About the NGINX test

NGINX is a widely used open-source web server software known for its high performance, scalability, and reliability. Small businesses, large enterprises, high-traffic websites, e-commerce platforms, and content delivery networks all employ NGINX.

This NGINX pre-employment test evaluates candidates' intermediate-level proficiency in key NGINX areas, including installation and setup, configurations, NGINX and the web, and security control.

In this hiring test, candidates will be presented with scenario-based multiple-choice questions that simulate real-world situations encountered during the installation process. Candidates who excel in this test will demonstrate their ability to handle real-world NGINX scenarios, configure NGINX for optimal performance, and implement robust security measures.

What our customers are saying

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.
