Software Engineer - Penny Team

San Francisco, CA
What we’re building

Credit Karma’s mission is to make financial progress accessible to everyone. To deliver on that, we’re building tools that cut through the complexity and stress of managing your finances. It started with free credit scores and now includes everything from free ID monitoring to free tax filings.

As part of that expansion, Credit Karma acquired Penny in March 2018. Now, the team’s goal is to have empathetic, nuanced conversations with Credit Karma’s 80 million members through a conversational UI. Those conversations are evolving rapidly, but have a common theme of helping people understand their finances and taking steps to improve their financial health.
