Adaface Kubernetes Online Test is the most accurate way to shortlist Kubernetes Developers

Reason #1

Tests for on-the-job skills

The Kubernetes Online Test helps recruiters and hiring managers to identify qualified candidates from a pool of resumes, and helps in taking objective hiring decisions. It reduces the administrative overhead of interviewing too many candidates and saves time by filtering out unqualified candidates.

The Adaface Kubernetes Online test screens candidates for the typical skills recruiters look for Kubernetes Developer roles:

  • Experience managing CI/CD pipelines
  • Deep expertise in containerization technologies
  • Deep knowledge of container orchestration tools like Kubernetes and logging/monitoring tools for these orchestration tools

The insights generated from this assessment can be used by recruiters and hiring managers to identify the best candidates for the Kubernetes Developer role. Anti-cheating features enable you to be comfortable with conducting assessments online. The Kubernetes DevOps Developer test is ideal for helping recruiters identify which candidates have the skills to do well on the job.

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 Kubernetes Online Test will be non-googleable.

🧐 Question


Ingress from namespace
Network Policies
You are tasked with deploying a Kubernetes network policy. Here are the specifications:

- Name of the policy: adaface-namespace
- Policy to be deployed in ‘chatbot’ namespace
- The policy should allow ALL traffic only from ‘tester’ namespace
- Policy should not allow communication between pods in the same namespace
- Traffic only from ‘tester’ namespace is allowed on all ports
Which of the following configuration files is BEST suited to create required dependencies and deploy the network policy?


Resource limits
How would you deploy a Kubernetes pod with the following specifications:

- Name of pod: adaface
- Resource limits: 1 CPU and 512Mi memory
- Image: haproxy
A: kubectl run adaface --image=haproxy --limits='cpu=1,memory=512Mi'
B: kubectl run adaface --image=haproxy --requests='cpu=1,memory=512Mi'

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Kubernetes 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 Kubernetes 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.

Reason #8

High completion rate

Adaface tests are conversational, low-stress, and take just 25-40 mins to complete.

This is why Adaface has the highest test-completion rate (86%), which is more than 2x better than traditional assessments.

About Kubernetes Developer Roles

Kubernetes is an open-source container-orchestration system for automating computer application deployment, scaling, and management.

Typical responsibilities of a Kubernetes Developer include:

  • Create and nurture highly available systems on Kubernetes
  • Develop container infrastructure
  • Develop the tooling to operate and maintain the platform
  • Improve continuous integration and delivery systems
  • Improve the monitoring and alert system
  • Troubleshoot issues and solve problems as required

How is the Kubernetes Online Test customized for senior roles?

The Kubernetes Online Test is customized for senior roles to assess a candidate's ability to:

  • Design and configure scalable and fault-tolerant Kubernetes clusters
  • Deploy and manage complex applications using Kubernetes resources
  • Secure Kubernetes clusters using RBAC, network policies, and pod security policies
  • Understand container security best practices
  • Implement application observability and monitoring
  • Design and implement backup and disaster recovery strategies

What roles can I use the Kubernetes Online Test for?

  • Kubernetes Developer

What topics are covered in the Kubernetes Online Test?

The hiring managers felt that through the technical questions that they asked during the panel interviews, they were able to tell which candidates had better scores, and differentiated with those who did not score as well. They are highly satisfied with the quality of candidates shortlisted with the Adaface screening.

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?

Yes, you can sign up for free and preview this test.
