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).
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.
