Jenkins and Ansible online test is designed and validated by industry experts to help tech recruiters and hiring managers to assess the Jenkins and Ansible skills of the candidate. Top tech companies are using this test to reduce candidate screening time by 85%.

The test ensures candidates have following traits:

  • DevOps/SRE experience in setting up/managing/modifying CI/CD/pipelines
  • End to end experience with Automation
  • Experience in Python or any scripting language and capability to automate/ Improve automation
  • Familiarity with setting up, maintaining and troubleshooting Ansible and Jenkins tools
Reason #2

No trick questions

no trick questions

Traditional assessment tools use trick questions and puzzles for the screening, which creates a lot of frustration among candidates about having to go through irrelevant screening assessments.

The main reason we started Adaface is that traditional pre-employment assessment platforms are not a fair way for companies to evaluate candidates. At Adaface, our mission is to help companies find great candidates by assessing on-the-job skills required for a role.

Reason #3

Non-googleable questions

We have a very high focus on the quality of questions that test for on-the-job skills. Every question is non-googleable and we have a very high bar for the level of subject matter experts we onboard to create these questions. We have crawlers to check if any of the questions are leaked online. If/ when a question gets leaked, we get an alert. We change the question for you & let you know.

These are just a small sample from our library of 10,000+ questions. The actual questions on this Ansible & Jenkins Online Test will be non-googleable.

🧐 Question


Improve build time
Sameera set up a build environment where Jenkins will check a Git repo for changes every hour and apply that build to 40 servers. Jenkins also runs some scripted performance based tests. On the basis of the results, it marks the build as complete or rolls back the build and marks it as failed and updates the team. Recently Sameera observes that the build itself is taking over an hour to finish, which sometimes affects the push of updates. What changes could Sameera make to improve the time it takes to complete and test a build?
A: Remove performance testing from the build, and schedule it as a separate job 30 minutes after the build runs and trigger a rollback if the testing fails.

B: Create additional Jenkins Masters and deploy to each one. Schedule the job staggered by 30 minutes on each, so that additional master servers won't be busy if the first job takes longer to run.

C: Add one or more slaves allowing us to deploy code to multiple end points at a time. Break up the job into multiple jobs so that each can be triggered upon successful completion of the previous job. This will eliminate scheduling issues on beginning a new build when subsequent steps take longer than intended. 

D: None of these would work in the current scenario.


Executing a particular command
Bernie wants to use matrix-based security to execute a particular command in a Jenkins pipeline, but they do not have any relevant groups and they are not allowed to create a specific user to run the task. Which of the following can they do?
A: Create a group or reassign the user

B: Change workflow to require an existing user to the task, and grant permissions to that group.

C: Create a group, add an existing user to run the task or reassign the user

D: Set permissions to allow anonymous user to run the command.

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Ansible & Jenkins Online Test in your hiring process is that it is an elimination tool, not a selection tool. In other words: you want to use the test to eliminate the candidates who do poorly on the test, not to select the candidates who come out at the top. While they are super valuable, pre-employment tests do not paint the entire picture of a candidate’s abilities, knowledge, and motivations. Multiple easy questions are more predictive of a candidate's ability than fewer hard questions. Harder questions are often "trick" based questions, which do not provide any meaningful signal about the candidate's skillset.

Reason #6

1 click candidate invites

Email invites: You can send candidates an email invite to the Ansible & Jenkins Online Test from your dashboard by entering their email address.

Public link: You can create a public link for each test that you can share with candidates.

API or integrations: You can invite candidates directly from your ATS by using our pre-built integrations with popular ATS systems or building a custom integration with your in-house ATS.

Typical responsibilities of a DevOps Engineer (Jenkins/ Ansible) include:

  • Responsible for designing secure, highly available DevOps pipeline
  • Build and test code continuously with scripting and programming languages
  • Measure performance and environment of application with system & application log tools
  • Implement automation, effective monitoring, and infrastructure-as-code
  • Have on call responsibilities in rotation with the engineering team
  • Automating tasks using scripting languages (Python, Ruby etc)

The test is designed to filter out candidates for roles like

  • DevOps Engineer
  • System Administrator
  • Ansible Developer
  • Ansible Expert

Ansible and Jenkins Online Test FAQs

Can I combine multiple skills into one custom assessment?

Yes, absolutely. Custom assessments are set up based on your job description, and will include questions on all must-have skills you specify.

Do you have any anti-cheating or proctoring features in place?

We have the following anti-cheating features in place:

  • Non-googleable questions
  • IP proctoring
  • Web proctoring
  • Webcam proctoring
  • Plagiarism detection
  • Secure browser

Read more about the proctoring features.

How do I interpret test scores?

The primary thing to keep in mind is that an assessment is an elimination tool, not a selection tool. A skills assessment is optimized to help you eliminate candidates who are not technically qualified for the role, it is not optimized to help you find the best candidate for the role. So the ideal way to use an assessment is to decide a threshold score (typically 55%, we help you benchmark) and invite all candidates who score above the threshold for the next rounds of interview.

What experience level can I use this test for?

Each Adaface assessment is customized to your job description/ ideal candidate persona (our subject matter experts will pick the right questions for your assessment from our library of 10000+ questions). This assessment can be customized for any experience level.

Does every candidate get the same questions?

Yes, it makes it much easier for you to compare candidates. Options for MCQ questions and the order of questions are randomized. We have anti-cheating/ proctoring features in place. In our enterprise plan, we also have the option to create multiple versions of the same assessment with questions of similar difficulty levels.

I'm a candidate. Can I try a practice test?

No. Unfortunately, we do not support practice tests at the moment. However, you can use our sample questions for practice.

What is the cost of using this test?

You can check out our pricing plans.

Can I get a free trial?
