How to Pick the best WordPress designers
Upwork is one of the best freelance markets and so we suggest you search there. But what should be your hiring criteria? Here are the skills you’d want to check before hiring:
- Mastery of the WordPress ecosystem (plugins, themes, etc.)
- Back-end web development, especially PHP and MySQL
- Troubleshooting, debugging, cybersecurity and maintenance of WordPress sites
Many might meet the above criteria. This is where an interview becomes necessary for effective selection through shortlisting. Here are the characteristics of the ideal web developer you should hire:
- Technology fit: You need a WordPress engineer who has much experience in the particular field (for example structures, libraries, and so on.) you intend to use on your site.
- Organization: A well-reported codebase is simpler to keep up and update.
- Feedback: Check feedback from past customers for warnings that can reveal to you what it’s like to work with a specific WordPress developer.
