Outsource web developers to the Philippines


What is a web developer?

A web developer is responsible for the development of websites and web applications. They are essentially software developers who focus on web-based content development. The main difference between a web developer and a web designer is that a developer focuses on the functionality of a website. In contrast, a designer focuses on the aesthetic appeal of a website. Developers use programming languages to tell websites how they should function. 

Web developer duties and tasks can include:

  • Analysing project requirements and desired capabilities
  • Drawing on computer software and hardware knowledge to create, modify and write programming code
  • Performing tests to identify possible errors
  • Liaising with stakeholders and users to test websites and receive feedback on potential improvements
  • Deploying code and web-based content into a live environment
  • Reviewing and implementing web security to mitigate risks.

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 web developers.


What key skills and qualifications make a great web developer?

Web developers can specialise in front-end, user-facing development, back-end server-side development or can be proficient in both as a full-stack developer. With the differing levels of expertise, comes the differing salaries. Regardless of what type, all developers should be fluent in programming languages and codes. Coding should be a second language to them to ensure success. 

Outsourcing services recruit web 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 in web development, and is it in a front-end, back-end or full-stack capacity?
  • How familiar are you with HTML, CSS, PHP, Java and Javascript?
  • What are your problem-solving and technical literacy skills like?
  • How do you ensure excellent communication when working with stakeholders to bring their web functionality vision to life?
  • What techniques do you use to mix coding with web design? How do you liaise with web designers or other developers to create an engaging final product?
  • Provide an example of how you showcased a high level of accuracy and attention to detail.
  • What tools and systems are you familiar with?

In terms of qualifications, a higher education degree or certificate in information technology or web development is required. Web developers need to be fluent in coding programs and web development jargon. 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 handle web development from beginning to end.
