Hear From Our Clients

Ehsan Shariati

Functionland (Toronto, ON, Canada)

We used Winatalent for our react-native project at Functionland, and really happy that I gave it a try. We had used Upwork and Freelancer with 4 unsuccessful attempts for the same project before turning to Winatalent. The level of expertise we received from the developer was much higher than what we got from other platforms for the same amount of money. Moreover, the personalized support we received from their team during the process was invaluable. I extremely recommend using Winatalent and will definitely use it for my future projects.

I am really impressed by the quality of services I received from WINaTALENT. They were right on schedule, charged reasonable prices, were professional and courteous in dealings, and delivered items well before time. Their pipeline was so smooth and simple so that everyone with any level of knowledge can be their client no matter what the project is.

Hiring PHP developers

A PHP developer is a software engineer who specializes in the development of websites and applications using the PHP programming language. They are responsible for writing and testing code, debugging programs, and integrating applications with third-party web services.

When looking to expand your PHP development team, there are a few critical skills and experiences to look for when evaluating candidates:

  • Core PHP expertise

Your ideal candidate should know PHP syntax, constructs, and functions. Look for hands-on experience with server-side programming concepts like sessions, cookies, form validation, caching, security best practices, etc.

Strong object-oriented PHP programming skills are essential. Have candidates walk through sample projects to assess their approach to modeling data, dividing logic, and organizing code.

  • Framework experience

Full-stack developers will be well-versed in popular PHP frameworks like Laravel, Symfony, and CodeIgniter. See if they can speak to real-world use cases and examples.

Modern frontend JavaScript framework experience like React, Vue, and Node.js is also valuable for full-stack roles.

  • Database and API skills

PHP developers should be comfortable integrating APIs and working with databases like MySQL, MongoDB, and Postgres. Knowledgeable of concepts like migrations, CRUD operations, and performance optimization.

  • Deployment and testing

Experience with hosting platforms like AWS, deployment strategies, CI/CD pipelines, unit testing frameworks, and debugging tools will allow them to translate code into shippable products.

  • Communication and Collaboration

It's also important to evaluate soft skills, like developer communication skills and cross-functional collaboration.

Hiring a PHP application developer

When hiring a PHP application developer, it is critical to assess both their core language proficiency and hands-on expertise in applying PHP to real-world apps. Look for candidates with 3+ years' experience building and launching applications using object-oriented programming, mainstream frameworks like Laravel, and integration with databases and third-party APIs.

The ideal developer will have strong technical fundamentals in areas like authentication, caching, and security, along with practical expertise in testing, debugging, deployment, and optimization. They should be able to demonstrate abilities to take concepts from design to shipped products efficiently using modern tools and frameworks. Communication skills are equally crucial to collaborating cross-functionally.

In summary, the focus should be on both theoretical and practical PHP skills that translate directly into building, enhancing, and maintaining your applications.

Offshore PHP development

For dedicated teams, larger offshore PHP development firms can provide resources under experienced technical leadership. Freelance PHP developers provide more flexibility to short-term projects.

Be very selective during the vetting process. Use paid trial periods to evaluate skills firsthand. Clearly outline project timelines, milestones, and technical requirements.
