BuildZoom, Meet Karat

BuildZoom faced the challenge of keeping up with customer demand while concurrently hiring top engineers. Karat augmented BuildZoom’s hiring bandwidth with a network of experienced technical interviewers to conduct all first-round interviews.

BuildZoom was able to cast a wider net by assessing all candidates and quickly identified the top performers, thereby accelerating the hiring process.
