    Middle WordPress developer, 5+ years of experience

    In 2018, Alex decided to make a career pivot and try herself in IT. She chose Beetroot Academy for her studies, and after graduating, she joined the incredible WordPress development team at Beetroot.

    I started ballet dancing at the age of 30 and never regretted it. Dancing helps me maintain physical activity and discipline and gives me incredible emotions. I love watching TV series and knitting: this is how my brain and body rest, plus I have new clothes after. It’s a win-win! I have a French bulldog puppy named Freddie, who always sleeps near my workplace.

Why WordPress?

Leverage flexibility and scalability

According to recent statistics, WordPress powers over 43% of all websites on the internet, including big names like Forbes, The New York Times, and even the White House.

Being an open-source platform with an extensive library of plugins and themes, WordPress makes it an affordable solution for creating top-notch business websites,
e-commerce shops, media platforms, and corporate web portals.

Moreover, WordPress’s white-label potential, affordability, user-friendliness, customization options, and reputation make it an ideal choice for digital agencies aiming to offer versatile websites and rich digital experiences under their branding.
In addition, being one of the world’s dominant Content Management Systems (CMS), WordPress offers enough scalability to fit the needs of small and midsize businesses as well as global brands and corporations.

Reasons to hire a WP developer for a digital agency

Streamline your work, focus on your goals

Running an agency can be challenging, with the need to maintain consistent service excellence while managing cash flow to scale. Moreover, the fickleness of projects, limited local tech talent, and the unreliability of freelance coders can further complicate matters.

As one of Beetroot’s clients confessed, it can feel like riding a broken bicycle while juggling flaming batons.

Hiring a dedicated WordPress developer with Beetroot proved to be a solid solution to this problem. Our experienced WP programmers will expand your production capabilities by bringing deep technical expertise in specific areas, such as WordPress plugins, WooCommerce, headless WordPress, or custom PHP development.
No more juggling, no more burning. With Beetroot, you can enjoy pure development zen and focus on your growth targets.

How much does it cost to hire an in-house WP developer?

WordPress developer salaries vary depending on several factors, including experience and skills. You can hire inexperienced programmers for less or opt for middle and senior developers who charge more but work more efficiently.

Roles and responsibilities also affect pay, with custom WordPress solutions offering the highest salaries. Location is another factor, with rates varying to match local salaries. Finally, the type of employment, whether freelance or in-house, also affects pay.

Freelance WordPress Developer Rates

According to Upwork, one of the leading platforms for hiring freelancers, average hourly rates for freelance WordPress developers differ by location. For instance, in North America and Western Europe, the average hourly rates range from $50 to 72/hr. However, the rates are considerably lower in Eastern Europe and Asia, varying from $35-50 per hour.

It’s important to note that these rates can also vary within a region, depending on factors such as experience, skills, and the project’s complexity. Some freelancers may charge a fixed project fee instead of an hourly rate.

  • Cons

    • Limited scalability and expertise
    • Risk of miscommunication due to language barriers, cultural differences, and geographical remoteness
    • Security violations due to the nature of freelance work and uncertainty of who you are working with
    • Quality may vary as there is no team collaboration to ensure consistency and best practices
    • Dependability may be an issue as freelancers may have personal commitments or emergencies that can affect project timelines
    • Potential lack of support after project completion

Benefits and Challenges of Hiring WP Theme Developers via an Outsourcing Partner

  • Benefits

    • Expertise and Flexibility: Access to a wide range of specialists with varying expertise and experience for flexible and customized web development solutions.
    • Talent Pool and Additional Services: Quick access to a broader talent pool, including QA engineers, project managers, and consultants, for better project support.
    • Reliability and Stability: Long-term cooperation with a reliable team that can provide a substitute developer in case of unforeseen circumstances or course changes.
    • Technological Advancements: Access to the latest technologies and tools that tech companies stay updated on for the best project solutions.
    • Focus on Core Competencies: Outsourcing technical aspects to experts improves product quality while saving valuable resources.
    • Scalability and Risk Management: WordPress agencies can quickly scale up or down to match project requirements with established processes for risk management.
  • Challenges

    • Higher costs. Working with an outsourcing partner will cost more than choosing a freelancer. However, it comes with several additional services, from tailored recruitment to assisting with team scaling and retention, and is often significantly more affordable than hiring in-house tech specialists since the outstaffing company covers all administrative expenses.
    • Communication lags. Sometimes, companies may experience communication problems due to intermediaries between the client and the WordPress developers, but direct contact between clients and programmers can be encouraged to minimize this drawback.

WordPress vs. Drupal vs. Joomla vs. Webflow

Hiring WordPress programmers is more cost-effective than hiring Drupal, Joomla, or Webflow developers due to its popularity and a larger pool of specialized developers. The extensive WordPress community also provides resources that reduce development time and cost.

For example, according to Glassdoor and ZipRecruiter, the average annual salary for U.S.-based developers working with Drupal is approximately $95,000. For Joomla developers, the average annual salary is around $90,000. Webflow developers can expect to earn an average yearly salary of nearly $82,000.
