Credit Karma is a mission-driven company, focused on championing financial progress for our more than 100 million members in the U.S., Canada and U.K. While we're best known for pioneering free credit scores, our members turn to us for tips as they work on their financial goals, including helping them monitor their credit, identity monitoring, searching for credit cards, shopping for loans (car, home and personal), and growing their savings* -- all for free. Credit Karma has grown significantly through the years: we've added more than 70 million members in the last five years alone and now have more than 1,100 employees across our offices in Oakland, Charlotte, Los Angeles and London.

The Credit Ecosystem team is the beating heart of Credit Karma!

The work we do is challenging but rewarding as we empower product and data engineering with credit data. We want to grow with and learn from you!
We’re seeking a driven, results-oriented, problem solver to join the team. In this role, you will use your analytical and strategic experience to understand credit data and its usages, create data-driven business recommendations that drive key product decisions, and deepen relations with our partners (some of the largest financial institutions in the world).
