7Systems GmbH is a German company that develops software and hardware solutions for the safety industry, with a special focus on fire detection and alarm systems.

Jürgen Vogel is 7Systems GmbH’s Managing Director. 7Systems’ team had open positions for software developers and needed to accurately and reliably assess candidates’ skills.

Challenges

A major challenge for Jürgen and the team was their inability to assess candidates’ technical competence levels accurately. 

Technical skills and knowledge are key to the success of 7Systems’ employees. Due to the complexity of the roles, candidates need a very specific skill set to perform well. 

Evaluating candidates’ software development skills proved challenging, since 7Systems’ resources were limited and the team simply didn’t have the time to assess applicants’ skills manually.

For this reason, the team was looking for a way to evaluate applicants’ skills and knowledge accurately and reliably, so they could make the right hiring decisions. 

Solution

7Systems implemented TestGorilla’s platform early with their first hires, as they wanted to set up a suitable hiring process right from the beginning. 

The team chose TestGorilla, as it seemed to be the best solution available and matched their needs to evaluate applicants’ skills. 

TestGorilla’s pre-employment tests are an essential part of the hiring process now; all candidates who apply for software development roles take a skills assessment. This gives Jürgen a good understanding of their competencies and knowledge.

Using TestGorilla has proven to be an efficient way to screen applicants and evaluate their skills objectively.

Results

TestGorilla’s assessments enable Jürgen and the team to get an accurate understanding of candidates’ skills and knowledge, and help them make the right hiring decisions. 

The assessments help predict job performance accurately. Candidates who did well on the tests are also successful in their roles. 

The platform also helps 7Systems make the recruitment process faster and more efficient, and keep the time to hire low. Thanks to the optimization of their hiring process, 7Systems can now invest more time into their core business processes, such as supporting their customers and providing them with the right development solutions.

TestGorilla helps 7Systems evaluate applicants’ skills accurately and objectively, and allows the team to save a significant amount of time and money when hiring new employees.
