Want to hire freelance Magento developers on your own? Here are the skills you must look for while hiring a Magento developer
Magento is one of the prominent languages for e-commerce platforms and businesses because of its advanced development architecture, scalability, flexibility, and security features. Hiring the top skilled freelance Magento website developers among thousands of developers can be challenging to you even if you belong to technical background. But, no worries, Ultragenius is here to assist you in hiring only the top 1% among 20K+ Magento developers.
The following skills you must ensure while hiring a freelance Magento developer –
Creative Thinking and Excellent Problem Solving
Creative thinking and excellent problem solving are the two important criteria for a Magento developer. An innovative skilled developer keeps an imaginative view of your business brand and starts working according to your business plan to maintain your business on the top. The developer must know how a website functions, what is required for it to work properly, does the website aligns with your future procedures? The person you are hiring has to be creative enough to come up with new ideas for your business.
Strong widget development skills
The Magento developer must be experienced in developing interactive widgets for the website that makes it more client-oriented and portable. The widget development feature attracts a large audience by making it accessible to most of the customers. The developer must know how to develop interactive interfaces and features in the front-end. On an eCommerce platform, some examples of the widgets include –
- Widget for providing quick access to orders and returns
When a customer buys a product online, there must be a widget for accessing that product, tracking it, and returning it. Users can any time keep track of their order and in case of returning, they can enter the details like Transaction ID, Purchase Date, etc.
So, ask a freelance Magento 2 developer what widgets to include on an eCommerce website.
- Products in the Cart
This is another widely used feature, to list the number of products in the cart. How a particular product is displayed in the cart with its details like price, features, and options such as add a new product to the cart, add to wishlist, and add to comparison options.
- Custom Block Widget
Along with the product listed in the cart, there should be a custom block that must integrate blocks, custom web pages, and widgets and display some other information that might be helpful to the customers. For example, add information blocks in the sidebar, add user-interactive interfaces, add banners in Content Management System (CMS), and custom menus.
Proficient in building custom CMS Themes
When hiring a Magento developer, always check the development skills in designing custom Content Management System (CMS) themes. A Magento developer must possess customization skills to create a CMS theme that meets the client’s requirements. With the increasing demand for CMS software, there is a need for creating unique customizable themes for different websites according to their brand.
jQuery and XML are also necessary for the Magento developer to know as a part of browser-side programming. XML is used to edit layouts and make changes to any web page.
Good grasp on PHP -
Magento framework is written in PHP (Hypertext-Preprocessor) language. So, the developer you are hiring must have in-depth knowledge about server-side programming, technical terminologies and MVC architecture related to PHP. A Magento developer needs to know how to code directly to mobile devices.
Problem Solving Skills
Problem-solving skills are essential for any web developer. There are countless coding and designing problems that one has to deal with while developing an eCommerce website and its related stuff, that needs to be sorted out to get the expected and efficient online shopping site at the desired time. So, check a developer’s ability to think from various perspectives but no worries as Ultragenius’ hiring test provides you the developers only after passing the rigorous vetting tests and assignments.
Strong understanding of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) -
SEO is one of the greatest skills that a Magento developer must be aware of. How SEO helps to get your business’ website on the top and optimize your website’s functioning, plays a significant role in optimizing any website. SEO helps the developer to make changes to their websites frequently that match with the latest trends in the market. Knowledge of SEO is the core skill for any Magento developer.
Knowledge of Photoshop and XHTML
The developer must know how to switch from Photoshop (PSD) to XHTML files, which is known as XHTML slicing. In this, developers do semantic coding to achieve a wide range of customers and a great online presence. The web pages designed using XHTML possess cross-browser compatibility i.e., can be run on multiple browsers especially from mobile browsers and have a uniform content display. A uniform content display is obtained by converting PSD files to XML that helps you get a clean structure of web pages that makes them load quickly. You can ask a developer how to achieve a uniform content display for your business website, what structural changes to be made.
Solid understanding of web markup and UI, UX Concepts
The developer must have a firm understanding of element positioning, displaying the elements, and making components interactive, semantic markup, and other related UX Concepts so they can design the product with the best quality. The developer must be experienced in developing visual effects in presentational markup. For, example – How the heading appears, making text larger and putting weight to it, and giving which color to it, and which markup can include captions, bind columns, and row headings to table cells.
Knowledge of Latest Technological Trends
Your business website must be aligned with the rapidly growing technology of the 21st century. Make sure that the Magento developer you are hiring must be updated about the latest development in technologies along with current trends. Because the developer has to come up with new ideas every time making your business stand out from your competition.
Excellent Vocabulary Skills
Having excellent English vocabulary makes it easy to design a cutting-edge eCommerce website and rank it on the top. The Magento developers you are hiring must be proficient in English and must be fluent while communicating the subject matters.
Proficient in writing optimized and readable code
You must hire the developers based on their ability to write clean and optimized code that is understandable by all the team members, and is scalable.

Top Interview Questions to ask while hiring a freelance Magento developer
A service contract is a set of PHP interfaces defined for a module. It includes -
Data Interfaces - Interfaces that preserve data integrity.
Service Interfaces - Interfaces that hide business logic details from service requestors like web services, controllers, and other modules.
According to service contracts, developers define the set of design patterns that generates a well-defined, durable API(s) that any other module or a third party can implement through Magento models.
Magento 2 uses dependency injection instead of the functionality provided by Mage class in Magento 1.x. Dependency Injection is a design pattern that allows any object B to use dependencies declared by another object A. The dependencies declared by A are usually the class interfaces and dependencies used by B provide the implementations of those interfaces. This provides loose coupling of code as object A is free from the concern of initializing its dependencies and object B decides what kind of implementation has to be provided to object A based on requirement or configuration.
The ObjectManager is a type of service in Magento that instantiates objects at the starting of bootstrapping process. Magento uses the signatures of the class constructors to get information about the object’s constructor dependencies. When you construct a class, the class dependencies which are present in the di.xml file, are injected into the class constructor by ObjectManager.
The ObjectManager can be used to maintain backward compatibility for a constructor, in static methods like __wakeup(), __sleep(), etc., in global scopes, like units of integration testing.
- The index.php file primarily processes the HTTP requests,
- Create a Magento theme folder
- Create a theme.xml file and put basic information like the name of the theme, parent’s theme (if you are inheriting the theme from an existing theme).
- Add a composer.json file to the theme directory and register the package on the packaging server.
- Registration.php file
- Create the static files and folders
- Configure images for the catalog product grid.
- Declare the logo of your theme.
- Basic layout elements like blocks and containers.
- Create a theme extending files, override theme, and base layouts.
- Entity - The entity represents data items, like products, customers, categories, and orders. Each product, category, customer, and order will have its record in the database.
- Attribute - The attribute represents the data items belonging to an entity like product will have its name, price, entity, order status, and more.
- Value - The value attribute is the value of an attribute like the price of any product is 50 rupees.
Composer.Lock contains information about all the Magento packages and dependencies. It ensures that all the website versions on a server should be aligned. If the developer doesn’t use composer.lock while doing changes to the website, the store versions will differ and if the merchant will load it again he/she might face problems while re-installing it.
