About the Jenkins test

Continuous integration and continuous delivery become a de facto standard in software development. Therefore, hiring a skilled DevOps professional who can build a reliable CI/CD infrastructure will bring irreplaceable advantages to your business.

This test evaluates candidates’ abilities to plan and deploy Jenkins, correctly configure it, ensure its high availability and disaster recovery, monitor its health, and troubleshoot the issues. It will also check the candidate’s ability to create pipelines to automate the software-building process and integrate different tools into it.

Additionally, this test will evaluate the candidate’s ability to use security best practices to build a well-protected and invulnerable instance of Jenkins.

This screening test will help you identify DevOps engineers who can build the foundation for the efficient operation of your developers. Candidates who do well on this test can be considered experienced IT engineers who can help your business benefit from the advantages of Jenkins.

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.
