Outsource PHP developers to the Philippines


What is a PHP developer?

PHP is a general purpose scripting language well suited for web development and web design. A PHP developer is essentially a software developer who specialises in designing software and writing server-side web application logic using the PHP programming language. They also look after troubleshooting issues with PHP programs and usually handle back-end components, and support front-end developers with connecting applications to web services. They bring added functionality to web pages.

PHP developer duties and tasks can include:

  • Liaising with front end developers, clients, stakeholders and web development teams to design solutions in accordance with project requirements
  • Creating scripts and efficient PHP modules
  • Ensuring the smooth operation of web processes by testing and developing software against client requirements
  • Report maintenance and file management for strategies developed.

These technical tasks are particularly well-suited to being outsourced as they are repetitive and rules-based, requiring a high level of attention to detail. Organisations free up their local web development teams time by sending these tasks to outsourced PHP developers. This allows your onshore team to focus on performing higher value work.


What key skills and qualifications make a great PHP developer?

PHP programming language can be challenging for many developers, requiring a lot of patience and time management to ensure an application's overall performance and stability matches project requirements. PHP developers need to understand back-end development functions such as software creation and website integration. 

Outsourcing services recruit PHP developers the same way an internal, talent acquisition team would. Essentially, they ask the same questions to understand whether these offshore candidates would be able to provide the level of quality required by Australian organisations:

  • What experience and knowledge do you have using PHP, PHP web frameworks and back-end web development?
  • How familiar are you with MVC design patterns, JavaScript, HTML and CSS?
  • What are your problem-solving and analytical skills like?
  • How do you ensure excellent communication when speaking to clients to bring their web vision to life?
  • What security and accessibility techniques do you use to secure user authentication and authorisation between multiple systems?
  • Provide an example of how you showcased a high level of accuracy and attention to detail.
  • What web development tools and systems are you familiar with?

In terms of qualifications, a higher education degree or certificate in computer science with an emphasis on software development or information technology is desirable. PHP developers need to be able to write code, scripts and understand web development jargon to succeed in their roles. This knowledge is built up through studies in the above areas or hands-on experience in a web development team. Outsourcing companies can help you find the right candidate to meet your organisation's tech support requirements by hiring these specialists who understand how to integrate plugins and “speak PHP” while adding more functionality to a businesses webpage.
