  • 100% coverage of health, dental, & vision insurance
  • Flexible work environment
  • Unlimited time off
  • Meaningful equity in the company's success
  • Equipped for success with a new MacBook Pro + monitor & whatever other gear you need
  • Interviewing is a universal experience, but it is no one’s job

    Interviews are the gateway between people and jobs--they are a critical connection point. And yet, while the interview is a universal experience, it has never been recognized as its own discipline. In fact, the vast majority of people conducting interviews receive no formal training in how to do so.

    Karat is the market leader in Interview Engineering

    At Karat, our mission is to make every interview predictive, fair, and enjoyable. To do so, we created and established the category of Interview Engineering.

    Founded in 2014, Karat is a privately held and venture-funded company based in Seattle. Key clients include Pinterest, PayPal, Citrix, Intuit, and InVision.
