Full stack Symfony developer for hire

Hire an experienced PHP Symfony developer for your next web or mobile application. Peter works freelance, contract or dedicated and builds full stack Symfony applications delivering long-life business software.

Trusted Symfony development

I’ve developed 30+ Symfony applications since 2008, as an expert freelance Symfony developer I excel at programming custom Symfony applications and mobile backends. Come if your business is growing, if you need an external Symfony contractor, or it’s time to change your Symfony agency.

I’ll work with you to build your next business on Symfony, add an API to your Symfony framework project, use Symfony for data processing and ETL, or integrate Salesforce, Shopify, Hubspot or Microsoft Dynamics into your website.

For many it’s the ongoing support and upgrades to Symfony 6 I provide that give peace of mind.

Peter is a consumate professional. He's helped us design and implement our progression to becoming a fully digital business, in particular programming successive enhancements to our Symfony applications.

Our UK revenue has doubled in the past few years in large part thanks to the changes Peter was instrumental in delivering.

Symfony Development FAQs

Can you work with our in-house/agency team?

Absolutely! In my career I’ve worked client and agency side, managed teams, and been an advisor and consultant to companies and non-profits. I fit to the way you need me to work.

Our Symfony developer has left. Can you take on our web application project?

Yes. I’ve spent 13 years rescuing Symfony projects where developers have moved on, disappeared(!), or the Symfony app was outsourced and poorly built. I’ve seen a lot and I take a pragmatic view about its current state.

Do you need documentation?

A lack of documentation is no problem as - like Poirot - I use the “little grey cells” to get inside the mind of the original freelancer and understand what they built. This allows me to maintain and develop your Symfony application.

If your developer is around, a handover helps!

Can we keep our current Symfony hosting?

Yes, if it’s not locked down by your current agency. I’ll tell you if you can get better value hosting or if it’s not providing the reliability you need, and I can spec and architect hosting if you need something different.

Do you support older versions of Symfony?

Yes! I develop and support symfony 1.4, Symfony 2.8 and Symfony 3+. Head over to my dedicated legacy Symfony support page for more details.

Don’t know what version of Symfony you’re running? I’ve a guide to help you find out.

Can we test working with you before we commit?

Absolutely. I understand how it feels when committing to a new development partner and I want to make it as easy as possible. Take me for a “test-drive” on a small project or for consulting, and see how we get on.

Is it cost-effective to update older Symfony applications?

Often, yes. There’s many factors to consider and every situation is different, so get in touch for a chat.
