Hire a WordPress developer

Get the flexibility of a WordPress freelancer and the stability of an agency by hiring one of our WordPress developers as your remote team member.

Is a remote WordPress developer right for you?

Agencies with a high volume of projects may effectively use full-time developers to complete all their projects instead of working with us on a pay-per-project basis.

When hiring a developer from us, it’s easy to scale up or down when needed, and it saves you the administration and HR obligations of hiring in-house developers.

Reasons to hire instead of working on a pay-per-project basis

I prefer to have direct control over supervising the developer’s work instead of working through a project manager.

Direct control

I have a high volume of projects that can fill the time of a hired developer, and I want a cheaper option than completing each project on a fixed-price basis.

High volume

I often have additional tasks beyond front-end WordPress development, such as managing maintenance of websites on an ongoing basis.

Details about how it works

Getting started

We help you select a skilled WordPress developer from our own team, and train them according to your preferences.
Your developer will always work in our office under supervision of managers and technology experts, to give the full benefits of the agency model.

Skills and capabilities

As dedicated developers are typically drawn from the pool of developers working on a project basis, the primary focus and knowledge base of these developers is in front-end WordPress development.
If needed, however, we can select developers to meet additional technical needs, such as to perform some maintenance or do some additional coding in PHP.

Communication

You communicate directly with your developer regarding work tasks. To make the relationship successful, it’s valuable for you as a partner to establish clear and open communication, just as you would with an internally hired employee.
Discussion usually goes via online chat and Skype, and partners are always welcome to visit Ukraine to meet their developers in person.

Working hours

We successfully work with many partners in different time zones, from Asia to the US.
We're happy to share our experience on how to make it work effectively, and under certain conditions it may also be possible to make additional adjustments to our working hours in order to facilitate cooperation with you as our partner.

Payment terms

Invoices are sent every week for the hours worked in the previous week and are due upon receipt.
A deposit of $1000 is to be paid before the first week of development.

Scale up, scale down

We can increase and decrease the number of developers you have from month to month.
Unlike with in-house developers, we can just move your developer back to working on a project-basis with other partners if you don't have enough work for a time, or add a second developer if you need to scale up.

Our capabilities

After having built over 1500 WordPress websites, we have collected a wealth of experience that is integrated into our practices and capabilities.

Custom theme build

We develop a WordPress site from your design files, using whatever format you prefer (PSD, Sketch, Webflow, Illustrator).

Premium theme build

If you have premium themes that you like to work with, we can build your sites on those instead of doing a custom build.

Converting to WordPress

If your client already has a site and wants to convert it into WordPress, we’re happy to do it for you.

Premium theme modification

Occasionally we do get requests to modify existing WordPress themes, but many times a custom build is preferrable.

Server migration

Our development team will assist in moving all websites live when ready. We have experience with many different hosts.

Content migration

Avoid spending your own time copy-pasting — in our standard quotes, we include moving 10 pages of content. Additional content is quoted separately.

Yoast SEO setup

WordPress is already optimized to be search friendly, but we also include the Yoast SEO plugin and Google Analytics by default.

Page speed optimisation

We can help make your sites load faster by optimizing images and minifying CSS and Javascript files for you.

Security best practices

We secure every website we build by providing the most current version of WordPress, thoroughly tested plugins, and The Login Lockdown plugin.

Multi-language

We can support multilingual websites by installing and setting up the WordPress Multilingual Plugin.

WooCommerce

Our team can handle product setup, payment gateways, shipping standards and other customizations upon request.

Pixel perfect

We’re happy to develop sites pixel perfect, although most agencies find it more valuable to go with our default “near-pixel perfect” option.

How you get started

Let’s start the conversation and see how we can match your requirements on the skills and capacity that you’re looking for. Tell us over the chat (we love to chat), or fill out a form and we’ll get back to you shortly.

Prefer to start on a pay-per-project basis?

A good way to warm up before hiring a developer is to start with a couple of projects and do some fine-tuning of the communication and preferences first.
