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?
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.

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

Know what time it is? ...It's time to meet another awesome member of the Credit Karma team! Last week, we introduced you to Ian, one of our amazing software developers. Today, meet Juan! Like what seems to be the vast majority of the Credit Karma team, Juan creates his own music. Because of this, I'm quickly becoming convinced that should all of our team collaborate together, we could create a pretty awesome band. Not a bad idea, if I do say so myself!

That hasn't happened yet, but I'm wondering whether he'd play something for us if I randomly brought in one of my guitars to the office... Want to learn more about Ian? Keep reading!!
