How our .NET Core online tests work

All of our .Net core online tests are powered by the RealLifeTesting™ methodology. This technology works by tasking candidates with actual work that they are likely to face every day. The actual tests are multidimensional consisting of a series of questions and programming challenges to solve. This unique form of testing provides a clear insight into the candidate’s coding skills, problem-solving ability, and time-management.

What to look for in a .NET Core developer

.NET is a software development framework from Microsoft that provides a controlled programming environment where software can be developed, installed, and executed mainly on Windows-based operating systems. .NET Core was developed in response to the surge in popularity of Java and as such explains why many of the concepts of the two are similar.

 .NET Core is generally used in low-risk projects that are starting from nothing i.e. startups, etc. Some .NET components can be used in .NET core apps (but not the other way around). The rapid growth of web development has meant that skills in the ASP.NET MVC are becoming increasingly valuable for a .NET core developer to possess. Additionally, knowledge of databases such as SQL is critical but it’s especially nice to see if the candidate has knowledge of a particular database such as Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle. Finally, a Microsoft Certifed Solutions Developer (MCSD) certification is great to see for those candidates you’re looking to hire.

Plutora

Plutora is a market leader in value stream management, with release, test environment, and analytics solutions for enterprise IT. 

Before using DevSkiller, Plutora was reliant on phone interviews to pre-select their candidate and the ones who passed were invited to a tech interview followed by a behavioral interview. The lack of automation in this process meant it required a lot of manual work on their side. Also, the effectiveness of phone screening was insufficient as under-skilled candidates were still qualifying for the tech interview. 

The aim of implementing DevSkiller was to automate technical screening while reducing the workload, limit the number of interviews, and identify candidates with the right skills before the interview stage. Since moving to DevSkiller, Pluthora saves approximately 8 hours of their internal developer time per each candidate. That’s because they don’t have to pull developers in to interview poor candidates.

“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.” 

Richard Williams – VP of Engineering at Plutora
