This Embedded Systems test evaluates a candidate’s knowledge of hardware used in embedded systems and the firmware that runs on it. This screening test will help you hire an Embedded Systems Engineer who can design, develop, and maintain embedded systems.
Designing embedded systems
Understanding microcontrollers and peripherals
Debugging and testing
Embedded systems engineers, firmware engineers, microcontroller engineers, hardware engineers with software and firmware responsibilities, and test engineers with an embedded systems focus.
Hiring candidates with strong embedded systems skills brings significant business benefits. They develop efficient and reliable software for hardware devices, optimizing system performance and ensuring customer satisfaction. Skilled professionals troubleshoot complex issues, reducing development time and improving product quality.
This Embedded Systems test evaluates candidates' knowledge of embedded systems design, microcontrollers and peripherals, firmware writing, and testing/debugging. It assesses proficiency in hardware-software interaction, real-time systems, low-level programming, and issue resolution.
This screening test identifies candidates skilled at embedded systems development, firmware engineering, IoT device development, and related roles. Candidates who do well on this test deliver robust and innovative solutions to meet project requirements, ensure product reliability, and contribute to successful project implementation, accelerating time-to-market and improving overall business outcomes.
With an MSc in electronics and over six years’ experience as an embedded systems engineer, Aakash is an expert in prototype development. A skilled user of various microcontrollers from PIC to Raspberry Pi and the nRF52 and STM32 ecosystems, Aakash has been involved in the development of a biomedical device that analyzes sleep patterns, as well as a robotic hand operated by EMG signals.
In his downtime, Aakash loves to cycle, watch Forensic Files, and learn about how megastructures are built.
TestGorilla’s tests are created by subject-matter experts. We assess potential subject-matter experts based on their knowledge, ability, and reputation. Before being published, each test is peer-reviewed by another expert, then calibrated using hundreds of test takers with relevant experience in the subject.
Our feedback mechanisms and unique algorithms allow our subject-matter experts to constantly improve their tests.
TestGorilla helps me to assess engineers rapidly. Creating assessments for different positions is easy due to pre-existing templates. You can create an assessment in less than 2 minutes. The interface is intuitive and it’s easy to visualize results per assessment.

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.
