What is the usual rate for Symfony developers?

When talking about the cost of web site or web application development, there are several factors you must consider to be able to arrive at estimates. For example, there are variables such as the complexity of your web site or web app, the project duration, and the level of expertise you need.


To help you out, we gathered the average annual salaries and hourly rates of PHP developers with skills in Symfony from different countries such as the UK, the US, Canada, and Australia. These figures are from PayScale and Neuvoo.  


     Average Symfony Developer Annual Salary       Average Symfony Developer Hourly Rate   
   United Kingdom    GBP 39,162 GBP 38
   United States USD 100,000 USD 51.28
   Canada CAD 54,993 CAD 20.66
   Australia AUD 66,719 AUD 28.49


Hiring locally is the common and traditional way to go. But today, due to an increasingly competitive industry and the tighter competition for tech talent, companies from startups to large tech firms are turning to IT outsourcing as a cost-efficient and quick solution to find the Symfony developers they need.


As a reliable IT outsourcing partner, we address the needs of small firms like startups and SMEs to be able to find and hire Symfony developers at reasonable rates without sacrificing the quality of their product. We know that this is a vital factor in expanding and growing your business. This is why we source for and connect you to the best offshore Symfony developers at competitive industry rates to help you save on recruitment and overhead costs.

What interview techniques should you use to hire the best Symfony developer?

When hiring IT professionals such as developers, it is important to remember that your goal is to gauge the candidate’s ability, and not to merely pose challenging tasks or problems. The interviews are your chance to determine not only a candidate’s technical skills, but also his/her traits and work ethics; this is to know whether they fit into the role and the company.


As you ask your introductory questions, make sure that your interviewees are as comfortable as they can be. You will most likely be able to receive truthful questions when they are relaxed, rather than when they are anxious and tensed up.


Now, after going through the non-technical questions, it is now time to ask questions which are related to Symfony. To help you get started, here are some questions you may ask:

Q: In Symfony, what are bundles?

A: Symfony bundles are very similar to plugins or packages in other frameworks or CMS. Everything is a bundle in Symfony; this could be the core framework components as well as the code.


Bundles allow developers to utilise pre-built features packaged in third-party bundles. Bundles also give them the flexibility to create and distribute their own bundles.


Symfony bundles come in two types: application-specific bundles, which can be used only to build the application, and reusable bundles, which are meant to be shared across many projects.


Q: What is a controller?

A: A controller is a PHP function that is created to read information from the Request object, and, in turn, create and return a Response object. This Response object can be an HTML page, JSON, XML, a file download, a redirect, a 404 error, or anything else that you need. The purpose of the controller is to execute whatever arbitrary logic your site or application needs to render the object and its contents.


Q: How do you create a controller?

A: This is one way to create a controller (in Symfony 2).

File Location: src/AppBundle/Controller/UserController.php


Namespace AppBundle\Controller;
use Sensio\Bundle\FrameworkExtraBundle\Configuration\Route;
use Symfony\Bundle\FrameworkBundle\Controller\Controller;
class UserController extends Controller

Q: How do you create Action of controller in Symfony2?

A: To create Action of controller in Symfony 2, one can add this code inside UserController.php:

public function indexAction()
      Return $this->render(`user/index.html.twic’, []);

Q: How can you get the request parameters in Symfony 2?

A: This is a method that is used to get the request parameters:

What is the dedicated developer model?

Here at Cloud Employee, we employ a client-oriented business model called the Dedicated Developer Model. With this model, we are able to help clients like you steer clear of the risks and extra costs commonly met with traditional outsourcing.


In this kind of setup, the developers you hire with us will be called dedicated developers. As the name suggests, these dedicated Symfony developers work 100% exclusively for you. They also follow only your processes and use only your tools and standards, which makes them an effective extension of your in-house team.


Thanks to the hiring flexibility that it offers, the dedicated developer model is considered to be the best engagement model. It makes scaling the team according to your business requirements at any given time possible, hassle-free, and more efficient.


The single sum of money you pay covers the offshore team members’ monthly salary and the outsourcing provider’s fee. You only pay for the services you actually need.  



  • Perfect for long-term projects whose scope and specifications are bound to change throughout the development
  • Can cater to projects with a predictable budget despite having an indefinite scope
  • Gives the client full control of the whole process (from recruitment to actual management of the outsourced Symfony developer or development team)
  • Client monitors and assesses the product quality personally
  • Client gains a Symfony developer or development team who works exclusively for the project; thus, they gain tech professionals who are engaged in and fully invested on the project. 


To sum it up, the dedicated developer model is perfect for businesses that:

  • Want to work with a dedicated and exclusive Symfony development team for their project
  • Want to reduce their recruitment and overhead costs
  • Want the advantage of having flexibility and scalability especially during the development.


With this model, Cloud Employee is trusted by more than a hundred startups, SMEs, and blue chip companies from all over the world to help out with their website and web application development. Since our developers follow our clients’ time zones, the risks of miscommunication and other inconveniences are reduced and our clients are able to work together with their outsourced teams at the same time. As a result, the outsourced developers become seamlessly integrated into the in-house team.


We offer all of these advantages and benefits at competitive industry rates. For this reason, Cloud Employee has become a top choice for many startups and firms.
