What interview techniques should you use to hire the best OpenCart developers?

When you hire OpenCart developers, remember that the interview’s purpose is to assess a candidate’s skills in just a short amount of time and not to intimidate candidates with challenging questions or activities. As such, here are a few recommended interview techniques and questions that employers can apply or ask to hire the best OpenCart developers.


Have them describe the structure of their recent project
Ask candidates to discuss the most recent application they finished. If needed, they may also use a sheet of paper or a whiteboard to further discuss and illustrate their project. By using this interview method, employers can determine two things:


First, employers can quickly recognise whether an OpenCart developer has a solid background in web development and the OpenCart platform. By discussing their recent project, employers can see what other skills a candidate possesses that is not written in their CV. In addition, having candidates explain their project will demonstrate how involved or committed they were during the project.


Second, employers can tell whether a candidate has a good ability to explain a technical concept. Check whether it can be understood by a non-technical person. Aside from this, it is also recommended to keep an eye on the candidate’s non-verbal cues when presenting and check for ideal soft skills such as leadership and communication skills. The ability to explain technicalities to a non-tech person is a must-have trait you should look for especially if you are hiring for a senior role.


Conduct technical tests
Many would think this is a usual part of the hiring process, but unfortunately, this is a process often overlooked by some companies when hiring developers. To thoroughly screen candidates, developers must demonstrate their expertise by passing a technical test. Employers may opt to conduct free or paid online programming tests that give an insight into how your candidates think and work. When you hire the best OpenCart developers, it is recommended to hire developers who are not only good at coding, but also great at problem-solving.


If you can’t conduct a technical test, employers may require candidates to write a sample code (5-10 lines of code or 2-3 sample codes) instead. This gives employers insight on the developer’s expertise in his or her language or framework.


Here is a sample test question that you can ask your OpenCart candidate to code.


Q: What is wrong with the following set of code? Explain and write its correct form.

if ($my_example == 1)
class ModelExampleExample extends Model
public function addExample()

A: This is one of the basics when coding on OpenCart (and PHP) development. The braces should not be written in a new line and instead, should always be on the same line and typed with a space before it. This is how it should be written:

if ($my_example == 1) {
class ModelExampleExample extends Model {
public function addExample() {
} else {

Q: Give an example of a blog extension structure for OpenCart.


class ControllerCmsBlog extends ***Controller*** {
// If no method is called index is called by default
public function index() {

Our dedicated recruitment team will then conduct a local sourcing of the best available OpenCart developers who match your qualifications. Afterwards, we forward CVs of shortlisted applicants and from this list, you select the OpenCart developers whom you like to move forward to the online interview and technical testing.

What is the dedicated hiring model?

This unique business model allows seamless communication and collaboration between an in-house and offshore team as they work together during the same time zone. As such, the dedicated hiring model minimises miscommunication and remote work issues on both teams and enables the offshore OpenCart developer or team to be part of the in-house team’s infrastructure and methodologies.


Because of these benefits, many prefer incorporating this model and consider it as one of the best engagement models for companies with offshore teams. Another advantage to this model is that it enables in-house teams to flexibly request additional offshore developers at any given time during the project’s development. Because of this flexible and practical arrangement, companies can easily grow or minimise their offshore team members.



  • The dedicated hiring model is recommended for long-term projects with undefined project scope and requirements.
  • Despite its undefined nature, the budget can still be estimated.
  • This is recommended for entrepreneurs or managers who prefer to handle their offshore team hands-on.
  • Having the offshore team directly work with their in-house team or client enables full monitoring of the project’s progress and quality.
  • By integrating the offshore developer as an extension of the in-house team, the offshore OpenCart developer gains a better understanding of the in-house team’s objectives and expectations.
  • The offshore developer or development team work exclusively for you. 


The dedicated hiring model is recommended for businesses that:

  • Prefer to directly communicate and work with a dedicated offshore OpenCart developer
  • Prefer to minimise on costs in terms of recruitment and operations
  • Require a scalable and flexible offshore team during the project


Combining the dedicated hiring model and Cloud Employee’s 20 years of experience in the IT outsourcing industry, our dedicated team offers an efficient, effective and unique business model. Our dedicated developer model has simplified the difficult and hassle recruitment and hiring process, made working practices more flexible and efficient, and bridged the gap between the in-house and offshore teams—all for a competitive industry rate. As such, Cloud Employee believes our business model actually works better than IT outsourcing.
