"Interviewing with Kat was like a refreshing breeze on a sunny day. Her engaging and friendly approach made the whole hour feel like it swoop by in just 15 minutes.

Ivan C.

Flutter Developer

"I had a coding interview with Kat. I felt I could relax and could focus on the task, without worrying about my fears which normally make me perform badly. For example I tend to think one should not be silent as it shows lack of expertise. But she assured me it was ok to remain silent for a while. That allowed me to think, read carefully and show my real skills."

George H. Lewis

Bryan M.

Front-end Developer, React.js

"II have had a many in coding interviews and the outcome has varied a lot, yet I had the same skills. It seems to me an important factor is the personality match between interviewer and the interviewee. This interview with Kat was one of the best I have had because we had a similar personalities or at least she said not to worry about the things I would normally worry. So, if I can suggest anything is for the interviewer is to firstly identify the personality type of the interviewee and try to set them in a state that they are calmed and can freely express their ingenuity. For example, in coding interviews I feel like if I don't feel the silence I am regarded as not competent which inhibits me from thinking. Kat really assured me it was okay to be silent, so I did and could fully concentrate on the coding task!"

George H. Lewis

Bethany J.

Data Engineer

"I had the pleasure of meeting Kat in my last interview stage. I can confidently say that she is an exceptional tech interviewer. From the moment I entered the virtual interview room, I felt at ease thanks to the welcoming and professional atmosphere that she created. During the live coding exercise, Kat provided clear instructions and guidance that allowed me to showcase my abilities effectively.

I greatly appreciated that she highlighted that she is not expecting you to be a robot or encyclopedia that will know everything. She was patient and always willing to explain concepts and answer any questions I had, which was invaluable to me.

In summary, I highly recommend Kat as a tech interviewer. She creates a positive and relaxed atmosphere during the interview process, which allows candidates to perform at their best. Her professionalism, structured approach, and communication skills make her an exceptional interviewer."
