This online Go/Golang coding test evaluates your candidate’s intermediate-level programming skills in Golang. Candidates have 30 minutes to find a solution to a problem in Go or implement a data structure. This pre-employment skills test will help you hire mid-level Go developers.
Intermediate Go developers and other roles that require a strong grasp of Goland.
Since its publication in 2009 by Google, the Go programming language, offered referred to as Golang, too, has become popular among some of the biggest platforms and organizations around the world. Google, Apple, Facebook, the New York Times, and the BBC, among many others, choose this open-source language for their software apps due to the flexibility and ease of use it provides, especially with projects that require complex architecture.
Solving coding problems using Go and implementing data structures is crucial to the success of an intermediate-level developer. An effective data structure enables you to effectively manage, organize, and represent your data. These intermediate coding challenges in Go, evaluate candidates' ability to solve problems natively in Go and implement data structures to reach the best solutions.
This coding test presents a real-life scenario to your candidates. They have 30 minutes to implement a data structure or solve a problem that meets the given requirements. Candidates can run the code against a selected number of test cases to see if they are on track. After submission, the code is automatically scored based on another set of test cases that also covers exceptions or corner cases. You will be able to play back how the code came about in the coding editor.
We recommend combining this coding test with other programming tests such as Django and SQL, as well as cognitive ability tests.
Given that Rohan started to code from his school days, it’s no wonder that he went on to complete his Bachelor of Technology in Computer Science and Engineering. In his professional career, Rohan has been mostly coding on Go and Python and has been an active contributor to various open-source projects that allow him to push his programming skills and solutions even further. In his spare time, Rohan loves to write code to automate the little things in life.
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.
