What’s your title at Credit Karma?
Front-End Web Developer Lead
Describe what you do at Credit Karma.
After our team of designers finishes working on the mockups, they give them to me and I code them into something that can be understood by Internet browsers. After that, it goes to the back-end developers.
How long have you worked at CK?
I’ve been on the team since November 2008. This year will be my 5th anniversary… and I was employee number 5, I believe!
What’s your favorite thing about working at CK?
The great people and the ability to do what I love while improving my financial health. Oh yes, and I love that people here understand my humor.
What’s your favorite snack in the CK kitchen?
I rarely snack… I don’t think of it as being healthy.
What is something your coworkers probably don’t know about you?
I lived in Thailand for 6 months and even tried to learn Thai (and I did have some success with it).
What was your worst subject in elementary school?
I was good in pretty much every subject, except maybe sports because I thought of it as a waste of my time.
What’s a secret (or not-so-secret) talent you have?
I make people laugh without even trying.
If you could pick any superhero power, what would it be and why?
The power to fly or teleport. Why? I like to travel!
What’s your best credit/money tip?
Never spend more than you can afford. It’s much easier to ruin your finances than to fix it.

It’s definitely a rarity to see Igor snacking,
