clear in what the company was looking for. I was clear with all my answers.

    Second meeting with someone in the department. This person was much more involved with day to day issues. Great back and forth.

    Last words...." When can you start???"
