The Nerds Behind Credit Karma: Ishan
19 Comments |
Hey, everyone! We hope you’ve been having as much fun meeting the Credit Karma team as we’ve been having introducing them to you! Today, you’ll be learning more about Ishan, one of our awesome software engineers!
Ishan spent a period of his life in Wisconsin, so “it’s always summer for [him] in SF.” He also writes with more exclamation points than anyone I know, averaging 1.6 per sentence in his introduction email to the team. Either that, or he was just really excited to join the team. Either way, hurray for exclamation points!
Learn more about Ishan below!
What’s your title at Credit Karma?
Describe in 25 words or less what you do.
I help the Communications and Marketing Team, working on CK’s mailing framework and handling anything related to emails to our beloved users.
How long have you worked at CK?
A little under 3 months.
What’s your favorite thing about working at CK?
Awesome people, awesome work, awesome product, awesome workspace– TOTAL AWESOMENESS.
What’s your favorite snack in the CK kitchen?
I love bagels and Cliff Bars!
What is something your coworkers probably don’t know about you?
I have read works of Shakespeare and have taken part in various plays in high school back in India. I almost always played the role of Bassanio. (If you don’t know who he is, here’s a hint: he’s from Venice!)
What was your worst subject in elementary school?
Anything related to drawing. I am a miserable painter.
What’s a secret (or not-so-secret) talent you have?
People say I can sing, and I feel I can sing too, but only at a very low pitch. Increase the pitch and my voice undergoes crazy frequency changes. Also, I can pick up any sport really quickly. I’m currently working on my ping-pong skills here at CK!
If you could pick any superhero power, what would it be and why?
I would pick Sherlock’s ability to gather information about a person just by looking at them… basically GOOGLE GLASS!
What’s your best credit/money tip?
Don’t move your debt around– instead, pay it off. Keep monitoring your credit.
