Since it is the CMS of choice for most companies, thousands of WordPress developers work on stellar websites every day. However, finding a skilled WordPress development agency can still be a challenge. Putting together a team of talented engineers can be a daunting task. So, how do you select the right WordPress development team out of hundreds in the market?

Well, we’ve put together six tips that can help you separate the wheat from the chaff.

    1. Outline your Business NeedsBefore you begin your search, figure out your requirements first. For example:
      • What is the goal of your WordPress project?
      • Do you want an online store or an online publishing platform?
      • What features do you want to add?
      • Is it going to be a pre-built theme or a custom-made theme?

      Outline your project needs with the above details. (Keep it ready to share it with your WordPress developer when you choose one).

    2. Search at the Right Places After you outline your project details, start searching for WordPress developers on niche job boards. Sites like WPhired, GitHub, and the official WordPress job board are great places to begin your search. You can also partner with Capital Numbers to source handpicked WordPress developers and engineers who can bring tangible value to your business with their expert delivery of innovative, custom WordPress solutions.

  1. Look for Multidisciplinary Resources : If you are looking for end-to-end development, hiring just a WordPress developer might not be enough. Look for a team that provides you with consultation, coding, testing, launch, and support services in such a case. A full-scale team will handle the entire SDLC without you having to micro-manage.
  2. Check for Portfolios and Testimonials : Take a look at the portfolios or case studies of the WordPress development company that you want to partner with. This will give you an idea of their success stories. Check testimonials or reviews on Clutch or GoodFirms to understand what it’s like to work with them.
  3. Understand their Work Process : When you choose a team, get an idea about their work process. For example:
    • How would they communicate with you daily?
    • Will you get instant updates regularly?
    • Would they provide daily code check-ins into your GitHub or Bitbucket?
    • How strong is their NDA?
  4. Ask for a Detailed Quote : Once you finalize a team, make sure the initial quote you receive is detailed. See if it has granular details like features and enhancements. This will lower the chances of unwanted surprises down the road. If you find the initial quote reasonable, ask for a complete project plan with actual costs and milestones.

Hiring the best-fit WordPress team may not be a walk in the park. But, with a bit of research and the above tips, you can find the right agency that matches your needs.
