How to Become a Freelance PHP Developer

Does the idea of working on websites powered by technology that is used by millions of people all around the world interest you?

If so, then a job as a freelance PHP developer would be a great fit. As a freelancer, you’re not forced to work on something that isn’t up your alley—you choose your work.

What does a PHP developer do?

A PHP developer designs and develops the back-end logic that is used to power websites. The websites of well-known organizations such as Wikipedia, Slack, and Lyft rely on PHP to power all or part of their systems.

PHP developers will typically work within a framework such as Laravel or a CMS such as WordPress. A PHP developer will leverage the power of a framework and a database to develop anything from ecommerce systems to social networks to web platforms.

What skills do I need to become a PHP developer?

Although certifications are available for PHP developers and programmers, they are not typically necessary. A good portfolio or GitHub profile is usually an excellent way to show off your skills to prospective clients.

A bachelor’s degree in computer science, software development, or other related fields is recommended but not required.

Common skills a PHP developer should possess include:

  • Foundational knowledge of how websites work
  • Keen problem-solving skills
  • Familiarity with standard web technologies such as HTML, CSS, Java and JavaScript , and SQL and MySQL
  • Familiarity with version control software such as Git and GitHub

What are the job responsibilities of a PHP developer?

PHP developers are responsible for maintaining websites, including developing new features, maintaining and fixing existing code, and often integrating third-party services into websites.

Much of a PHP developer’s day is spent writing the back-end code and logic that makes websites work.

Examples of what a PHP developer might do on a daily basis include:

  • Developing new features for websites
  • Maintaining legacy systems, including bug fixing, writing tutorials, and code refactoring within server-side functionalities
  • Working within common frameworks and CMS systems, such as Laravel, WordPress, and Drupal
