What is a Shopify test?

A Shopify test is designed to assess someone's skills in creating and managing an online shop via Shopify. The core product of Shopify provides templates for stores, but the platform is fully customisable, which means that if you have the know-how, you can adapt the functionality and aesthetics to suit all of your needs.

The skills tested include understanding code in Liquid (the platform’s coding language), e-commerce management, and Shopify APIs. All of this is necessary not only to build your shop, but also to deliver a user-friendly experience and grow your business by integrating ads and search engine optimisation.

About the Shopify Test

Over $100 billion of sales are reported on Shopify annually and over a million full-time jobs are supported by businesses on the platform. Shopify is continually growing at a rapid pace, making it an influential platform that can make a huge impact on a business.

The Shopify test allows you to find candidates with the right skills and experience to maximise the benefits of Shopify for your business.

Why should you use a Shopify test for recruiting?

E-commerce is the biggest source of business for many companies and its power is still growing. Using a platform like Shopify allows people to start their own businesses, since it provides a fully integrated site for a ready-made shop, but also allows customisation for those who have a specific vision in mind.

The Shopify test assesses the skill level of candidates when it comes to using Shopify’s APIs and development tools to meet requirements and fix bugs in the code. There is a Shopify app store, which has thousands of apps that can customise a shop without having to code it yourself; however, hiring your own developer means that you are not limited by what is already on offer.

There are a number of skills that a Shopify developer may have and finding the one that is right for you can be difficult. This is where the Shopify test comes in, allowing you to test the specific requirements of the role and find the person with the right skill set. A highly skilled developer may also have experience in:

  • UX/UI
  • SEO
  • Marketing strategy
  • Copywriting
  • Graphic design

By using the Shopify test, you can identify which candidates not only have the basic knowledge about the platform, but can also implement it successfully and get positive results. A Shopify developer needs to be able to customise, manage the shop, and adapt as needed. Having demonstrable proof of these skills through the test means that your hiring process will be quicker, easier, and get better results.

How our test assesses Shopify skills

In Neuroworx's Shopify test, candidates will need to answer a range of questions targeting an intermediate level of proficiency, from understanding code in Liquid to demonstrating knowledge across various Shopify features and functions.

The test is designed to indicate how well a candidate understands Shopify based on a final test score, which can then be compared to the scores of other applicants.

The multiple-choice questions consist of one correct answer and two to four distractors. The distractors are generic mistakes or misconceptions, which makes the test challenging and helps measure a candidate's proficiency more accurately.

During the development process, the test was rigorously analysed to maximise reliability and validity in line with industry best practices. It was created and tested by experienced developers and psychometric experts, and field-tested with a representative sample of job applicants who have varying Shopify experience just like you might find in a talent pool.

Each test is reviewed by a panel of individuals representing diverse backgrounds to check for any sensitivity, fairness, face validity and accessibility issues. This ensures each candidate has a fair chance of demonstrating their true level of Shopify proficiency.

Our software tests are monitored to ensure they are up-to-date and optimised for performance.
