This Database Development test evaluates candidates’ knowledge of relational database development. This test will help you identify developers capable of designing and implementing relational databases that meet your business needs.
Data models and relational algebra
Optimal database design and normalization
Database developers, database managers, backend engineers, data engineers, and any other roles requiring intermediate knowledge of database development.
In the current age of information and technology, every business deals with complex software and web applications, each of which requires data storage via a database management system. It is crucial to have professionals on staff with fundamental knowledge of database development and its best practices to be able to efficiently store and access the information you require.
Hiring a developer with strong database development skills means that you will reduce the amount of time you spend managing data, improve the quality and consistency of the information you use to guide your business decisions, and turn disparate information into a valuable resource for your company.
The correct development and implementation of a database management system (DBMS) provides an opportunity to develop complex applications that work efficiently and can deal with the load from millions of user requests. It also provides the ability to easily store and access any piece of information.
The questions in this test are related to all core concepts of relational DBMS and database development, covering data models, optimal database design and normalization, transactions, and indexing.
Candidates who perform well on this test have a strong fundamental knowledge of core DBMS and relational database development approaches and can make the best use of each one when working with different types of information. In addition, such candidates have all the necessary skills to help your company achieve its goals in the storage, management, and accessing of data.

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.
