This coding test assesses a candidate’s ability to program a small algorithm in Kotlin, testing their basic programming skills. Using a short and straightforward coding task, this test helps you identify developers with the most essential Kotlin skills.
Entry-level Android developers, mobile developers, and any other roles requiring an entry-level knowledge of Kotlin.
This Kotlin coding test forms part of our Coding: Entry-Level Algorithms test.
All entry-level coding languages are now centralized in a single, language-agnostic test to ensure hiring developers is simpler than ever. Offer your candidates a choice of 19+ entry-level coding languages in one test.

Kotlin is a cross-platform coding language designed to interoperate fully with Java. Kotlin has been the preferred language for Android app developers since 2019. Good Kotlin developers are therefore highly sought after.
Strong foundational knowledge of programming in Kotlin is essential for junior programmers. Those candidates are able to hit the ground running and set themselves up for further professional growth.
This Kotlin test gives candidates 10 minutes of time to complete a straightforward coding task involving entry-level algorithms. The code is evaluated against a set of test cases, some of which are available to the candidate to determine if they are on the right track.
This is a great initial screening test that allows you to effectively screen candidates based on essential skills.
We recommend combining coding tests with at least one of our cognitive ability tests evaluating numerical or analytical skills.

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.
