What developer candidates need to know about the Karat interview.
Why companies work with Karat
Great candidate experiences start with a real-time technical interview with an experienced developer.
Growing engineering teams are often stuck in a catch-22: they need their engineers to interview and hire new team members, but also meet product goals. Companies partner with Karat to add technical interviewing bandwidth they need to hire and ship great products.
Karat clients get accurate hiring signal and candidates get a fair and enjoyable interview. A code test won’t achieve this result, nor will team members who are hurrying through tech screens with candidates. Working with Karat gives candidates access to live technical interviews, conducted by a software engineer, 24/7.
Why hiring teams prefer live technical assessments
Karat developer interviews are conducted by Interview Engineers. They are experienced developers who use questions aligned to the technical expectations of the hiring company. This ensures a consistent and objective experience.
