NEW ORLEANS & SAN ANTONIO--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Technical assessment platform provider, TrueAbility™, today announced the launch of AbilityScreen for Linux Professionals™, a new way to evaluate the skill level of those who work within a Linux environment. For the first time ever, using AbilityScreen®, individuals have a way to demonstrate their expertise and prove what they know, enabling companies to discover and hire proven Linux Professionals.
“We’re pleased to see innovation from companies like TrueAbility who are helping companies discover and identify the Linux talent needed to meet their cloud-based staffing needs”
“AbilityScreen enables employers to measure a technical candidate's ability within the technologies, platforms, vendor certifications and industry standards that their company uses today,” stated Luke Owen, Co-founder and CEO. “With AbilityScreen for Linux Professionals™ , we are helping to advance a new paradigm in recruiting Cloud Professionals, bringing efficiency to the recruiting process and providing a new approach to skills-based evaluation.”
Job Simulator for the Linux Professional
An AbilityScreen puts a technical candidate in a real world environment, as they would be on the job, to demonstrate what their current level of expertise is—from anywhere in the world. AbilityScreen can evaluate the candidate’s ability to troubleshoot, leverage resources, and adapt to learning new things on the fly.
Company hiring managers or recruiters can create and send a candidate an AbilityScreen with just a few clicks. When taking an AbilityScreen, candidates will be able to prove their skills by solving real issues in a live server environment, instead of the traditional technical interview process which typically includes technical trivia, multiple choice questions, or white-boarding exercises.

TrueAbility is sponsoring CloudOpen 2013 and LinuxCon 2013, a consolidated event for open source professionals occurring September 16 – 18 in New Orleans. In parallel, the company is holding its own Linux Showdown, where Linux Professionals will be able to compete in a skills-based contest in a live server environment. The contest will be available to all Linux Professionals nationwide online at trueability.com and conference attendees are invited to visit Booth #30 to learn more.
“We’re pleased to see innovation from companies like TrueAbility who are helping companies discover and identify the Linux talent needed to meet their cloud-based staffing needs,” stated Mike Woster, COO at The Linux Foundation. “CloudOpen is the only event of its kind, bringing IT professionals together with potential employers and providing an education and collaboration space designed specifically to advance the open cloud.”
TrueAbility was founded to give technical professionals a platform to provide their skills and to make it easier for companies to discover, assess, and hire technical talent. The founders of TrueAbility collectively hired over 1,100 system administrators, network administrators, developers and other technical employees during their careers at a leading technology company. Recognizing a way to discover new and emerging talent led to the founding of the company in 2012. In July 2013, the company announced a Series A Round of $2.75 million lead by Austin Ventures.
