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.
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.
