Our Recruitment Testing Philosophy is simple: “Align the recruitment tests for a role with the actual duties that a candidate must fulfill on a daily basis, if hired for that role.”
We believe that this alignment will help Recruiters maximize their Interview Hit Rate and reduce Cost per Hire
Ask all interested candidates to take the Technical Architect Screening Test hosted by CodeGround Recruitment Testing Platform. [Link to Sample test]
Acme Inc is a SAAS based solution vendor with 2000 customers. Each customer consumes their services, exposed via REST API over HTTPS, by making numerous API calls (~70 per minute per customer). Acme Inc uses a Load Balancer to distribute customer API calls among numerous servers.
The Main Application Database is optimized to handle large volumes of concurrent transactions. Only a very small fraction of the incoming API calls ( <0.1% ) deals with reading / modifying customer billing information and therefore an external third party SAAS-based CRM Vendor is used for handling billing and account management.
Recently, Product Management has decided that in case of a customer having overdue amounts (unpaid bills), their account would be marked as 'suspended' in the third party CRM vendor. The requirement is that Acme Inc's services should no longer be available to such 'suspended' customers.
Engineering has proposed the following implementation to address this new requirement:
This change will be made to the code running in all servers. For each API request received: Check if customer is suspended by making a call to the CRM solution If customer is suspended Return an error Else Continue processing as before ...
Do you see anything wrong with this implementation? What alternative would you propose?
Candidates can take tests from the comfort of their homes, resulting in greater test participation
CodeGround has tie-ups with hundreds of Engineering Campuses across India.We will forward test links for job openings to Campus Placement Authorities who will circulate it among student body, ensuring high test participation
Interview only the candidates who have:
The platform provides capabilities to conduct all online assessments in a fair manner.
The candidate is monitored via webcam to ensure that there is no impersonation and that the candidate does not communicate with others in person or using mobile during the test.
The test window is proctored. If the candidate navigates away from the test window (for instance, to use google search), multiple warnings are given. If the warnings are ignored, the test is ended immediately and a red flag is raised in the report.
When code submissions by any two candidates are too similar (>85% similarity), a red flag is raised indicating possible code plagiarism.
Each candidate taking the test can be given a smaller set of questions that are randomly selected from a large pool of questions.
