Back-end Tests for Hiring Engineers

The back-end quiz assesses a candidate’s conceptual understanding of general back-end development, independent of any particular tech stack. They’re asked questions about general back-end development (such as databases, API endpoints, and common architectural components).

The back-end assessment tests an engineer's conceptual understanding of general back-end development (such as databases, API endpoints, and common architectural components).

What topics does the Back-end test cover?

• Fundamentals of a modern back-end system, like the client-server model, network protocols, storage, access objects, microservices, endpoints, session managers, REST, and RESTless architectures
• Characteristics of systems such as: availability, latency, throughput, redundancy, and consistency
• Tradeoffs in system design
• Components needed to achieve system characteristics, such as load balancers, caches, proxies, rate limiters, leader election components, etc.

Assessments Engineers Actually Want to Take
Engineers don't want to take your outdated coding tests (you know they don't provide true signal anyway). Screen assessments have an 80-90% completion rate, so you don't have to worry about drop off.
Never miss the talented engineers in your pipeline again

Triplebyte tests are adaptive and use a nominal model for scoring. This allows for “partial credit” on multiple choice questions, to help identify unconventional thinkers vs. random guessers.

Screens that Scale with You
— and Your Candidates

Triplebyte Screen scales with you. Add as many team members as you want without the red tape of adding seats. Screen as many candidates as you want without having to ration assessments.

[After running an A/B test with both tools], I quickly found that the HackerRank signal was awful. People could score 20% or 80% and you still had no idea how good they actually are. But the Triplebyte Screen scores actually gave you insight.
If [the candidate] scores a 4 or 5 on Screen, we make an offer 50 to 60% of the time. "
