How to hire a Laravel developer

What skills to look for when hiring a Laravel developer

Experience in PHP and the Laravel framework will be the most crucial skills for these developers. Other skills to look out for include Symfony and CakePHP.

How to broaden your talent pool when hiring a Laravel developer

Laravel is a PHP framework — looking more generally at PHP developers is the main way to broaden your talent pool. Since PHP is a back end technology, one way to broaden the net is to look for experience with databases, which includes SQL and MySQL.

Other skills that can help you broaden your talent pool:

  • Some other common programming languages for Laravel developers include JavaScript, SQL and Python.
  • Familiarity with version control, such as Git and BitBucket.
  • Experience with WordPress, which is built on PHP.

How much does it cost to hire a Laravel developer?

Laravel developer salaries depend on the company size, industry, individual experience and skills, and nature of the work. These factors all influence the salary a company will offer to a prospective hire.

That said, average salaries for Laravel developers in South Africa range from R18 571 for entry-level developers to R21 302 for juniors with two to four years of experience.
