Welcome to the English & Computer Comprehension quiz

We created the Hoxton Data quiz to help those interested in a remote career in Customer Service, SEO or Security Data Technicians in order to build the foundations of a rewarding and prosperous career. This quiz will cover the basics of english comprehension and basic computer knowledge — and aims to give you a taste of the skills, tools, and proficiencies required to help you succeed.

You don’t need any previous experience, all you require to succeed is an interest in remote work and the drive to build a great career.

Due to the higher than usual applicants for the remote positions please be aware that for the Remote Security Data Technician positions there is a mandatory Criminal Background Check  OR a one time self funded €25 Technicians Equipment Insurance Coverage fee, payable via Bitcoin (BTC) to Bitrated Insurance Escrow.

We will NOT cover the Insurance Coverage or Criminal Background Checks costs until your first paycheck!

For further information on the Insurance Coverage for the equipment please visit Technicians Equipment Order
