Full-Stack IDE Assessments

Hiring a Full-Stack Developer

Full-stack developers are critical in the tech industry, with an increasing demand in various sectors. While a front-end developer focuses on building and maintaining the user interface, a full-stack developer extends this responsibility to the entire application stack. If your product requires not just visual appeal and usability but also robust server-side functionalities, a full-stack developer is essential to your business.

What are the requirements and how do you test them?

In addition to proficiency in front-end languages like HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript, a full-stack developer should be well-versed in back-end technologies. This includes server-side languages (such as Node.js, Python, Ruby, PHP), database management systems (like MySQL, MongoDB, PostgreSQL), and server, network, and hosting environments. Experience with full-stack frameworks (like MEAN, MERN, Django, Rails) is highly desirable.

Like front-end challenges, full-stack code assessments involve building applications, but with an added focus on back-end functionalities. Tasks may range from developing a RESTful API, integrating a database to store and retrieve data, to implementing server-side logic. Filtered's full-stack challenges include diverse frameworks and technologies, ensuring a comprehensive assessment of a candidate's skills.

How to score a full-stack code challenge

Scoring a full-stack code challenge is more complex than a front-end challenge due to the involvement of both client and server-side aspects. Our scoring system evaluates not just the visual and functional aspects of the solution but also the efficiency, security, and scalability of the server-side code. After automated scoring, we recommend a thorough review of the candidate's code, considering best practices in both front-end and back-end development to make an informed decision about the candidate.
