Self-hosted website builder CMS is built using programming languages, frameworks, libraries and databases. In many cases they have a monolithic architecture hence developers may be required to be full stack - they need to know both Frontend (FE) and Backend (BE) technologies inc. a database used in a CMS.
It is worth noting that CMS developers may not always be required to know as much about Frontend related technologies and security and performance stuff as Frontend developers because a lot is often handled by a CMS out of the box.
The knowledge of a CMS is critical. For example, to work efficiently with WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Magento or any other similar CMS, developers need to know how they work under the hood.
Since website builders are often used to create blogs, landing pages, business websites, e-commerce platforms, SEO is an important requirement.
ℹ️ SEO stands for Search Engine Optimisation and is critical for ranking in search engines such as Google, Bing, Yandex and driving organic traffic to websites.
WordPress CMS developers must be proficient with the above-mentioned technologies as well as have experience with creating plugins and themes (customisable design) and writing scalable, reusable and secure code.
