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.
Product Partnerships is a relatively newer area for Credit Karma. Traditionally, we’ve primarily partnered with banks and other financial institutions. As we explore new areas of product development - technology and value-based partnerships have taken a front-and-center position in our rapidly expanding offering. From delivering premium product benefits like Audit Defense through a third party accounting operation, to partnering with financial institutions and bank technology providers to offer Credit Karma Savings, the Product Partnerships team has become critical to the company's success.
We’re looking for a seasoned deal maker, with a strong affinity and understanding for product work, analytics and strategy. This person will focus on accelerating our product capabilities and drive revenue through strategic product partnerships. You will identify new product, data and revenue opportunities, work closely with new and existing partners, our executives, and large cross functional teams to drive initiatives focused on building value for us and our members!
