Throughout the last few posts, I’ve been talking a little bit about WordPress Developer Salaries, but have also done so by taking a look at exactly what it means to be a WordPress developer.
If you’re just catching up, the previous posts are:
- A WordPress Developer Salary Should Be…?
- WordPress Developer Salary: Manage That Content
- Of Salaries and Software Development with WordPress
- The Roles of WordPress Development
There have been a lot of awesome comments and I’ve enjoyed hearing the different perspectives and opinions that everyone has brought to each post. There’s one more aspect of WordPress development that I want to look at before ending the series.
I’ve already mentioned this throughout several of the previous articles (and it’s been bought up in the comments, as well), but I thought it’d be worth outlining it here not only to share my concrete opinions on the matter but hopefully as an attempt to provide a reference or even maybe some food for thought for those who are looking for WordPress-related jobs, and those who are looking to staff WordPress-related jobs.
Specifically, it’s about looking at the term “WordPress Developers” and trying to give an explanation as what that really means.
After all, we’ve already said that the term developer is overused to the point of having no meaning, right?
