    Interviewing is a universal experience, but it is no one’s job

    Interviews are the gateway between people and jobs--they are a critical connection point. And yet, while the interview is a universal experience, it has never been recognized as its own discipline. In fact, the vast majority of people conducting interviews receive no formal training in how to do so.


    Karat is the market leader in Interview Engineering

    At Karat, our mission is to make every interview predictive, fair, and enjoyable. To do so, we created and established the category of Interview Engineering.


    Founded in 2014, Karat is a privately held and venture-funded company based in Seattle. Key clients include Pinterest, PayPal, Citrix, Intuit, and InVision.

    Karat Interview Engineers are a community of experienced software developers who are equipped with best practices and technology needed to provide the most predictive, fair, and enjoyable interviews to software engineering job candidates. Interview Engineers include software development managers, software engineers, and freelancers covering the full technology stack. As an Interview Engineer, you will interview job candidates using the Karat approach and interviewing infrastructure in a wide variety of roles on behalf of leading companies worldwide.


    Flexible, high impact work that is compensated at highly competitive rates.

    As an Interview Engineer, you will be compensated at highly competitive rates for your interviewing expertise.  The time commitment is flexible---many of our interviews happen on nights and weekends.  Some experts do 10 interviews/week while others do over 25 interviews/week.  You can work from anywhere, anytime.  You will sharpen your interviewing skills and transform the interviewing experience for every candidate and company.

    About You

    Experienced software engineers who believe that interviewing is a first-class job

    Strong oral and written communication skills

    Able to empathize with candidates and provide actionable feedback

    A genuine desire to continuously improve the Karat service and technical interviewing

    In keeping with our beliefs and goals, no employee or applicant will face discrimination or harassment based on: race, color, ancestry, national origin, religion, age, gender, marital/domestic partner status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability status, or veteran status. Above and beyond discrimination and harassment based on “protected categories,” we also strive to prevent other subtler forms of inappropriate behavior (i.e., stereotyping) from ever gaining a foothold in our office. Whether blatant or hidden, barriers to success have no place at Karat.
