How to Become A WordPress Developer.

Starting a career in WordPress is something that would have seemed impossible a few years ago. But now it is not difficult at all.

With WordPress powering close to 40% of the internet, it has long been a reality for thousands of people. In fact, as of now, WordPress is not only running world-renowned websites and blogs but it is also basing millions of dollars in business. Consequently, these days, working on WordPress has become a legitimate career path.

If you are interested in WordPress as your full-time career, this post will show you how you can turn this dream into a reality.We’ll talk about how to choose from the many ways you can work with WordPress and give you step-by-step instructions to get the skills you need and start getting paid.

 

WordPress career path

The first thing we need to talk about is that there isn’t a career in WordPress that you can make. Because there are a lot of different things you can do with the platform.

So, as a first step, let’s take a look at the opportunities available to anyone who wants to enter the WordPress sector.

 

Development/Design

One of the classic ways to start a WordPress career is by building websites. After all, this is what the platform was designed for. Here are your options in this area:

 

Developer –

This can mean many different things. You should generally have HTML, CSS and PHP skills (Javascript doesn’t hurt either). Focus on the back-end or front-end, build custom websites, create and sell your own themes and plugins, work freelance or as part of an agency, and more – it’s your choice.

 

Web Designer –

Comes with the same job description as a developer, however, you’re working exclusively with the design of a website. Designers use design tools to create visuals and sometimes implement their work with HTML and CSS. If the difference isn’t clear, check our list of the differences between developers and designers.

Implementer –

Not really a designer or developer, this describes someone who knows how to build WordPress websites with existing themes and plugins but doesn’t have many coding skills. Page builder plugins have given rise to this kind of WordPress career.
