How to hire a Laravel developer

Looking for a qualified Laravel developer to join your tech team? Here’s some expert guidance on how and where to tap into this talent pool.

What skills to look for when hiring a Laravel developer

  • Proficient in Laravel and its core principles
  • Strong understanding of PHP and its best practices
  • Experience developing web applications using PHP and Laravel
  • Knowledge of databases such as SQL, MySQL and PostgreSQL
  • Familiarity with MVC architecture and object-oriented programming principles
  • Ability to develop RESTful APIs and integrate them with other systems, and familiarity with third-party APIs
  • Good understanding of general web development concepts, such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript
  • Knowledge of web security best practices
  • Ability to test and debug applications
  • Collaborating with different developer teams to ensure technical feasibility
  • Experience writing well-documented, clean code
  • Experience working with other PHP frameworks such as Symfony and CodeIgniter
  • Knowledge of frontend frameworks such as React and Vue.js
  • Good soft skills, such as communication, teamwork, and problem-solving.
  • Experience with cloud computing platforms such as AWS or Azure.

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.

Writing a Laravel developer job description

To put together a job description for a Laravel developer, check out our guide on creating a role scorecard here, and use our downloadable scorecard template. When it comes to adding required skills to your job description, check out our list of key skills for Laravel developers above.

By putting together a good role scorecard, it will be easier to come up with the practical definition of the right person for the role you are trying to fill. You are then ready to set up your public-facing job advert.

Hiring Laravel developers from South Africa

It's easier than ever to tap into a global pool of tech talent, and South Africa offers a thriving marketplace of developers. For employers, hiring Laravel developers in South Africa provides several advantages:

  • A large talent pool with an estimated 121 000 developers in the country.
  • World-class quality with developers that code in widely-used languages and frameworks, and a growing line-up of successful tech startups.
  • A diverse talent pool that helps to avoid groupthink and drive more profitable businesses.
  • Lower employment costs comparing favourably to more expensive markets like the UK and the Netherlands.‍
