Wanting to leave the entertainment and game development industries, the Karma founders (Justin, Mike, and Zach) started to take notice in the booming new peer to peer economy - the sharing economy. What they started seeing however was that it was difficult to know who to trust and be trusted when you had little to no reputation information on a sharing economy site on which you were a new user. From this observation, Karma was born. Justin, Mike, and Zach founded Karma on a foundation of trust, respect, and simply making it easier for good people to do business with each other and reap the benefits. Our internal and quite informal tagline is "Don't be an asshole." As informal as it is, this is the way we approach almost everything at the company - the way we treat each other and the new people we bring on to the team.
Interviewing and Hiring Engineers
Our interview process is quite simple - you'll start with an initial 15 minute pre-screen call to quickly go over any questions you have about Karma and to begin to determine if we're great culture fits for each other.
If that goes well, we'll bring you into the office (if local - if remote, video call will be scheduled) to meet the team. At that point you will be able to talk with our CTO about our codebase and job expectations.
It's likely that by the end of that same day we will be able to make a decision on whether or not an offer will be extended.
Growth and Culture
We need to grow, period. Our product is complicated, and our dev team is three (very strong) members. They need more support! The best perk you'll experience working at Karma is being on the ground floor of a small start up that has expectations to scale to a great level. Because of our small size, our employees wear many hats and are involved in all conversations that impact the direction, growth, and design of the product and company. Also, being on the ground floor means there are limitless growth and learning possibilities.
We love our company culture. We have flexible hours and schedules, unlimited vacation and sick days, and remote working opportunities. That said, we have a lot of work to do and love doing it together. Our goal is to treat everyone like a human and not just a cog in the machine. You'd be joining a respectful, tight-knit, fun-loving team, and we aim to keep it that way.
