San Francisco, CA - Engineering Full-time
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.

Credit Karma’s Recommendation Systems team is looking for a technical leader to help craft how Credit Karma personalizes offsite marketing to our members.

Our vision is to run highly effective off-site advertising campaigns on Google, Facebook and many other sites that are profoundly personalized for each member, fully tracked and deeply automated. We advertise off-site via Search Engine Marketing and Display Ads. Your role will be to drive the architecture, design and implementation of a holistic system that optimizes personalization for offsite marketing.
