Karat Information Session & Technical Interview Prep
Wednesday, October 16, 2019 | 12:30 - 1:20 PM
Representatives from Karat will be on campus to give a presentation on working for their company, and provide a technical interview workshop.
Karat conducts technical interviews on behalf of organizations hiring software engineers. We do this through a community of Interview Engineers who are equipped with Karat’s interviewing infrastructure, battle-tested questions, and data-informed best practices. The result is highly predictive and fair interviews at scale that candidates truly enjoy. Karat has amassed the largest, most robust dataset of structured-interview intelligence to produce never-before-seen hiring analytics.
Founded in 2014, Karat is a privately held and venture-funded company based in Seattle. Key clients include Pinterest, PayPal, Citrix, Intuit, and InVision.
Technical interviews give companies a chance to evaluate how you approach real-world problems and the breadth of your technical skills. Sarabeth Jaffe, a software engineer at Karat.io, will be leading a workshop covering the basics of the technical interview process -- the types of questions you can expect, what hiring managers will be looking for, and how you can make yourself stand out. The workshop will include an interactive component where students can practice an example problem.
Prior to Karat.io, Sarabeth worked at Microsoft on visual studio build systems, as well as a Seattle-based non-profit that teaches full stack web development in the state’s second-largest prison.
Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP on iCareers to help us plan and reduce food waste.
