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.
The Site Operations Team at Credit Karma is looking for a Senior Site Reliability Engineer. The Site Operations Team owns overall site health for Credit Karma’s suite of products to ensure that members are always able to access our suite of services. We accomplish our mission by acting as a force multiplier for engineers across Credit Karma who own production services and features.

We are looking for an engineer with strong operations and software engineering background to help drive overall site reliability to a premier level. This is a high visibility role at Credit Karma where you will be empowered to drive operational best practices across the Engineering org for production web applications at scale. In Site Operations, minutes matter. Since we are always striving for the fastest time to repair during member impacting incidents, we are looking for collaborators that enjoy quickly solving technical puzzles. You will be dedicated to ensuring the stability and resiliency of the Credit Karma experience, visited by over 80 million members.
