When Flatiron Health was acquired by Roche Pharmaceuticals, the Flatiron engineering and recruiting teams set a goal to hire 100 software engineers within a year to accelerate product development. They needed to scale an interviewing and hiring process that they trusted while freeing up engineering bandwidth to build products. And because diversity and inclusion are front of mind at Flatiron, they wanted a solution that would help them continue bringing in as wide a range of candidates as possible.
Flatiron couldn’t slow their pace of hiring, so they needed to scale an interviewing and hiring process that they trusted while freeing up engineering capacity. And because diversity and inclusion are front of mind at Flatiron, they needed a solution that would help them continue bringing in as wide a range of candidates as possible. They turned to Karat, whose highly-experienced Interview Engineers now conduct technical interviews on Flatiron’s behalf, providing unlimited interviewing capacity with a consistent process and data-driven recommendations.
“It’s really important to give all candidates an opportunity to show off their strengths because even the best resume doesn't really tell you the potential of a person,” said Cat Miller, CTO of Flatiron Health. “When we have limited capacity internally, when we only have so many interviews we can give and really need to hit a certain number of hires, it’s really easy to fall back into screening exactly the people you know you’ve hired before. Having increased capacity from Karat lets us bring in more types of folks that we might not have been able to interview before and increase diversity across a lot of angles.”
