Blocks
Solve
You are developing a Shopify theme and using Liquid, Shopify's templating language. In your template, you have written the following pseudo code:
 image
The code should display the collection and product headings for each product and then print the heading of the last product in each collection. However, after running this code, the 'Last product' print statement for each collection shows 'Product: ' but no product title. What is causing this issue?
A: You can't reassign the 'global_var' inside the 'for' loop.
B: The 'capture' block doesn't create a new scope for its content.
C: The 'product_heading' variable is not accessible outside its 'capture' block.
D: The 'collection_heading' variable should be assigned globally.
E: You can't use the 'assign' statement inside a 'for' loop.

Medium

Checkout API
Solve
You are a developer for Kylie Cosmetics Shopify App. To create a new checkout, you can send a POST request to the admin/checkouts.json endpoint. If you sent the following JSON string to the endpoint, what would be returned? (Assume that variant_id is correct)
 image
A: An error, as the checkout object is missing parameters necessary to process the customer’s payment
B: The checkout object, including a web_url parameter which can be used to redirect a customer to this URL for Shopify's web checkout experience

The Deceptive Discount
Liquid
Operations
Debugging
Solve
You are creating a Shopify theme and implementing a feature to provide a discount to customers. Your store has a promotional offer where if the total cost of the items in a cart is above $500, a discount of 10% is applied, else, a 5% discount is applied.

You've written the following pseudo code in Liquid Templating language:
 image
You have the following logs with output from different statements:

1. cart.total_price for a $400 purchase -> 40000
2. 'times' filter with 40000 and 0.10 -> 4000
3. cart.total_price for a $500 purchase -> 50000
4. 'times' filter with 50000 and 0.10 -> 5000
5. cart.total_price for a $600 purchase -> 60000
6. 'times' filter with 60000 and 0.10 -> 6000

After reviewing these logs, you realize that the discount is not being calculated correctly. What could be the reason?
A: The 'times' filter is not working properly.
B: The 'money' filter is not converting the discount to the right format.
C: The 'assign' statement is not assigning the right values.
D: The 'total_price' of the cart is not being fetched correctly.
E: The comparison operator in the 'if' condition is incorrect.

Registration Queue
Logic
Queues
Solve
We want to register students for the next semester. All students have a receipt which shows the amount pending for the previous semester. A positive amount (or zero) represents that the student has paid extra fees, and a negative amount represents that they have pending fees to be paid. The students are in a queue for the registration. We want to arrange the students in a way such that the students who have a positive amount on the receipt get registered first as compared to the students who have a negative amount. We are given a queue in the form of an array containing the pending amount.
For example, if the initial queue is [20, 70, -40, 30, -10], then the final queue will be [20, 70, 30, -40, -10]. Note that the sequence of students should not be changed while arranging them unless required to meet the condition.
⚠️⚠️⚠️ Note:
- The first line of the input is the length of the array. The second line contains all the elements of the array.
- The input is already parsed into an array of "strings" and passed to a function. You will need to convert string to integer/number type inside the function.
- You need to "print" the final result (not return it) to pass the test cases.

For the example discussed above, the input will be:
5
20 70 -40 30 -10

Your code needs to print the following to the standard output:
20 70 30 -40 -10

Find the customer with the most spend 2
JOIN
GROUP BY
ORDER BY
Solve
Given details of customers, products, and sales, write a SQL query to find the customer with the highest spend. The customer with the highest spend is the one who has spent the most money on purchases. The query should return the full name of the customer and the total amount spent by the customer rounded off to the nearest integer.
full_name is the concatenation of first_name and last_name separated by a space. Eg:
first_name = 'Alice', last _name = 'Brown' => full_name = 'Alice Brown'
You can assume that there will always be non-empty first_name and non-empty last_name entries for all customers in the table.

Visitors Count
Strings
Logic
Solve
A manager hires a staff member to keep a record of the number of men, women, and children visiting the museum daily. The staff will note W if any women visit, M for men, and C for children. You need to write code that takes the string that represents the visits and prints the count of men, woman and children. The sequencing should be in decreasing order. 
Example:

Input:
WWMMWWCCC

Expected Output: 
4W3C2M

Explanation: 
‘W’ has the highest count, then ‘C’, then ‘M’. 
⚠️⚠️⚠️ Note:
- The input is already parsed and passed to a function.
- You need to "print" the final result (not return it) to pass the test cases.
- If the input is- “MMW”, then the expected output is "2M1W" since there is no ‘C’.
- If any of them have the same count, the output should follow this order - M, W, C.

Have questions about the Shopify Developer Hiring Test?

How does pricing work?

You can check out our pricing plans.

Can I customize the test?

Yes, absolutely. Custom assessments are set up within 48 hours based on your job description, and will include questions on all must-have skills you specify. Here's a quick guide on how you can request a custom test. You can also customize a test by uploading your own questions.

Can I combine multiple skills into one test?

Yes, absolutely. Custom assessments are set up based on your job description, and will include questions on all must-have skills you specify. Here's a quick guide on how you can request a custom test.

What roles can I use the Shopify Developer Assessment Test for?

Here are few roles for which we recommend this test:

  • Shopify Developer
  • E-commerce Developer
  • Front-end Developer
  • Web Developer
  • Full-stack Developer
Can I see a sample test, or do you have a free trial?

Yes!

The free trial includes one sample technical test (Java/ JavaScript) and one sample aptitude test that you will find in your dashboard when you sign up. You can use it to review the quality of questions and the candidate experience of giving a test on Adaface.

You can preview any of the 500+ tests and see the sample questions to decide if it would be a good fit for your requirements.

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.

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.
