About the project

How we hire:

At Pentalog, excellence is what you'll do. We're guided by a mission to positively impact the software development world. 

We have partnered with startup that owns a human-assisted AI based platform, created to help build, run and scale tailor-made software. The client is flipping software development on its head and kicking out the notion that you need to be an expert or do boot camps to learn how to make your app. They are providing a low-code app development platform, that allows to build software 6x faster and 70% cheaper.

This UK-based client needs assistance in growing their platform, and are looking for a senior, self-driven Node.js Developer, who will be able to help create a series of technical assessments, in partnership with a content writer. These assessments, which can be used to evaluate the capabilities of developers joining the network, include multiple choice questions and coding assignments. 

In this role, you will need to be able to differentiate between varying levels of technical ability (e.g. beginner, intermediate, and advanced) and know how to clearly define acceptance criteria to be used by other teams for evaluating the results of a technical assignment.
