Bash interview questions

At DevSkiller we are pushing the boundaries when it comes to developer recruitment. We prepare Bash interview questions to help recruiters looking to hire Bash developers in junior, middle, and senior-level positions. Through a series of challenges and interview questions, we make it easier than ever to find the right candidate for your business.

DevSkiller Bash interview questions are powered by RealLifeTesting™. This new methodology for testing developers works by creating a simulation of a developer’s real-world and then testing them on scenarios within that simulation to measure their responses. This offers recruiters insight into their candidates that was previously not achievable from standard developer testing. The result is that DevSkiller can offer a quicker more effective screening solution to your company’s developer recruitment.

How DevSkiller Bash interview questions work

Traditional developer testing involves algorithmic tests and challenges that don’t really reflect the day-to-day work that developers do. Thanks to RealLifeTesting™, DevSkiller is changing that. The RealLifeTesting™ methodology is the driving force behind our developer tests. It allows recruiters to gain a detailed view of each applicant; their skills and strengths, as well as their weaknesses. By implementing RealLifeTesting™ into our Bash interview questions we can now actively analyze each applicant’s knowledge of Bash in a controlled way. Assess the knowledge, time-management, and coding ability of each of your candidates with DevSkiller Bash interview questions.

What you should know about Bash

Bash, or ‘Bourne-Again Shell,’ is the command language interpreter for the GNU operating system. ‘Bourne’ being a technological nod to Stephen Bourne, the man behind the direct ancestor of the current Unix shell, ‘sh’.

Bash is the default shell provided by the GNU operating system. Bash currently runs on almost every version of Unix and a few other operating systems. There are independently-supported ports for Bash in MS-DOS, OS/2, and Windows.

Bash is largely compatible with sh shell. However, it also incorporates useful aspects from other shells including the Korn shell ksh and the C shell csh.

Bash is intended to be a conformant implementation of the IEEE POSIX Shell and Tools portion of the IEEE POSIX specification (IEEE Standard 1003.1). It offers functional improvements over sh for both interactive and programming use.

You might think our Bash interview questions sound like just what your company’s recruitment process needs. Nonetheless, it is understandable to want assurances. Check out what our past clients have had to say:

Ivana Nikolic – HR Manager at Impac Tech

"La mayor ventaja para los candidatos es que pueden proceder con las pruebas a su conveniencia. En caso de que un candidato ya esté trabajando y esté pensando en cambiar de carrera o en trasladarse a otra empresa, también es un ahorro de tiempo para ellos, ya que no tienen que tomarse tiempo libre para asistir a numerosas entrevistas en la búsqueda de un nuevo puesto".

Olga Berger - Reclutador principal y especialista en abastecimiento en CodeValue

"DevSkiller es fácil de usar y amigable".

Michael Gerwig - Gerente de ingeniería en Ada Health

"DevSkiller" nos ayudó a ahorrar un tiempo precioso en el sitio para los solicitantes que ya son probables de ser aptos. Ahorramos 3 horas por candidato - ese fue el tiempo que pasamos con los solicitantes en una tarea técnica antes."

Preguntas frecuentes

¿Qué es RealLifeTestingTM?

The RealLifeTestingTM methodology is the foundation of all DevSkiller Bash interview questions. It is based on the principle that the best way to monitor a developer’s skills is by asking them to do actual development work. RealLifeTestingTM produces a replicated version of reality, complete with challenges and tasks that each candidate is expected to succeed in. This kind of testing provides recruiters with a detailed and comprehensive understanding of each applicant’s skill level. Recruiters are able to break down the exact skills the candidate possesses and those in which they are lacking.

The best candidates need to demonstrate a clear knowledge of Bash, to utilize resources like Stack Overflow, and to possess the critical thinking needed to determine the most efficient solution to problems they encounter.

¿Cuál es la duración de la prueba?

The DevSkiller task wizard comes with default settings for all of our online tests, including duration. However, these settings can be easily amended to suit the needs of each company. It might be that you require your tests to be longer or shorter than the default setting. That’s down to the needs of your company.

How do candidates take Bash interview questions?

The main plus point of DevSkiller is that all of our tests are taken remotely and are accessed completely online. Despite the obvious convenience for candidates, being tested in their own homes, this is extremely convenient for recruiters as well. With no-in house testing required, recruiters are able to save countless hours on testing and evaluation. Assessment for our interview questions happens automatically, with test results then being presented in a simple, automated report.

For the tests themselves, candidates work on their own favorite IDE and then clone the project to GIT. If they prefer they can use DevSkiller’s state of the art in-browser IDE. The tests are complete once the candidate is finished or the designated time has expired.
