How to hire dedicated WordPress developers? Skills to look for, interview questions, and more

We are in a digital age where online presence can make or break a business. When it comes to building websites that combine aesthetics with functionality, WordPress has emerged as the go-to platform for individuals and businesses looking to build stunning websites that leave a lasting impression on their users. This has created a high demand for WordPress programmers who can effortlessly design, develop, and manage WordPress websites for your business.

However, recruiting the right talent is not an easy job because of the high competition among companies to hire dedicated WordPress developers. So, we have created an excellent resource for you to help you know more about the hiring process of a WordPress developer. Let's get started!

Skills to look for in a dedicated WordPress developer?

At a high level, hire dedicated WordPress developers who have the following skills in their arsenal:

1. Proficiency in PHP

It is the most popular server-side scripting language for creating websites, and an ideal candidate should have basic knowledge of PHP to work on WordPress development. The language was designed for web development and is used in more than 78% of all websites. It offers plugins, third-party integrations, and other features that assist in building efficient websites. Consequently, PHP is one of the critical WordPress development skills that every manager should be mindful of when hiring dedicated WordPress developers.

2. High-level proficiency in HTML and CSS

HTML and CSS are unavoidable skills that every web developer should have. These two are the backbone of any website. Where HTML is a markup language that provides the site’s framework and displays all the content on the webpage, CSS or Cascading Style Sheets governs the appearance of all design components and other web-related elements on a webpage. Therefore, you should hire dedicated WordPress coders who clearly understand both technologies.

3. Knowledge of JavaScript

Where HTML and CSS provide the framework and design aspects of web development, JavaScript is a client-side scripting language that provides functionalities to make web pages more interactive and dynamic. You should hire dedicated WordPress developers who have knowledge of JavaScript libraries and frameworks like Angular and Vue. An ideal candidate should understand how these libraries bring more functionality and efficiency. Additionally, ensure that they have proven experience developing more interactive pages that can resolve your customer’s pain points.

4. Familiarity with Photoshop

When designing a WordPress theme or any webpage, developers may need Photoshop to convert PSD files to HTML. Moreover, various aspects of Photoshop like the Move tool, auto-select, trim a photo, and layer option can come in handy while implementing banners and images in different sections of the pages. When you hire dedicated WordPress developers, ensure they have basic knowledge of Photoshop.

5. Knowledge of Bootstrap

Although it is not a mandatory skill to have, its knowledge can tremendously improve the development process. Bootstrap is a collection of common HTML components, including Navigation Bar, Breadcrumbs, Forms, Modals, and Carousel. Developers can easily copy and paste the code to save time in website development as it takes a lot of time to code any website from scratch. Thus, a clear understanding of the Bootstrap framework can help developers meet the deadline. Therefore hire dedicated WordPress developers with a basic understanding of Bootstrap.

6. Hands-on experience with Git

Git is a code version control system that allows developers to track a project’s progress and save all the work effectively. It is also used by developers exclusively to develop, ship, and manage their software. Hire dedicated WordPress developers who have proven prior hands-on experience with Git.

Writing a job description is a tough task, but it's critically important that you write one that will provide talent with a clear idea of what your business expects from them. The best job descriptions are engaging and inclusive as they allow professionals to understand and evaluate the challenge.

Top 10 dedicated WordPress developer interview questions

Whether you're an IT recruiter or a project manager, you know that hiring dedicated remote WordPress engineers is critical to the success of your project. Here are some sample interview questions to use when looking for a new dedicated WordPress developer to work on your online applications.

The goal behind asking this question is to understand how well the candidate can distinguish between the various alternatives for theming a WordPress site. A WordPress site can be developed using three options. First, using an existing theme, second, by customizing an existing theme, and third, developing from scratch (with a new theme). Examine whether the candidate is clear about the above possibilities and why he would recommend one over the other for your project.

Managing content on a WordPress site is already straightforward. But, it's also essential to make sure the website is developed in such a way that the information can be easily updated and controlled.

WordPress offers a variety of plugins to extend your website’s functionality. As a result, it has become one of the most popular CMSs in recent years. Some of the essential plugins include SEO Plugin, Caching Plugin, Anti-Spam Plugin, and Contact Form Plugin. Hire dedicated WordPress developers who have foundational knowledge about these plugins.

Asking this question can ensure the developer has enough experience developing for all devices. For example, the developer may answer in the following manner: One method for making a website mobile friendly is to create a mobile version of the site. The second most prevalent option is to design a mobile-friendly website.

Backing up the site is as critical as building it. So when you hire dedicated WordPress developers, keep in mind that your potential developer should have a good understanding of data backup and management. He or she may answer in the following manner: Every WordPress website should be backed up in case the site’s data is lost. However, there are several other backup options accessible on the internet that can assist you in backing up your website.
