The Nerds Behind Credit Karma: Riley
30 Comments |
Hey everyone, it’s that exciting time of the month where we get to introduce you to another valuable member of the Credit Karma team! This month, we’re introducing you to Riley, one of our skilled software engineers!
I don’t know if you can tell from his picture, but Riley has quite the propensity for wearing tie-dye. The picture to the right only gives a sneak peek, but you can see a picture of Riley in all of his tie-dye glory here.
Want to learn more about Riley? Read on!
What’s your title at Credit Karma?
Describe in 25 words or less what you do.
I work on the Communications and Marketing team, mostly optimizing the email system and generating boring reports.
How long have you worked at CK?
Just over a year.
What’s your favorite thing about working at CK?
Playing ping pong every day.
What’s your favorite snack in the CK kitchen?
Roasted salted almonds.
What is something your coworkers probably don’t know about you?
I navigate by sight, not by street name. In the past year, I’ve only picked up a handful of nearby street names, but I’ve got a decent mental map of the nearby area. There are just no labels on it.
What was your worst subject in elementary school?
Writing… I never learned to write cursive.
What’s a secret (or not-so-secret) talent you have?
I can find things (missing sweaters, lost keys, you name it), even if I’ve never been there before or haven’t seen the lost item before. I swear it’s genetic, because my dad can do it too.
If you could pick any superhero power, what would it be and why?
Flight, preferably through levitation but if it required ten feet of wings, I’d still take it. Because soaring through the air would be the best way to travel anywhere in the world.
What’s your best credit/money tip?
Keep track of your spending. If you know how much you’ve spent each month, you can make more informed spending decisions in the future.

I’m sure I’m not the only one who’d be interested in seeing Riley with 10 foot wings…
