Need to add a qualified WordPress developer to your project team?

While many candidates claim this title in the job market, few developers are talented or truly master the skill set required to earn this title. UNE® makes it easy for you to find that rare gem by offering you the benefit of its experience in recruiting experienced, high-caliber people.

WordPress provides by default all of the features needed to create a website. Beyond the simplified publication of a blog, historically at the origin of this CMS, complex websites are perfectly developable on the WordPress architecture. The infinite possibility to extend the basic system by writing plugins makes this CMS really popular. To develop a clean theme or extension, the WordPress developer must master HTML, CSS and PHP. He may need to build an e-commerce site using plugins such as WooCommerce or WP eCommerce, a blog or a site with advanced features, as well as a simple showcase site.

The WordPress developer needs to know the basics such as how to design a child theme, the intricacies of designing a particular theme and all the subtleties of creating an extension from scratch. The creation of themes and plugins requires an indispensable rigor to ensure the security of developments, as well as their evolution. He can work on a project leading him to extend the functionalities of the core as well as third party extensions, for example WooCommerce. WordPress is in constant evolution, so its entire ecosystem must evolve together.

The WordPress developer must therefore stay abreast of new developments and keep up with the latest developments, especially in terms of the programming language.

In terms of training, the WordPress developer may have followed a short computer science cycle or an adult education course in a multimedia school to obtain a web developer certificate, and acquire skills in PHP and HTML/CSS. The experience of the WordPress world is then learned through projects and the difficulties encountered during the creation of a site.

To find the rare bird, UNE® has a constantly growing portfolio of competent and motivated candidates. A safe and fast way to consult a careful selection of candidates that match your job offer.
