powertofly approved What Karat, Inc. Has to Offer:

Karat is the first dedicated marketplace for technical interviewers. Their network of seasoned engineers conduct the first rounds of technical interviews for elite engineering companies. Karat's unique approach recognizes that people are central to the hiring process and that they can be supercharged by leveraging machine learning and Karat's rich database of the world's interviews. Karat knows it's important to live a balanced life so they take care of their team with some great perks.

  • 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
  • Great interviews are engineered.  Come help Karat make every interview predictive, fair and enjoyable.

    The status quo for technical interviewing doesn’t meet the needs of candidates or hiring companies. Haphazard interview experiences, subjective evaluations, and lack of capacity and expertise mean too many companies miss their hiring goals and miss out on great software engineers. At Karat, it's our mission to create better outcomes for companies and candidates by making every interview predictive, fair, and enjoyable.

    Karat conducts first-round technical interviews on behalf of companies including Indeed, Atlassian, Intuit, Peloton, The New York Times and Wayfair. We do this through a community of Interview Engineers who are equipped with Karat's interviewing platform, battle-tested questions, and data-informed best practices. 

    The result is highly predictive and fair interviews at scale that candidates truly enjoy. Karat has amassed the largest and most robust dataset of structured interview intelligence to produce never-before-seen hiring analytics. 

    As the world continues to transition to virtual work, and the fairness of hiring practices in the tech industry come under greater scrutiny, Karat is uniquely positioned to be a valuable, strategic partner as companies transition to 100% remote hiring.

    Founded in 2014, Karat is a privately held and venture-funded company based in Seattle.
