Why we ask devs to do a coding test
Companies on OfferZen expect our developers to be able to pass a coding test, so we have designed our own test which we ask developers to complete when they apply. 

We give developers 7 days to complete the test. We look at the test result and the dev's profile to determine whether or not they are a fit for what companies are looking for. Once devs complete the test, our team reviews the results within 48 hours.

There are 3 tasks in the test and devs have 90 minutes to complete them. They can be solved in any order. Unfortunately the test cannot be taken a second time so it's important for someone taking the test to ensure they won't be interrupted. 

The solutions can each be written in the dev's preferred language. The supported languages are: C, C#, C++, Go, Java, JavaScript, Lua, Objective-C, PHP, Pascal, Perl, Python, Ruby, Scala, Swift 2, Swift 3 or VB.NET.

Cheating is easy for us to discover. We will notice if a dev copies ready-made solutions.

We use Codility.com for as our testing service, you can find out more info about Codility here:

What happens if I don't pass the coding test?
If you don't pass the coding test you can reapply to do the test in 6-12 months.
