What to look for in a Python developer
Python is one of the most popular programming languages in the world. It was first released in 1991 and became popular for being simple to learn, yet powerful in solving problems.
Python’s main uses are for data analysis and web development, but it is also becoming popular with regard to machine learning. It is a programming language getting more and more attention and according to developer survey results provided by Stack overflow in 2018, Python already ranks as the world’s seventh most popular programming language among professional software developers. In short, Python is one of the world’s most sought after technologies.
A good Python developer, therefore, needs to have a certain skill set in order to thrive within your business. Python developers are usually responsible for writing server-side web application logic, including the development of back-end components. They will design and implement quality applications, connect those applications with other third-party web services, and support front-end developers by integrating their work with the Python application. A good Python developer will need to write reusable, quality code, and come up with efficient data storage solutions.
Python developers should also have knowledge of web frameworks, object-relational mappers, multi-process architecture, and RESTful APIs. In addition, if they have skills in system administration, scripting, and other programming languages like Java or C++, then this is a bonus.
Like what you see but want more from our Python online tests?
DevSkiller Python online tests are fully customizable, meaning you can set the difficulty level, time-scale, and programming language being tested. Our Python tests can be adapted very easily to suit your company’s needs or you can simply choose DevSkiller’s own default settings and get started. Either way, DevSkiller Python tests are a simple and efficient solution to finding your next Python developer.
PyCharm IDE built-in to the browser
To improve candidate experience during our Python online tests, Devskiller has implemented a built-in PyCharm IDE directly into the browser. Our already warmed up, ready to use PyCharm IDE will reduce time during testing and increase the user experience for your candidates.
Candidates no longer have to clone the code, wait for the dependencies to install or indexes to build. They can literally start coding as soon as they open the test invitation. This unique feature is just one of the innovations setting DevSkiller TalentScore apart from the competition when it comes to developer screening.
Want proof that our Python online tests work?
It is perfectly understandable to be a little hesitant when choosing how to invest your company’s money, so here is what our clients have to say:
Lingonberry is a Talent Acquisition company whose screening process for recruitment was inefficient and time-consuming, with 50% of candidates they assessed being invited to the technical interview. Furthermore, they found it difficult to recruit for any roles which they themselves weren’t already competent in, making an assessment of other roles problematic. As a result, 15 candidates had to be interviewed in order to make just two hires. The whole recruitment process was slow and arduous, so they turned to DevSkiller.
Now, thanks to DevSkiller, Lingonberry is able to eliminate 50% of recruitment candidates with a technical assessment before the interview stage and eliminate the weaker candidates much earlier in the recruitment process. Lingonberry is now also able to accurately assess candidates for positions in which they have limited in-house expertise, while still ensuring they select the right applicant for the job.
Jonatan Rugarn – CEO, Founder, Recruiter at Lingonberry Talent Acquisition
“The DevSkiller test is the first thing I do with each applicant, after sorting out the irrelevant CVs. We only interview them if they pass the test,”
Richard Williams – VP of engineering at Plutora
“Thanks to automating the screening stage, we were able to reduce the interview rate by 50%. At the same time, the quality of candidates who make it to the interview stage is now much greater. DevSkiller adds an extra layer of quality to our technical hiring process”
Frequently asked questions
What is RealLifeTestingTM?
The RealLifeTestingTM methodology is the basis for every DevSkiller Python Online test. Rather than presenting developer candidate’s with menial coding challenges or algorithmic puzzles, RealLifeTestingTM instead, simulates the real-world scenarios that your applicants would be likely to encounter on a daily basis. By implementing this throughout all of our tests, DevSkiller is able to offer your business a comprehensive understanding of your applicant’s skill level, from the first stage of the recruitment process. The successful candidates are those who are able to demonstrate a clear understanding of Python and who possess the right amount of critical thinking to determine the quickest and most efficient solution to problems presented to them.
How do candidates undertake a Python test?
The great advantage of a DevSkiller Python online test is that it can be taken from anywhere in the world at any time. This means that each developer candidate can take the test whenever is convenient for them and the results will be automatically compiled ready for assessment. Recruiters simply have to send the candidate a link to the test to get started.
Test candidates then have the option of using DevSkiller’s state of the art in-browser IDE, or completing the project on their favorite IDE and then cloning the project to GIT. They are also expected to run unit tests to make sure their solutions work.
One major advantage of DevSkiller testing is that the results are then automatically compiled and analyzed, with a final report being sent to the recruiter. The whole process is simple and efficient and the results are presented in a clear and precise way, meaning you don’t have to be technically minded to understand them.
What do you do about plagiarism?
The chance of an applicant being able to cheat is eliminated via the implementation of a number of strict anti-plagiarism tools, which automatically analyze each test. Some of the tools employed include screen recording, which ensures that the candidate is not looking at a different screen when undertaking a test, and the use of a range of social listening tools. Automatic plagiarism detectors can also assess the code each candidate has inputted and the length of time taken to complete each question. Answers are then automatically cross-checked in the system against previous answers provided, to see if there is a match.
How long does it take to complete a Python online test?
The duration of each test is customizable and can be set depending on your preferences. DevSkiller Python online tests come with default settings already programmed, or you can change these and set your own. The tests can even be made available for only a limited time if required.
How long does it take to set up DevSkiller?
Another great aspect of Python online testing with DevSkiller, is that the tests are quick and easy to set up. You will be able to send your first Python test within a few minutes. DevSkiller stores a huge range of predefined tests at every level, meaning all you have to do is select the test you want to send out and then invite your developer candidates to take the test.
