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.
