Karat, founded in 2014, is a world leader in Interview Engineering. As organizations become software driven, access to engineering talent is critical to accelerate growth. Too often, the capacity for technical interviews becomes a constraint on that growth. Karat conducts first-round technical interviewing on behalf of companies who need to scale their software engineering team, but lack scale in interviewing expertise or infrastructure.
To provide flexible scheduling for all timezones, Karat has a network of Interviewing Engineers all over the world. The ability to ramp up their network of Interview Engineers world-wide poses a unique challenge:
"We needed a way to streamline and build a program to drive referrals within our global community of Interview Engineers. Drafted has enabled us to quickly connect to folks' networks and streamline the process for making referrals.”, says Cate Connolly, who manages the program.
The Karat talent team needed to scale hiring. With a diverse network of sourcing options in place, employee referrals were another lever they wanted to pull.
"Referrals from our diverse community of Interview Engineers is one of our strongest pipelines”
