It’s not unusual for programming jobs to have programming tests as part of the interview process. What is strange is for a job that was advertised as being back-end coding having its biggest, toughest question being to code an AJAX web page.
But really, if front-end stuff is that important to you as an employer, why not simply advertise the job that way? (Would an orchestra advertise for a tuba player if they really wanted a violinist?)
