Hi everyone! Another month has passed, so it’s time to introduce you to another member of the Credit Karma team. We hope you had fun meeting Musab last month! Today, we’re excited to introduce you to Pedro, one of our amazing Senior Product Managers.
Pedro loves traveling and has been to a whopping 37 countries so far. He’s also a black belt in taekwondo, but, in his own words, is “pretty chill and completely non violent.” Scroll down for more fun facts about Pedro!
What’s your title at Credit Karma?

How long have you worked at CK?
What’s your favorite thing about working at CK?
I would say my coworkers (they’re super open-minded and collaborative), the fast work pace, and how we’re all empowered to make things happen.
What’s your favorite snack in the CK kitchen?
“Rip van waffles” – cocoa filled.
What is something your coworkers probably don’t know about you?
Apparently I have reduced sensitivity to caffeine – it’s in my genes. You’ll see me carrying a cup of coffee everywhere I go at any time of day.
What was your worst subject in elementary school?
Music. I love music, but I never was good at playing instruments; I’m even worse at singing.
What’s a secret (or not-so-secret) talent you have?
I can hold my breath for more than 3 minutes. My record was 4m30s when I practiced freediving and yoga.
If you could pick any superhero power, what would it be and why?
I love to travel, so flying would be my superhero power of choice. Wouldn’t it be great to go on vacation to a different exotic location around the world every weekend??
What’s your best credit/money tip?
Maximize your credit card rewards.
