Software Engineer Test

Description

A programming language is simply a tool that allows programmers to communicate with the computer. It doesn’t matter what language you use; the ideas you want to convey are the same everywhere. To write efficient code, one must first understand the basics of computer science and data structures.

This software engineer test will measure how well you can use algorithms to solve problems. It evaluates your understanding of the fundamentals of computer science without focusing on any one language. The test will assess how well you assess the complexity of a given algorithm, and it will evaluate your ability to determine the quality of different algorithmic solutions.

This test ensures that candidates have all the technical skills needed to implement your company’s vision into bits and bytes.

Skills Measured

  • Linear data structures
  • Non-linear data structures
  • Algorithm analysis
  • Computer science fundamentals

Roles

  • Software Engineers
