Why we ask devs to do a coding test
Companies on OfferZen expect our developers to be able to pass a coding test. It's standard for graduate and junior candidates to complete a quick coding exercise before joining our marketplace.

This enables us to verify coding skills, and to help prepare these developers for the interview process. The companies who use OfferZen really value this, and it helps ensure they keep coming back and posting more jobs for our candidates.

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 8, Java 11, JavaScript, Kotlin, Lua, Objective-C, Pascal, PHP, Perl, Python, Ruby, Scala, and Visual Basic.

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