Candidate Centric

Elite candidates demand a high-quality interview experience. Karat treats your candidates like valued customers.

24/7 Availability with Real-Time Customer Support

Karat’s 24/7 interviewing capacity caters to candidates’ schedules and ensures that any questions get resolved immediately. This flexibility draws in candidates who might otherwise not interview. In fact, 60% of candidates choose to interview on nights and weekends.

No one is going to interview perfectly all the time. If candidates feel like they did not show up with their “A” game, for whatever reason, we will interview them again no questions asked.

Fair, Professional Technical Assessment

Candidates appreciate the challenging nature of our interviews, the relevance of our questions, and the professionalism of our interviewers.

Personalized Attention from Top Company Leadership

Candidates who proceed to onsite interviews get maximum exposure to our clients’ technical leadership. The personalized focus leads to higher candidate satisfaction and close rates.

Our Platform

Based on our work with clients, we’ve learned that high-bar engineering organizations need to allocate the equivalent of one full-time engineer for every 20 engineering hires the company wants to make. Were this role to exist instead of the distributed responsibilities we see at most organizations, the dedicated hiring engineer would be responsible for conducting all first round interviews, designing consistent interview questions, normalizing interview data, partnering with recruiting to inform sourcing, and continuously driving hiring process improvements.

Karat is an organization’s dedicated hiring engineer, performing all of the functions above and more.
