Hey folks! It’s time for another edition of Nerds Behind Credit Karma. Last month, we introduced you to Pedro, one of our amazing Senior Products Managers. Today, you get to meet Sean, one of our awesome Data Analysts.
Sean likes to go on adventures by the water: tubing, boat parties, floating down the river, and kayaking, just to name a few. He actually went kayaking recently at Alki Beach in Seattle. Just keep swimming, Sean, just keep swimming.
What’s your title at Credit Karma?
Business Development Data Analyst
Describe in 25 words or less what you do.
I use data to understand the customer and ensure we only show them offers they actually care about.
How long have you worked at CK?
What’s your favorite thing about working at CK?
As an analyst from a big bank, I’m used to waiting 2 years before knowing if a good decision was made. At Credit Karma, we have those same answers in 2 days; that blows my mind!
What’s your favorite snack in the CK kitchen?
Blueberry Pecan KIND Bars
What is something your coworkers probably don’t know about you?
I didn’t learn to read until I was in the 4th grade.
What was your worst subject in elementary school?
What’s a secret (or not-so-secret) talent you have?
I picked up swing dancing in Dallas last year.
If you could pick any superhero power, what would it be and why?
Teleportation, because I could live anywhere/do anything.
What’s your best credit/money tip?
Don’t buy GAP insurance at a car dealership since dealers normally sell GAP insurance at 3x its actual price. It’s better to call up your car insurance company because they’ll offer you a much better price.

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!

Hey everyone! As you might know, we've been introducing you to another awesome member of the Credit Karma team each month on the blog. Well, be excited... it's that time again! Meet Chris, one of our talented infrastructure engineers! Other than knowing he's a whiz at photography, I actually don't know much about Chris. But I do know that he saved me from being the "new kid" at Credit Karma for very long... he started the day after me! And for that, I will be eternally grateful. Since I wasn't able to tell you much about Chris, it's probably best that you hear from him directly. Keep on scrolling!
