We started Karat in 2014 based on a simple premise: that interviewing was slowing down innovation in the tech industry and at tech-enabled companies.
Leading companies were spending cycles trying to keep up with interviews instead of making hiring a strategic capability and pursuing opportunities at the heart of their business. Karat accelerates our clients’ ability to introduce game-changing products by providing the expertise, methodologies and bandwidth required to hire top technical talent.
Partnering closely with our clients, we conduct technical interviews on their behalf through a network of highly trained software engineers. We have professionalized the craft of technical interviewing and we make hiring a customer-centric experience for candidates that is grounded in skills, not pedigree.
Karat moves well beyond interviewing to become a strategic partner to our clients as they look to design scalable, consistent hiring processes. Leveraging the data gained from our interviewing service, we engineer improvements in how our clients conduct on-site interview loops, source candidates, and close top talent.
Today, we are the largest company of our kind, conducting thousands of technical interviews every month while disrupting traditional standards for how leading companies hire talent.
