Linux administrators and users, system administrators, system engineers, security engineers, DevOps engineers, web application developers, and anyone else who uses Bash.
Bash is a command processor where users type commands and run scripts to cause actions in computers and server networks. Bash is widely used in Linux distributions and is also used in Mac and Windows systems. A skilled Bash practitioner can transform a business’s use of automation and directory manipulation to greatly improve productivity.
This Bash test provides a comprehensive overview of intermediate Bash skills. The major skill areas covered are basic commands; users, groups, and permissions; pipes, redirection, and regex; and Bash environment and scripts. Knowledge of these topics is essential for a Bash user who can start making a positive impact on your business from day one.
Although Bash is frequently used to manage standard Linux servers, it is also required to implement cutting-edge technology improvements like automation, version control, and Docker. Bash aids developers and administrators of all kinds, including database administrators, data scientists, and most other IT professionals.
Learning and mastering Bash is a long journey. But hiring with this Bash test will help you to identify candidates with solid foundational knowledge and skills for intermediate Bash operations and the ability to apply existing Bash tools to solve problems encountered by businesses around the world.

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.
