Data structures & data types
Working with and implementing data structures is crucial to the success of a developer. An effective data structure will enable you to effectively manage, organize, and represent your data. Data structures are often implemented as objects, so the ability to effectively work with objects and understand object-oriented programming is an important skill to have.
This coding test presents a real-life scenario to your candidates. They have 30 minutes to implement a data structure 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 tests evaluating the candidate's analytical and algorithmic thinking.
Freelance programmer Kamil can’t be put in a box: from software development to systems administration to translations, he’s happiest doing a little bit of everything—particularly if it involves cybersecurity or data science.
A perfectionist at heart, Kamil credits his professional achievements to a belief that life-long learning and discovery are the key to reaching new levels.
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.
