Interview Kickstart has enabled over 3500 engineers to uplevel.
Technical interviews at FAANG+ companies are highly competitive and difficult to crack. The interview processes at these companies filter in less than 2% of software engineers who apply. To land FAANG+ offers, your problem-solving, design, and career skills need to be spotless.
FAANG companies pay 50% higher salaries than most other tech companies. Therefore, they naturally attract a sea of talent. Given the stiff competition and the ardent interview process, nailing these interviews is only possible by adopting the right strategy complemented by the right guidance from the right professionals.
That’s precisely what the Interview Kickstart curriculum achieves.
At Interview Kickstart, our courses have an exhaustive curriculum, covering in-depth concepts and problems in data structures, algorithms, and distributed systems design, along with domain, behavioral, and career skills.
Through years of experience, we know exactly what it takes to nail the most challenging tech interviews — the Interview Kickstart Curriculum reflects just that!

“How I received 14 offers, including FAANG, after completing Interview Kickstart’s Program” — Rupesh Dabbir
Interview Kickstart (IK) provides you a solid platform to not only strengthen your algorithm and interview game, I've had the pleasure of meeting some of the best/brightest minds in the industry (faculty and students included). It was a humble experience, to say the least.
If you are looking for more than just a Bootcamp to improve your algorithmic skills or interview skills, I would wholeheartedly suggest IK.
Soham and their team have done a phenomenal job in making sure students get the right resources to set their path for success!
I was part of their2017 batch and got 14 offers, including FAANG!
“How I got an offer from Google after completing Interview Kickstart’s program” — Derek Chung
I enrolled with Interview Kickstart after going through many interviews that didn’t work out and couldn’t find the root cause. I found my experience at Interview Kickstart very useful in a few aspects:
1) Feedback from interviewers at the kind of companies I wanted to get in, both good and bad. Having failed many interviews, I was eager to find out what I was missing. After going through a number of mock interviews, I learned that it was not what I had thought it would be. Having this understanding of my strengths and weaknesses helped me maintain an objective view on my performances.
2) Support in doing lots of coding questions with good coverage. For someone who’s organized and disciplined, this benefit probably wouldn’t apply. I lacked both in my preparation, so getting assignments helped me focus.
3) Support and guidance in going through actual interviews. Soham kept close touch with me and offered a lot of guidance and encouragement navigating the interview scene. This was quite helpful, as it was not smooth sailing right after the program.
