How DevSkiller Ember tests work
The driving force behind DevSkiller Ember tests is RealLifeTesting™. This methodology allows recruiters to analyze their applicants’ knowledge of Ember, in a predetermined test environment. It is a means of gaining a full understanding of an applicant’s skillset, including their coding ability, problem-solving and time-management skills.
- Analyze coding ability and not just academic ability
- Save time and money with remote testing
- The RealLifeTesting™ methodology offers a greater user experience where candidates can use their own IDE, clone to GIT, run unit tests, and access Stack Overflow/Github/Google for research.
- Stringent anti-plagiarism tools to ensure test accuracy
- Observe tests in real-time
- Automated results that non-technical recruiters can understand
- Ember tests available for junior, middle and senior-level positions
Skills covered in our Ember tests

What to look for in an Ember developer
DevSkiller’s Ember tests can assist a great deal in working out which of your candidates possess the exact skills required to join your team. Our tests have been prepared by experts who know the inner workings of Ember and we know exactly the kinds of areas in which an Ember developer needs to be confident.
Like what you see but want more?
One of the many advantages of DevSkiller testing is that you can build your own custom Ember tests. With DevSkiller’s online task wizard, you can create fully customizable tests which allow you to change the language you test and define the scope. You can even monitor applicants in real-time during testing, if you would like to keep a closer eye on proceedings. Our customized tests offer recruiters greater control over their recruitment process.
Looking for proof that our Ember tests work?
It is understandable to want some evidence that our tests work before you jump in with both feet. Check out the following case study from one of our client:
StepStone is a group of leading job boards operating around the world. All their software is developed in-house by approximately 300 developers working on IT products for 130 countries across the globe. When it came to recruitment, StepStone had a major issue. The process was too slow.
Prior to implementing DevSkiller, StepStone’s technical screening involved a practical task sent by email, which meant recruiters would have to monitor their inboxes to assess the responses. This was then followed by pen and paper tasks during technical interviews. The procedure was time-consuming, but it also required a lot of effort from StepStone’s recruiters.
In October 2017 StepStone implemented DevSkiller testing into their recruitment process.
DevSkiller introduced a phone interview system which typically eliminates 10-20% of all the candidates. This is then followed by a technical screening test which eliminates a further 10-20% of candidates. The tests are automatically evaluated and assess candidates on
programming tasks, code review tasks, multichoice questions, code gaps, and database tasks.
Thanks to DevSkiller, StepStone now eliminates around 40% of candidates during the screening stage. Fewer interviews have to be conducted and there is much less work to be carried out by StepStone’s recruiters.
Victoria Cyczewska – Talent Acquisition Specialist at Stepstone Services
“Phone screening followed by a DevSkiller assessment allows us to decrease the number of onsite interviews by up to 40%. We increased company fit thanks to custom tests and, as a consequence, we now only spend onsite interview time on candidates who really show a lot of promise. Our Time to Hire is now shorter because our technical screening process is automated.“
Frequently asked questions
Do I need to be a programmer to use DevSkiller?
From start to finish, Devskiller is designed to be as simple and as automated as it can possibly be. Our ready-to-use tests are prepared by our IT experts in a way that allows non-technical users to verify the technical skills of the candidates screened. If you have someone more technically minded on-site, you can prepare your own tests from scratch. Otherwise, you don’t need to be an expert to be able to hire one.
What do you do about plagiarism?
At DevSkiller we take plagiarism seriously. We implement a number of anti-plagiarism tools to ensure you only receive verifiable results. We can use screen recording to check if the candidate is looking at a different screen when undertaking a test and we have a range of social listening tools at our disposal. We also cross check a candidate’s entered answers, against answers previously received in our system to see if there is a match and then categorically confirm that the candidate cheated.
What do candidates think of Ember tests?
Candidates love the structure of Devskiller Ember tests. It is refreshing for developers to have a chance to prove their actual software development skills, within a fair and just setting. So often developers are faced with having to remember algorithms and coding patterns that they haven’t touched in years. Our tests give them a platform to prove their mettle in a way that actually reflects the daily work they do. They get to use normal coding tools and conventions like unit testing, and cloning to GIT from a personal IDE.
What’s the test duration?
Test durations are not set in stone. They are flexible depending on your preferences. You can opt to use our default settings or set your own test duration. It is also possible to set time limits for individual questions within a test.
