A web developer is responsible for the coding, design, and layout of a website according to a company’s specifications. The role of a web developer considers user experience and function; a certain level of both graphic design and computer programming is necessary to be successful as a web developer.

The most important thing is to decide in advance what skills and experience you require your web developer to have. 

Do you require an entry-level (junior) web developer or an intermediate or even a senior (expert) developer?

Setting your expectations as to what you need and want is the first essential step to hiring a good web developer, and more importantly, one that is the right fit for what your business needs.

It depends if you want to hire a junior, intermediate, or senior developer. You can hire full-time entry-level (junior) web developers in the Philippines from between $3.00 and $7.00 per hour. 

If you’re looking to hire an intermediate or senior developer, we would advise you to set a budget of between $4.00 and $20.00 per hour, depending, of course, on the level of expertise, experience, and skill that you require. 

Of course, the best and most accurate way to find out how much it costs to hire a web developer in the Philippines is to simply browse the list of web developer jobseeker profiles on the VirtualStaff.ph platform. 

When you do this, you’ll see the “real life” asking salary rates that the web developer job seekers have chosen for themselves. 

After you’ve decided what level of expertise you require your Filipino web developer to have, the next important thing is to determine if they are as good as they claim to be. 

It’s very easy to identify if they are. Simply follow the steps outlined below to ensure that you hire the best developer:

  1. Check the web developer’s VirtualStaff.ph profile and check their resume.
  2. Message the applicant for free inside your employer dashboard, and ask all of the relevant questions you need answers to.
  3. Schedule an interview with the applicant. We would advise you to do an audio or video call, and again you can do this for free inside the VirtualStaff.ph messaging system. 

During the call, make sure to ask questions about the person’s skills again and note how they answer. Did it sound like they confidently know the things they claim to know?

The best way is to post a job and have the web developers approach you. This shows initiative and saves you a lot of time in the process.

Once the developer has applied for your job post, follow the steps outlined in the section above.  

Here are some examples of a web developer job responsibilities:

  • Stay plugged into emerging technologies/industry trends and apply them into operations and activities
  • Write well-designed, testable, efficient code by using best software development practices
  • Gather and refine specifications and requirements based on technical needs
  • Write and developer code

Be sure to include any requirements and qualifications you’re looking for in a web developer. Here are some examples:
