What is Gradle?

To know what to look for in a Gradle developer, we first have to ask what is Gradle? It is an open-source build automation tool. It was designed to be flexible enough to build almost any type of software.

Gradle is a general-purpose build tool that makes few assumptions about what you’re trying to build. Gradle makes it easy to build common types of projects, like Java libraries — by adding plugins to create a layer of conventions and prebuilt functionality.

Gradle models its builds as Directed Acyclic Graphs (DAGs), essentially configuring a set of tasks together. Gradle can determine the order in which tasks in a task graph need to run, and then proceeds to execute them.

Gradle has several fixed build phases in it’s build lifecycle that your developer should know about. Initialization- creating the environment for the build. Configuration, involving configuring the task graph for the build, including determining which tasks need to run and in which order. Finally there is the execution phase, carrying out the tasks outlined in the configuration phase.

DevSkiller’s Gradle interview questions are the perfect way to screen candidates to make sure you recruit the very best Gradle developers for your business.

Want proof that our Gradle developer interview questions work?

If you think our screening tool sounds great, but you’re a little unsure, no problem. To begin with, some of our past clients felt the same way. Check out the following case study to learn how we helped them:

Ada Health

Ada is a global health company. Their core system connects medical knowledge with intelligent technology to help people manage their health and for medical professionals to deliver effective care.

The company requires skill in technologies such as Kotlin, Java, React Native and many more.  Previously Ada screened technological skills through an on-site task, followed by a team interview. The whole procedure was time consuming so they enlisted DevSkiller’s help.

Thanks to DevSkiller, Ada are now able to gain a broader understanding of each candidate’s experience from an initial technical task, which is carried out prior to interviews taking place. Evaluation for DevSkiller testing is automated, which saves countless hours of time for Ada’s recruitment employees.

Micha Gerwig – Engineering manager at Ada Health

“Not only do we save a considerable amount of time, but the tool also gives us the possibility to collaborate on reviewing the technical test. It also enables us to tailor the on-site experience towards the candidate, for example, which areas to focus on or how difficult the questions should be. Overall, the feedback has been quite positive. Candidates especially enjoy the Code Review task.”

Frequently asked questions

Do I need to be a programmer to use DevSkiller?

Don’t worry, you’re not expected to be a technical expert yourself to be able to use DevSkiller. Our own experts have created ready-to-use Gradle interview questions which are specially designed to be easy for technical recruiters to get the best out of. This means you can verify the coding skills of the candidates screened regardless of your own level of technological skill. You can prepare a test from scratch if required.

What do you do about plagiarism?

You need to be able to trust your results, so at DevSkiller we take plagiarism very seriously. We employ a number of anti-plagiarism tools designed to eliminate the chance of plagiarism. We can implement screen recording to check if the candidate is looking at a different screen when undertaking a test, as well as a range of social listening tools. We can also check the candidate’s entered code, question duration, and the way each question was answered. Our database stores answers previously provided, which are cross-checked against new answers coming in. If there is a match, it will flag that the candidate has tried to gain an unfair advantage.

How do candidates respond to DevSkiller Gradle interview questions?

We have received regular feedback from developer candidates that they love the layout of our Gradle developer interview questions. It is important to understand that more often than not, developer testing involves candidates having to recite coding patterns and algorithms. This can be frustrating because it doesn’t assess actual development skills. These kinds of tests can result in a lesser skilled developer progressing, simply because they happen to remember a coding pattern. We don’t leave anything to chance. Our Gradle interview questions challenge candidates with tasks exactly like the work they’ll be doing.

In turn, we hear that candidates relish having the chance to use normal coding tools and conventions like unit testing, and cloning to GIT from a personal IDE. We give developer candidates a chance to demonstrate what they can really do within a fair setting and for that they are thankful.

What is the test duration?

The duration of our Gradle interview questions is flexible. Duration can be set to your own preferences if required. We provide default settings which can be altered. It is also possible to set time limits for individual questions within a test.
