Although Maria got an electrical engineering degree, she mostly held jobs in translation and finance. She rediscovered programming, however, when she moved to the Bay Area. Motivated by the exciting opportunities for engineers, Maria interned as a programmer and attended a web development boot camp, where a friend encouraged her to become part of Credit Karma's amazing mission-driven culture.
Maria's mornings start at 10 AM. After her daily stand-up meeting with a team of Credit Karma engineers, designers, and product managers, Maria settles into building one of the company's newest product efforts. Following an Agile process, Maria works on a LAMP stack with React-based applications.
