For software engineering job candidates, technical interview experiences can range from haphazard to outright hazing. At Karat, it’s our mission to break down the gatekeeping and barriers that push people out of careers in tech by making every interview predictive, fair, and enjoyable.
Karat conducts first-round technical interviews on behalf of companies like Indeed, Intuit, Pinterest, and Wayfair. We do this through a community of Interview Engineers who are equipped with Karat's interviewing infrastructure, 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, most robust dataset of structured interview intelligence to produce never-before-seen hiring analytics.
