How to Hire a Filipino WordPress Developer? – Practical Advice

Welcome! You’re in for another practical advice on outsourcing. This is a series of tips and advice sharing what I know about outsourcing, particularly, outsourcing to the Philippines. 

What makes a great WordPress Developer? WordPress Developers are responsible for both back-end and front-end development. This includes creating WordPress themes and plugins. They have different programming skills such as PHP, HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript. They should also have an understanding of aesthetics, like understanding element arrangements on the screen, the color and font choices, etc.

If you are in need of a WordPress Developer and you don’t know how and where to start, I’ll be happy to get you started.

To find a great Filipino WordPress Developer that’s right for your business, here’s what you have to do:

  1. Figure out exactly what you’re looking for 
  2. Browse for resumes of people with WordPress skills
  3. Post a job or contact some people you found through browsing resumes
  4. Interview your applicants 
  5. Narrow down your applicants through a test
  6. Negotiate your terms
