Interview Engineers facilitate technical interviews with software developers around the world. They use Karat questions and the Karat Platform to conduct interviews, and are paired with a mentor. As an Interview Engineer, you’ll learn how to create inclusive hiring processes by mitigating bias, improving hiring signal, and completing objective structured write-ups. These skills are critical to hiring and managing teams in startups and large enterprises.
Some Interview Engineers do five to 10 interviews per week, others do as many as 25. With each interview you’re gaining skills that make technical assessments more equitable for candidates and effective for teams.
60-minute technical interviews are a chance to connect with software engineers like you. Take a break from a heads-down day of coding and facilitate an interview with a developer looking their next job.
Karat Interview Engineers are professional interviewers and seasoned software developers. Some are start-up founders. Some are independent consultants with established businesses. Many are full-time engineers, some at the biggest companies in the world, and some from cool little companies you might not have heard of. We’re a diverse group of experts, located in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and around the world. What we have in common is a desire to make interviews better.
“Being an Interview Engineer at Karat literally changed my life. When I was introduced to Karat through a friend, I discovered the most flexible job I’ve ever had and got to leverage my tech background fully remotely.”
Chris Cook, Interview Engineer
“My work at Karat matters because not only am I helping companies conduct interviews, but I am also helping the candidates to have a good experience during the process. I love my job here!”
Julia Gao, Interview Engineer
“There is a good feedback culture here. Instead of you having to advocate for yourself, there is already a tested system in place to move you along and make you a better Interview Engineer. I just feel like there are people watching out for me and helping me to become better.”
Helin Shiah, Interview Engineer Mentor
We equip Interview Engineers with Karat’s advanced interview training and best practices, comprehensive guidelines, a team of relationship managers, one-to-one mentorship, and the Karat Platform. The Karat Platform drives structured technical interviews, provides frameworks for structured write-ups aligned to the role, and produces a data-informed recommendation facilitated by — but independent of — the interviewer.

Interview Engineers must complete an onboarding program that teaches Karat’s proven best practices for delivery of the interview — including how to reduce bias. With the guidance of a mentor, new Interview Engineers practice delivering interviews and improve through feedback until they are ready to represent Karat and the hiring company.
New Interview Engineers gain mastery of the Karat code of content and their first interview question. They are supported by a mentor Interview Engineer.
Interview Engineers practice delivering one interview question and their mentor identifies next steps for getting “interview ready.”
Interview Engineers conduct interviews with early career candidates while feedback helps them refine their skills.
By now, Interview Engineers have mastered a large library of questions and conduct more advanced interviews.
Community is a big part of the Interview Engineering experience. The personal relationships we develop, the learning we get from interacting with peers around the world, the exposure to cool projects, and new perspectives. All these things are fostered by a strong, active and inclusive community like no other, and fueled by pride in a mission that matters.
