This PowerShell skills test evaluates a candidate’s technical knowledge of the scripting language. This online screening test will help you hire employees who can understand and write PowerShell scripts, from beginning to end.
Systems administrators, Azure administrators, Windows administrators, and other roles that require a deep knowledge of PowerShell.
It’s easy for a company to get caught in a cycle of manual IT and tech tasks. But, with an expert in PowerShell on staff, you can quickly automate literally thousands of tasks, freeing up employees so they can spend their time on projects that use their skills to the fullest. Serving as both a scripting language and a command line shell, PowerShell provides flexibility; simple tasks can be completed by entering a single line in the command line.
This PowerShell test evaluates candidates’ abilities to use commands, pipelines, and variables as they script in PowerShell. This screening test also evaluates candidates’ skills in PowerShell remoting.
This screening test will help you identify experts in PowerShell who can immediately begin automating tasks for your company. Based on common real-life situations and scenarios, this PowerShell test will help you find candidates who can effectively use PowerShell regardless of whether they are Systems, Windows, or Azure-based. Candidates who do well on this test will be able to apply their knowledge on the job.

He has a passion for sharing the knowledge he has gleaned, regularly conducting workshops and hands-on sessions. In his free time, he enjoys reading books, gardening and traveling, but he feels best when spends time with family.

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.
