A Front-end developer or front-end programmer is a developer who specializes in making sure that visitors can interact with websites and web pages. 

Front-end developers’ duties usually include determining the structure and design of web pages, striking a balance between functional and aesthetic design, and optimizing web design for smartphones.

  1. Create a free employer account on VirtualStaff.ph. 
  2. You can then immediately post jobs and have the best Filipino front-end developers apply.
  3. Shortlist and interview the best applicants.
  4. Send a job offer to the applicant that you want to hire. 

It’s as easy as that. And the best part is that all front-end developers on VirtualStaff.ph are people who are looking for part-time or full-time jobs. This means you don’t hire a “typical freelancer” like you would on UpWork, who will typically treat you more like a client, than an employer or boss. 

The key for long-term hiring is to REMOVE freelancing rating systems. This is why we don’t encourage job seekers on our platform to get reviews, as it would mean people who have worked for an employer for several years are penalized. Those with a short-term mentality would be rewarded, as they’d get more reviews by having high employer turnover.

The rating system promotes freelancing, which is the opposite of what you want if you’re an employer or business hiring permanent and long-term staff.

Instead, just like hiring “traditional employees” locally. You will check their work history, resume, and message and interview the applicants.

You’re also fully protected because you only pay your developers the week after they work. Again, this is modeled on the “normal” model of hiring employees and paying them at the end of the week, not in advance and before work has started. 

It depends on the person, and of course, whether or not they are entry-level (junior) intermediate or a vastly experienced front-end developer. Below are the average hourly salary rates for hiring front-end developers in the Philippines:

  • Junior front-end developer: $3.50 to $7.00 per hour
  • Intermediate front-end developer: $4.00 to $12.00 per hour
  • Senior front-end developer: $6.00 to $25 per hour 

These are just averages, and you might be able to hire front-end developers for less. However, we strongly encourage you to look within the range outlined above. Front-end developers in the Philippines usually cost between ⅕ and ⅓ of the cost of hiring locally in the United States.

To find good front-end developers, the key is to do the following two things. 

  1. Write a good quality job post: Accurately describe the job role, responsibilities, and what a typical day would look like if the developer were to be hired by your company.
  2. Screen the applicants. Simply message or/and call with the applicants inside your Virtual Staff employer dashboard. Ask questions about the developers’ experience, resume, work history, skill sets, and other essential things that will help you determine if the person is up to the standard you need.

When writing a job for a front-end developer, or any developer for that matter. It’s crucial that you clearly outline what the job will involve. What languages do you require them to know? 

Don’t, however, just fill in a lot of vague information. Remember that a job post is also an advertisement to attract the most suitable developers to apply for your job. 

  • Looking for a front-end developer with a keen eye for design.
  • We need a front-end developer to optimize our web pages for maximum efficiency and maintain our brand consistency.
  • Full-time front-end developer (work within an experienced dev team)
  • Front-end developer 

As you can see, you have lots of ways to make your job post title stand out and be different. Sometimes, however, the simple and straight-to-the-point “full-time front-end developer” job title can work best. 

Job posts for front-end developers should include:

  • Details: Describe to potential applicants what the job will involve. What will a typical workday look like?
  • Skills and Experience: Be clear about what languages, skills, and experience you require applicants to have. 
  • Salary and Schedule: How much is the hourly salary rate? What is the work schedule? How many hours per week will the front-end developer be working?
  • An example would be; “full-time front-end developer, the salary is $8.00 per hour, 40 hours per week. The work shift is 10am-6pm EST, and work is from Monday to Friday”.

Here are some examples of front-end developer job responsibilities:

  • Develop features to enhance the user experience.
  • Work with our UI designer and SEO specialist to ensure we maximize the effectiveness of clients’ websites.
  • Determine the structure and design of web pages

You must include any specifics that you require applicants to have. Doing this will ensure you get the best quality applicants that closely meet your criteria. Some examples would be:

  • Bachelordevelopers's degree in Computer Science or related field
  • Understanding of basic on-page SEO principles
  • Proficiency in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and jQuery
