Who is Karat?

Karat is the world's leader in conducting first-round technical interviews. Our network of experienced interview engineers have conducted over 20,000 technical interviews on behalf of clients including Indeed, Pinterest, Intuit, and Citrix. We continuously analyze our interview data to get smarter and more predictive with every interview we conduct. As a result, our clients reclaim 60% of engineering hours per hire, accelerate achievement of their hiring goal by 25%, and offer an exceptional experience with 95% of candidates rating their experience as positive.

Our Mission
Our mission is to be the world’s interviewer. We conduct highly predictive interviews for our clients with rigor, humanity and fairness. Karat helps companies hire the engineers they need to create the future and helps ensure that engineers are in jobs that maximize their strengths.

Karat is creating the industry of professional interviewing.

Hiring top talent is a critical activity for all companies, yet the way organizations interview candidates is broken.  Karat professionalizes technical interviewing. Karat’s solution saves engineering teams thousands of valuable hours. Moreover, Karat leverages the interview data to generate valuable analytics so that our clients can design world-class hiring processes. In doing so, we believe that Karat is uniquely positioned to make technical hiring a transparent, unbiased, and delightful experience for both candidates and companies alike.
