Interview Kickstart is the leading global platform for Technical Interview Preparation. Established in 2014, our Mission is to work with Software Engineers to help Uplevel their careers significantly by helping them transition into their dream jobs at Top-tier companies. Students from our program routinely get offers from Google, Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Apple, LinkedIn, Uber and other top players after completing our program.We currently are the only predictable path to becoming a software engineer at a top-tier company.We are driven by a set of core beliefs:First: Successful Interview Prep cannot be a spit and polish job. The only way to become part of a strong technical team is to elevate your craft to that level. ie Technical interviews cannot be ‘hacked’, to nail them one must invest time in becoming a better engineer Second: It only makes sense to learn from engineers who themselves have made the cut. Ie one needs to prepare by learning from Engineers who are currently already working and Hiring at Google, Facebook, Amazon and other top companies Third: One needs a Methodology that caters to a superior technical curriculum, retention and sustained motivation. Ie Structured Interview Preparation involving a comprehensive methodology is to only proper of consistent career uplevelling Our offering is a derivative of the above beliefs. Teaching platform at the heart of what we do. Our instructors, mock interviewers and mentors come from Google, Facebook, Amazon, LinkedIn, Uber, Airbnb, Snap and other Top-tier companies. The remote and in-person programs they lead, follow a rigorous methodology for phenomenal results. Our DNA is deeply technical, given our founder backgrounds. Our technical curriculum includes a focus on Algorithms, Data Structures,System Design and other Computer Science topics, with an eye on technical interviews. We work with both, individual contributors as well as Engineering Managers. We are proud of curriculum that is highly iterated, evolved and in-depth, a teaching methodology that helps our students internalize difficult topics more easily, and reinforcement techniques that drive solid retention of concepts. Beyond technical skills, we work closely with each student on a wide range of crucial Career Skills. These include coaching on productivity and study habits, writing effective resumes, developing LinkedIn profiles, networking, answering behavioral questions, securing more interviews, effective recruiter communication, positioning and leveling, and of course, salary negotiations, among other things.Ongoing testing and feedback loops help personalize the course for each student. We have regular coding tests as well as in depth Mock interviews with the same industry practitioners ie Top company engineers and Hiring Managers. These interviews simulate actual company interviews but offer detailed feedback to students from the horse's mouth. Feedback cuts through the fluff and pin-points possible improvements. This helps students improve significantly in a short time. They overcome interview anxiety and the fear of interviewing, apart from improving technically. All our mentors are extremely vested in the students’ success.Our track record speaks for itself:As of this writing (Jan 2020), 2500+ engineers have already trusted us to uplevel in their careers. We routinely see offers that are over $250,000; not only in the Bay area but across the US.We have seen multiple offers in the range of $600,000 plus. Yes, that is every year.
