The IT sector is volatile and rapidly growing, with a constant need for skilled employees. Although the average level of education in society is increasing, education is not the only thing that makes a candidate fit for a certain job. Gothenburgbased recruitment company Software Skills offers recruitment services for the IT sector. Their recruitment process includes several interviews, but also practical tests. The purpose of this project is to design a web-based platform with skill- and personality tests to be used by Software Skills in their recruitment process. The product consists of two skill tests and one personality test. The skills tested are multitasking and short-term memory. The personality test is based on selfevaluation, where the user is supposed to grade three statements in the order they apply him/her. An algorithm that takes consistency into account is then used to calculate a result. To test multitasking capacity, the user performs two simple tasks simultaneously, and is scored with an algorithm that gives an edge to a user that succeeds in giving equal attention to both tasks. The memory test presents the user with a grid, and the user is tasked with imitating a pattern of gradually increasing length. There is also a distraction in the form of a different color breaking the pattern. The product as a whole is aptly named Skill Test, and is created with a collection of very popular web-development frameworks called MEAN - an acronym for Mongo, Express, Angular and Node. All source code is written in Javascript, HTML and CSS. The group has worked according to a slightly modified version of an agile development process called Scrum. This means that the product did not have a complete specification at the beginning in the project. Instead, the group has had regular contact with the customer, who has been able to continuously supply feedback. The Scrum process ensures that the product complies with the vision of the customer. In Scrum, tasks are distributed to the development team from a so-called product backlog. The team then works iteratively in what is commonly referred to as sprints.
