Interviewing is broken. Karat professionalizes interviewing.
Hiring top talent is a critical activity for all companies, yet the way organizations interview candidates is broken. Interviewing is a time consuming process that is rarely data-driven.

Hiring top talent is a critical activity for all companies, and yet the way organizations interview candidates is broken. Interviewing is a time consuming process that is rarely data-driven, and often yields mixed results. At most companies, engineers have to squeeze interviews in between their busy workdays and many do this only out of obligation.
At Karat, we see a massive opportunity to transform the interviewing experience for every candidate and company. We source and train a global network of software engineers to conduct the first rounds of interviews for leading tech companies like Intuit, Interana, BuildZoom and Minted. Our unique approach recognizes interviewing as a valuable craft, treats candidates with utmost respect and is grounded in rich interview data.
We believe that our professional, data-driven approach to interviewing talent will serve to unlock the potential of engineers across the world and the companies they choose to work at.
