Web Developer

Lutfal and Champa and their team (Remote Programmer) in Kolkata have been working with me since 2003.

Andrew R. Taylor

I personally went to India to visit Lutfal and his team in 2007 to start off our project and they made me feel very welcome. I was impressed by their set-up and professionalism. I would highly recommend Remote Programmer to anyone.

Martin J Smith

We have used Remote Programmer for last 13 years (as on Jan 2020) and have always been impressed by the quality of the service they provide. We have a fairly complex website with more than 500 MySQL tables which requires a lot of work on an ongoing basis so we opted to use dedicated resources from them. It is a great value for money.

Martin Gibbons


From insightfulness to exquisiteness, RP proved to be an excellent partner on all aspects. Flexible work schemes, dedicated developers plus an advisory role indirectly.

We worked with Remote Programmer for several years and they provided great service.

Developers are reliable and supported by a flexible, capable and collaborative management team as needed.

Why do you need a Web Developer?

You need a web developer to develop anything on the web.  It can be a simple information website or a robust layered web application. 

You can hire a single web developer to develop a simple website. But to develop a complex web application you are likely to hire a team that must contain one or more web developers. 

Types of Web Developer

A web developer may be categorized based on the areas of expertise. A web developer may be grouped on the basis of the web application layer he works - for example 

  1. Backend API Developer - Expert in back end API development and backend technologies only 
  2. Front end Developer - Expert in front end user interface building only
  3. Full-stack Developer - Expert in both frontend and backend development for a web application

Sometimes they are grouped based on technologies. For example, PHP developer, Laravel developer, Phalcon developer, ReactJS Developer, Yii developer, WordPress developer, Magento developer, and so on.

They are often categorized on the basis of the business areas/industries. For example - e-commerce developer, CMS developer, website developer, game developer, etc.

Tips for Hiring a Web Developer 

You can hire a web developer on a dedicated or part dedicated or usage basis. A dedicated developer is always profitable for you as he will think only for your project. A part dedicated developer needs a monthly hour commitment. Usage-based - go as you require, but the cons are, you may have to wait. You can hire web developers on a fixed cost project basis too. In that case, you have to have the project defined first. 

Why hire a  Web Developer from India? 

The only reason is cost.  You are likely to get better quality at less than ⅕ the cost in your country.
