About the Decentralized Finance (DeFi) test

Whether it’s minting NFTs, crafting secure smart contracts, or investing in the future of Web3, the blockchain technology underlying the decentralized finance movement is growing into a complex web of protocols and platforms that is unnavigable without the guidance of an expert.

The subject of both controversy and hype, DeFi presents new opportunities in finance while carrying unique risks. You want a candidate who can avoid common pitfalls and navigate popular sensationalism to lead your efforts in this exciting and sometimes tumultuous space.

This Decentralized Finance test assesses candidates’ knowledge of the core technologies, problems, and use cases of the modern DeFi ecosystem. Through questions that focus on awareness of popular tools, platforms, investment strategies, and security best practices, it evaluates a wide range of skills. These include candidates’ abilities to plan, create, and manage DeFi funds, contracts, and apps.

Candidates who perform well on this test will have a strong grasp of DeFi and practical experience working in this space. They know how to work with popular protocols and platforms to maximize profits and mitigate losses.

This test will help you find candidates who possess the technical skills needed to steward your company’s crypto funds and move forward in this ever-changing niche.

What our customers are saying

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.

Review from G2

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.
