Job Description for PHP Web Developer

A PHP web developer works with that programming language to implement an organization’s web design and help establish its web presence. While some design elements may figure into a PHP web developer’s job, much of his or her work revolves around bringing the vision of a web designer or design team to reality. Additionally, the PHP web developer works with the web site’s infrastructure on all consumer functions it is expected to fulfill. The development of these consumer-related functions may be as simple as implementing contact forms or formats or as extensive as developing a full e-commerce solution for the company’s website. In that latter case, the PHP web developer must be familiar with developing secure web solutions for business and sales transactions and understand how to create an infrastructure that supports these needs.

The web developer also keeps an organization’s web presence constantly updated. This involves ongoing analysis of the company's requirements, as well as maintaining updated security for any consumer or visitor data stored by the site itself. The web developer likely coordinates with the marketing, advertising, and information technology (IT) departments to ensure that the organization receives maximum benefit from its online presence.

To work as a PHP web developer, a person must be fluent in a variety of programming languages, including the most recent versions of PHP; many companies require a PHP web developer to also have at least some familiarity with HTML, Java, CSS, or SQL platforms as well. A PHP web developer likely needs a bachelor’s degree in computer science or a related field and/or possess strong technical school training and certification in those languages. An employer is also likely to seek individuals for this position who have done previous web development work and possess a portfolio or references to recommend them.
