4 Comments | Twitter | |


Hi! Ready to meet another awesome member of the Credit Karma team? Last week, we introduced you to Andrew, one of our talented web designers.

This week, we decided to interview Ian, one of our software developers. Apparently Ian has promised to bring in a guitar and sing a song for the Credit Karma team sometime. 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…
