  • Experience

    The first and the foremost thing that a developer requires is experience. We have many learning references, crash courses, and coding schools over the internet where we find many developers. But if you are looking forward in hiring a PHP developer and you are in need of good ones, you should look into his / her resume and experience that he / she has. Where have they worked? How much experience they have? What type of projects they have worked with and how successfully they have achieved their goal? Did they work individually or worked in a team? All these questions and doubts should be raised while hiring one.

  • Developer Capabilities and Qualities

    How many projects he / she has completed? How much profound and skilled is the developer? Is he / she capable for the post? There are people who happen to say they can and are able to do the things but they are actually someone else. A developer should be capable of accomplishing his / her task and should be able to deliver a quality product. He / she should achieve all business goals and should be competent enough to accomplish all project requirements.

  • Development Cost

    The development cost is based on the project and its requirements. It entirely depends upon the requirement, if it's for short-term then the budget changes accordingly and you may go for a flexible hiring option. Before any commitments fix the budget based on his / her experience and quality work.

  • Review the Code

    Before hiring a PHP developer, you should first review the code to check whether the code is optimized and follows the latest coding standards or not. Also, the code should be optimized in such a way that it can be shared and used for the future use.

  • Technology Awareness

    Every day new updates and features are added making the technology more advanced. While hiring a developer, check whether he / she is aware of the updated trends and techniques that being used in the market. Well, one can always make out by reviewing the code, but the important thing is not the knowledge or the awareness of the technology rather he / she should be able to put the knowledge into practice by applying it in the project.

Final Thoughts:
To hire a PHP developer is not an easy task. As PHP is a popular language for web development, it is hard to find a perfect PHP developer. It's important to know what you need, what framework you are using, and what is the final goal of the project? Observe his / her communication skills and understand whether he / she can solve the problems
