Recruitment Test and Design Problem statements

SDSLabs conducts a recruitment test for freshers, having various sections including logical reasoning, programming, software development, and an ad-hoc section to show off your geeky side.

We invite the top scorers from individual sections and the top scorers overall for an interview during the interview process. Needless to say, the evaluation will be done based on your performance in individual sections.

Design based problem statements are released a week before the recruitment test takes place to test your skills in various fields of design like UI/UX and graphic design. Design submissions will be considered for getting recruited as a Designer at SDSLabs.

Apart from this, we are always open to new members who may have missed their shot in our recruitment drive. Obsessed with coding? Building something new every week? We insist that you join us! Send us your resume, at: [email protected].

Hoping that this has addressed all your doubts, we look forward to your enthusiastic participation in our recruitment drive.

Best of luck!
