Hey there! It’s that exciting time of the month where we get to meet another awesome member of the Credit Karma team! Last month, we introduced you to Alex, one of our front-end developers.

Today’s interview features Henry, one of our talented business development analysts. Some fun facts about Henry: he loves to trade currencies during his time off and likes to treat his friends out to lunch when the EUR/YEN moves in the right direction.

Read on to learn more about Henry!

The Interview

What’s your title at Credit Karma?
Business Development Analyst

Describe in 25 words or less what you do.
I dig a hole and bury myself in data to see what helps our members. Help me help you!

How long have you worked at CK?
I joined in March 2013, so 3 incredible months and counting!

What’s your favorite thing about working at CK?
Besides working with everyone in CK and helping our members, I like randomly shooting my fellow coworkers with Nerf guns and pretending it wasn’t me. If I’m caught, I just smile and wave. Quick breaks playing Smash Brothers is also funzies.

What’s your favorite snack in the CK kitchen?
Cliff Bars

What is something your coworkers probably don’t know about you?
I’m a pretty big comic book fan and I love randomly messaging people with funny one liners.

What was your worst subject in elementary school?
Music class… my voice is so monotone that people can’t tell the difference between me talking and singing!

What’s a secret (or not-so-secret) talent you have?
I can recall the names of most comic book superheroes, old and new.

If you could pick any superhero power, what would it be and why?
All of Superman’s power set. I’d be like the swiss army knife of superpowers.

What’s your best credit/money tip?
Never spend beyond your means and always research before making any type of investments. Believe me, it will definitely pay off in the long run.

Want to meet more members of the Credit Karma team?

Meet Ezra, Jonathan, Cathy, Greg, Danielle, Jason, Andrew, and Alex!

Stay tuned as we continue to reveal the nerds behind Credit Karma!

Kind of wanting to go Karaoke-ing with Henry so I can hear him sing,

  1. It’s always good to meet and know new people. Nice meeting you Henry. It was nice knowing we have something in common. Aide from passion for personal finance, the monotone voice. lol

  2. Your ad about a free credit report is so full of crap. Of course you have to sign up and then it is almost impossible to cancel!

  3. All credit scores lack one basic critical factor in their calculation, assets. If a person has assets, the more likely one is likely to pay up since one has the ability to pay. This factor has to count more than credit inquiries, even credit history, or any other factor. Yet it is not counted at all. I do believe that this will tend to make the score lower and thus make more money for the financial providers. Conspiracy????? First company to incorporate this factor will have an advantage over all the other companies.

  5. So far, so good. You get out of life what you invest it in. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes,or friends with some one totally different than yourself. As a wise professor said to me once: You are NOT wise nor clever so shut up, set down and PAY attention! so I’ll sign out now….ha ha ha Love life with a will, you never know when the hands of time will stop.
