Interview Scheduling

Many jobs in your feed are posted directly by staffing firms and employers. Applying and scheduling interviews for these jobs can be done from right within the app.

Let the work come to you.

The old ways of finding a job are no longer effective for most of the workforce. Outbound methods, like uploading resumes, searching the web, and sending cold emails are proving less and less effective.

They are scattered across numerous job boards, staffing agencies, and employer career pages and HR departments. Our goal with Knack for Engineers is to combine all of those job sources into a simple, unified mobile experience that you can access at any time right from your phone.

FAQs

FAQs

With so many engineers engaging with our platform, we expect plenty of feedback and criticism. We welcome it! A few common questions are answered below. Feel free to reach out if you have others.

Is there any charge for using Knack for Engineers?

No. It's a totally free app. Our infrastructure cost is negligible since we have a purely Serverless backend, and we monetize by charging staffing firms and employers for access to our amazing network of engineers. That allows us to build something completely free for engineers, which is as it should be.

How can I remove onsite roles from my feed?

Tap the filter icon in the top right corner of the Requests screen and de-select "Onsite". Then click "Done".

How long does it take to get the app set up?

Less than a minute. Most of the information required to create your profile is automatically extracted from your resume. There is a very short sequence of questions, such as work authorization, expected compensation, etc, and then you'll be able to view your personalized job feed immediately.

Will recruiters be hounding me through the app?

No. We are very selective about which staffing firms we work with, and any communication from recruiters will come to you in the form of interview requests. If an employer or recruiter wants to talk to you, you'll get a push notification stating as much. You can easily decline if you're not interested, or schedule the phone screen or interview directly from the app.

Do you post my profile to other sites?

No. We only share your profile with our own clients, which includes staffing firms and employers.

Does the app also have onsite jobs?

Yes, many of them. By default, Knack for Engineers shows both remote and onsite roles. The onsite roles shown in your feed are restricted to a geographical area surrounding the zip code you provide during signup.

How can I exclude certain skills from my feed?

Tap the filter icon in the top right corner of the Requests screen and add the skills you AREN'T interested in under the section titled "Exclude jobs requiring these skills".
