Image Files


Bash File Globbing New Public

You ran a script that wrongly put its output image files in the 'work' directory inside the current directory.

Create a bash script that removes all the files in the 'work' directory that start with either 'out_0' or 'out_1' and end with '.png'.

For example, if the 'work' directory contains the following files: 

The 'work' directory contains out_0a.png, out.png and out_0.pdf

After running your script, both out.png and out_0.pdf should exist in the 'work' directory but out_0a.png should no longer exist.

See the example case for more details.

Pass/fail grouping

Our tests are designed to put candidates into either the pass group or the fail group so you can find the best candidates faster.

Full customization

We have pre-built tests and questions, but you can customize them however you like. Change the pass/fail scores, time requirements, and more.

Cheating protection

Use tests that solve real-world problems, with no answers that can be easily found online. Because we test performance and skills (not information), we allow the use of online resources, just like in real life. Copy/paste prevention and online proctoring via webcam prevent cheating.

Candidate reporting

Get an overview into the percentage of passes and fails. Then dive deeper into the results of your top candidates to select who goes onto the next phase of hiring.
