The Nerds Behind Credit Karma: Jason
7 Comments |
Hi there! It’s Thursday, which means it’s that fun time of the week where we introduce you to another member of the Credit Karma team! Last week, we introduced you to Danielle, our lovely business development operations manager.
Today’s interview features Jason, one of our software engineers. To be honest, I don’t know much about Jason. However, I do know that one of our coworkers thinks he looks a lot like this guy and I gotta say… I have to agree!
Read on for all the nifty facts I learned about Jason!
What’s your title at Credit Karma?
Describe in 25 words or less what you do.
I build features & improvements that our great product team designs, with the goal of making our users’ experience with Credit Karma that much better.
How long have you worked at CK?
What’s your favorite thing about working at CK?
Working on a product that truly benefits its users. There are a lot of great tech reasons for why I enjoy working at Credit Karma, but to be able to do so on a product that serves its users and that I’m proud to recommend to others makes all the difference.
What’s your favorite snack in the CK kitchen?
Probably the English Tea cookies, which coincidentally are also on my ‘Stop Eating!’ list.
What is something your coworkers probably don’t know about you?
Size of my shoe collection? Scotch collection? Smashing Pumpkins concert bootleg collection? That any of these 3 exist?
What was your worst subject in elementary school?
English. I was just more of a Math & Science guy. Compasses, Bunsen burners, fancy calculators, that’s where it’s at.
What’s a secret (or not-so-secret) talent you have?
It’s been a few years, but I’d say I’m a pretty talented rollerblader. Ya, rollerblader.
If you could pick any superhero power, what would it be and why?
Not a very exotic choice here, but flying. Would save me quite a bit of time & money traveling, headphones would be allowed during takeoff, and I’d get great views of the Golden Gate Bridge.
What’s your best credit/money tip?
Do your research, understand how your financial decisions will affect you before making them. Don’t just sign on the line, give the OK, or assume things will work out.

Determined to see Jason rollerblade one day,
