About the Coding: Data Structures - Arrays test

For businesses seeking proficient coders, a solid grasp of arrays data structures is fundamental. Arrays are vital in diverse coding scenarios, from storing lists of items like user information to implementing algorithms for searching and sorting. For instance, arrays might be used in a web development project to store user preferences, streamlining personalization features. In an algorithmic context, arrays are pivotal for tasks like sorting and searching data.

This intermediate-level, language-agnostic coding challenge focuses on array manipulation, enabling candidates to choose their preferred coding language. Employers can configure supported languages as needed.

This test evaluates candidates' ability to manipulate arrays, a skill crucial for optimizing code efficiency. Candidates showcase their skills by solving moderately complex problems, creating flexibility in language selection. By evaluating against set cases, this challenge encourages candidates to create additional test cases, offering a comprehensive assessment of their intermediate programming abilities.

This screening test will help you identify candidates poised for professional growth in coding. Successful candidates navigate array manipulation challenges and exhibit the versatility to contribute meaningfully to your coding projects. This language-agnostic coding test ensures candidates can effectively apply array data structures, demonstrating adaptability across programming languages.

Gain insights into candidates’ problem-solving capabilities, and identify individuals with strong intermediate coding skills. This screening test is a valuable asset in building a proficient coding team tailored to your organizational needs and objectives.

Review from G2

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.
