Based in Peru, Lima Innovation Lab (LILAB) is a leading software company dedicated to creating innovative digital solutions. From the start, their team of over 100 people has been committed to providing the best service in the digital technology field.

We spoke with Dayana Castro, recruiter at LILAB.

The Problem

Before incorporating TestGorilla into their process, LILAB followed a recruitment model that was not automated and required a lot of effort from the hiring team.

As a software company, there are technical requirements that candidates must meet to move on to the next phase in the selection process. The problem? Human resources managers lack technical knowledge, making screening difficult and leading to an overload of work for technical team leaders. They had to distinguish between qualified and unqualified candidates, reviewing each screening project one by one.

Additionally, as Dayana shares, LILAB faced challenges related to employee quality. There was a high dismissal rate within the first three months because new hires did not meet job requirements or fit the company culture.

The Solution

To address these challenges, LILAB decided to start using TestGorilla and incorporate the tool into their selection process.

Some of the features that have helped LILAB optimize their recruitment include

  • Technical skill tests: Kotlin (programming) working with Arrays and C# (programming) data structures, which allow the evaluation of the candidate's knowledge and experience in the technical field.

  • 16 Factors and DISC Personality Test: to assess the personality of candidates and understand how they perform in a work environment.

  • Custom questions: perfect for evaluating specific aspects related to the company or job.


TestGorilla has become an essential part of Lima Innovation Lab's recruitment process, helping their team establish a skills-based process to facilitate candidate screening.

The primary indicator of TestGorilla's impact on their operations is that now, over 90% of hired candidates are still part of the team after six months. Dayana and the HR team are very pleased with the increase in the quality of applicants who are part of the process after introducing skills evaluations.

Among the candidates who pass this initial filter, the vast majority make it to the final stage of the process.

TestGorilla has provided LILAB with the necessary resources to establish an automated selection process with better results. The quality of candidates has increased by using selection tests as the first filter in recruitment. Dayana and her team can now invest time focusing on beneficial tasks and be confident that the candidates will be the most qualified.
