People Operations Generalist


Great interviews are engineered. Come help Karat make every interview predictive, fair and enjoyable.

The status quo for technical interviewing doesn’t meet the needs of candidates or hiring companies. Haphazard interview experiences, subjective evaluations, and lack of capacity and expertise mean too many companies miss their hiring goals and miss out on great software engineers. At Karat, it's our mission to create better outcomes for companies and candidates by making every interview predictive, fair, and enjoyable.

Karat conducts first-round technical interviews on behalf of companies including Indeed, Atlassian, Intuit, Peloton, The New York Times and Wayfair. We do this through a community of Interview Engineers who are equipped with Karat's interviewing platform, 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 and most robust dataset of structured interview intelligence to produce never-before-seen hiring analytics.

As the world continues to transition to virtual work, and the fairness of hiring practices in the tech industry come under greater scrutiny, Karat is uniquely positioned to be a valuable, strategic partner as companies transition to 100% remote hiring.

Founded in 2014, Karat is a privately held and venture-funded company based in Seattle.

People Team at Karat

Our People team is committed to creating authentic, thoughtful, and inclusive experiences for all Karateers. We support contractors and employees throughout the world and prioritize operational excellence and consistency in everything we do. As our People Operations Generalist, you will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of Karat’s people systems in partnership with other teams (e.g. BambooHR, GoodHire, Greenhouse, Gusto), ensure policy compliance and upkeep, and develop/iterate our Learning and Development initiatives. We are a lean team, so additional projects are available in each of these areas. This is a very “roll up your sleeves” position, though our ideal candidate will strategically help create the next evolution of our programs, values, and processes through thought leadership and connection.

Karat’s HQ is based in Seattle, Washington, but we are open to remote candidates for this role (within the U.S.). Please be advised that to best align with our current People team, you must be available between 9:00 am PT and 4:00 pm PT.

Please note: submissions without cover letters will not be reviewed.
