Freelance

The number of freelancing WordPress developers is enormous.

Outsource WordPress Developer

Outsourcing is one of the most popular hiring models in IT. Especially after the lockdown, more experts began working from home. In a nutshell, outsourcing is a better version of freelancing. You work with a person on a regular basis, so you do not have to search for a new employee after each project.

An outsourcer may be found in various places. These can be freelancing platforms, social media, recruitment agencies. It all depends on the channels you choose. However, be aware that outsourcers, just like freelancers, often tend to get additional work from outside the company if their pay is low, and there isn’t much to do. This lowers their dedication to the team.

  • The hiring process is easier.
  • Responsibility for the result is on the vendor.
  • There is no need to provide special equipment or software.
  • It requires fewer management efforts.
