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.
After working to make financial progress possible for over 100 million Americans and nearly 3 million Canadians, Credit Karma is continuing to aggressively grow our business in Canada. We’re looking for a leader to advance and run our Canadian business. Success is scaling Canada's largest personal finance business by engaging consumers through amazing product experience and our partners by enabling a relatively new customer acquisition channel. The Director will work directly alongside our Chief Revenue Officer, in direct leadership over Credit Karma Canada. This position will be based in San Francisco, but may require frequent travel.
