Out of innumerable Magento developers today, it becomes a little difficult to find out the right one to get your e-store created. Here are the qualities of a good Magento developer that you need to look for before choosing. 

With the increasing demand for eCommerce stores because of the ease of online shopping, more and more businesses are going online to sell their products now. A fully functional online shop has proved to get them much more revenue, customers, and profits as compared to a physical store in the market. But then, there has always been confusion among the business owners about the right platform to build these stores. 

Magento, with its high-end features, plugins, responsive themes, and extensions has always been a favored choice of platform for building sales-driven e-stores. But using only a power-packed platform is not enough to end up with a great online store. The platform has to be used in the right way as well. Making the best use of it can help you to achieve what kind of store you exactly want. With this in mind, the business owners need to make the right choice of a Magento developer. Right from installation to customisation, use of the plugins, extensions, themes, etc. the developer should be an expert in all. This would ensure a high-performance, fast, and a customer-driven store for your business. 


Core expertise:

The professional must have extensive qualities or skills and core expertise in Magento, its latest trends, updates, and versions. No matter if you want to migrate your existing store to Magento, or you want to get a new custom shop created with this platform, core expertise is essential for all. Integrating third-party APIs and maintaining the store are also counted in the list of core skills of a developer. 


Knowledge of the latest extensions and trends is essential:

Ecommerce store development is not only about using advanced technologies, but it is also about staying up to date with the recent trends. A good developer must have comprehensive knowledge about the recently-used and most demanding trends as well to ensure modern and updated stores for business. 


Problem-solving skills:

The development and design of an online store can get complex and challenging sometimes. This makes it essential to possess problem-solving skills. Overcoming these challenges needs this quality. If you have expertise and the right skills to overcome every challenge that comes your way during the development or designing process, you can surely end up with a flawless store. 


Cross-vertical experience is must:

The Magento developer you want to work with must have an experience of dealing with clients across different types and levels of eCommerce businesses. Also, the professional must be able to work with diverse types of eCommerce ventures like a fashion business selling garments, fabrics, etc., a grocery eCommerce business, medicine business, beauty essentials, or anything else. Having an expose to all these categories can ensure a successful store for your business too. 


Excellent communication skills:

Another essential quality to look for in a Magento professional is communication skills. Every project and every store has different expectations and requirements. The developer needs to listen to the client carefully and understand these requirements well to deliver the exact match at the end. 


Top-notch work quality:

Quality of the work matters today. The competition is going tougher with the introduction of every new similar online store. Offering a great shopping experience is the main objective of every eCommerce business. There comes the quality of the store. It should be a fast, high-performing, feature-rich, unique, responsive, and an easy-to-navigate shop with a simple checkout process and multiple payment gateways. Look at the past projects of the developer to get a clear idea about the quality of work the professional delivers before choosing to work. 


Apart from these, the developer must maintain professionalism, possess multi-tasking ability, creative skills to ensure an interactive layout and design for the store with quality graphics and simple yet catchy content, and of course must have SEO knowledge to ensure an optimised shop.
