Your questions, answered

We tried to cover your burning questions but if we've missed something, drop us a note.

Are PHP developers in high demand?
Down Arrow

Yes, PHP developers are still in demand. Despite the rise of other programming languages, PHP remains widely used for web development, especially in content management systems and e-commerce platforms. Many existing projects and legacy systems rely on PHP, creating a continued demand for skilled PHP developers. Additionally, PHP frameworks like Laravel and Symfony have gained popularity, further contributing to the demand for PHP expertise.

What is the hourly rate for a PHP developer?
Down Arrow

G2i is a marketplace where developers set their own rates. We add our fee on top and present clients with a single, all-inclusive hourly fee to keep things simple.

Majority of our customers pay in the range of $60-140 per hour. Rates will vary depending on your geographic requirements and desired level of experience. Developers tend to make adjustments based on project scope, contract duration and market demand for PHP developers.

We believe that fair compensation leads to healthy and productive developers. So we will never ask developers to drop their rate unnecessarily. Instead, we share relevant marketplace data with our community so they can set rates that support their financial goals and enable their lifestyle.

How can I hire PHP developers?
Down Arrow

You can certainly find candidates on sites like Upwork and Fiverr or work through staffing agencies. However you'll still need to spend significant time screening, conducting technical assessments, and interviewing candidates over a few weeks.

G2i can speed up the hiring process and make sure you only speak to vetted and pre-qualified developers. We've honed our sourcing, vetting and technical assessment process over several years with the goal of accelerating time to value for our customers. As a result, most hiring managers feel confident hiring G2i developers based on their technical profile and often, just one round of interviews.

Do I have to pay a deposit to talk to a G2i developer?
Down Arrow

No, this would be counterintuitive to our mission of connecting developers with great companies. Come meet our developers, no deposits. Just pay when you hire.

What happens if a developer we hired doesn’t work out?
Down Arrow

We offer a 40-hour trial period to help mitigate the risk. If a developer doesn't meet your standards during the trial period, we won't charge you. We'll also find a replacement to ensure your project is completed with minimal disruption.

How long does it usually take to get a developer started?
Down Arrow

A few factors can affect the process length, but generally it takes four to seven days to start working with your developer once you've selected the right person.

How do I manage remote developers?
Down Arrow

We believe the best way to communicate is openly and often. Our developers are flexible and will adopt to your team's style. Treat them like your own and have them join your stand ups. Don't forget to add them to your messaging and PM apps!
