About the Apache Spark for Data Engineers test

In today’s era of big data, businesses need powerful tools to process and transform it, and Apache Spark is one of the most powerful tools available today for big data operations. Since its release in 2009, its use has exponentially ramped up among companies that work with some of the largest datasets.

Though one of Spark’s key advantages is its ease of use, it takes an experienced data engineer to make the best use of all of its features. When you hire data engineers already well-versed in Apache Spark, your data projects will be completed more quickly, allowing your business to focus on implementing the solutions that the data implies.

This Apache Spark for Data Engineers test evaluates candidates’ abilities to apply their understanding of Apache Spark fundamentals, use Apache Spark for data transformation and processing, use Spark Core, and use Spark Streaming/Graph X.

This screening test will help you identify data engineers and other professionals who have strong experience with the Spark framework. Candidates who do well on this test will be able to efficiently problem-solve and execute on common Apache Spark scenarios they are likely to encounter on the job.

Review from G2

VP of engineering, mid-market (51-1000 FTE)

Any tool can have functions—bells and whistles. Not every tool comes armed with staff passionate about making the user experience positive.

The TestGorilla team only offers useful insights to user challenges, they engage in conversation.

For instance, I recently asked a question about a Python test I intended to implement. Instead of receiving “oh, that test would work perfectly for your solution,” or, “at this time we’re thinking about implementing a solution that may or may not…” I received a direct and straightforward answer with additional thoughts to help shape the solution.

I hope that TestGorilla realizes the value proposition in their work is not only the platform but the type of support that’s provided.

For a bit of context—I am a diversity recruiter trying to create a platform that removes bias from the hiring process and encourages the discovery of new and unseen talent.
