Senior Software Engineer, Data

Credit Karma is a mission-driven company, focused on championing financial progress for our more than 100 million members in the U.S., Canada and U.K.  While we're best known for pioneering free credit scores, our members turn to us for tips as they work on their  financial goals, including helping them monitor their credit, identity monitoring, searching for credit cards, shopping for loans (car, home and personal), filing their taxes with Credit Karma Tax and growing their savings* -- all for free. Credit Karma has grown significantly through the years: we've added more than 70 million members in the last five years alone and now have more than 1,100 employees across our offices in San Francisco, Charlotte, Los Angeles, Leeds, London and soon Oakland.

As a Senior Software Engineer on the Data team, you’ll work with a talented team of engineers to improve Credit Karma’s behavioral analytics frameworks that capture user behavior in real time. You’ll help to build secure, scalable, fast, and developer friendly tools to make capturing analytics within our web and native apps seamless and easy.

The team spends their time day to day building analytics tools for other engineers within Credit Karma, helping teams solve tricky bugs, gathering feedback, building test automation, enhancing data quality monitoring, and managing our client side analytics frameworks. You will work with cutting edge tools such as GraphQL, Typescript, React, Scala, and Google Cloud. We are looking for software engineers at all levels.

If you enjoy working in a collaborative environment where everyone can have their say while still being able to set and hit deadlines, then this is the role for you.
