Customers love TurnKey (and we love them back!)

3 Years in a Row Best in KLAS for Ambulatory Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) Services

"TurnKey is the only offshore firm we've interacted with that really places an emphasis on retention. They seem to be the only ones that understand how important retention is to maintaining strong product development cycles. Our churn rate with TurnKey has been under 5% annually whereas we were at more than 50% with our previous vendor!"

We've hired 5 full-time software engineers through TurnKey. To date, not a single engineer has left our contract/arrangement. We worked with several U.S.-based recruitment firms, and none matched the speed and quality of candidates referred by TurnKey. Most impressive and unique about TurnKey is their willingness to reach for the perfect candidate. Our requirements are strict, and they did not compromise.

"It's been nearly two years of us working together and we have not had the need to replace a single developer. The programmers have all performed very well and TurnKey has been able to give us information that has helped to retain our key players."


Mackezie Drazan (US)

CEO of MiResource

We have hired 5 total developers including tech lead, full stack, dev ops and firmware. For each hire, a strong pipeline of candidates was provided, and the TurnKey team performed a lot of pre-screening such that those that entered the funnel were strong and relevant. They also helped with setting salary comp, and closing. Finally they continue to provide HR services as well as legal admin services associated with employment of a geographically diverse group of developers.

We started with 8 hired developers and there have been no problems with any of the hires. We are currently monitoring them as we do all engineers but there is nothing to report that would make us consider this arrangement with TurnKey anything but successful. The transparent pricing up front as well as the genuine desire to continue improving with each hire we make is a big difference maker for us.

TurnKey provided high-quality talent at a cost-effective price. We employed TurnKey to manage the hiring/HR/Legal for >80% of our entire Product team - from identifying and hiring Team Leads, to agent level support roles. I also appreciated that they were proactive in suggesting certain criteria and requirements when first starting our search for key team lead members.

The Best E-Signature Software According to G2

We reviewed several similar companies and along with the cost the major deciding factor was the quality of experienced candidates TurnKey was presenting to us. The additional team members worked alongside our scrum teams delivering new feature functionality and enhancements to our platform.We're impressed with the quality of their candidates and the work ethic they demonstrate on a day-to-day basis in our agile ceremonies.


Sandy Speirs (US)

Director Of Engineering at Sertifi, Inc.

TurnKey is well versed in the startup ecosystem and really understands our needs when it comes to offshore dev, particularly how our needs may be different than the needs of a huge public company. I don’t have to explain as much to TurnKey as I have had to do with other offshore vendors—they seem to get it on the first take. But at the end of the day, all we really care about is quality, and TurnKey has delivered the goods on this front better than other firms we’ve worked with in the past.

Key Questions – and Answers! – about CodeIgniter developers


Why is CodeIgniter development popular?

CodeIgniter is a popular PHP framework known for its simplicity, speed, and scalability. It provides a rich set of libraries for commonly needed tasks, as well as a simple interface and logical structure to access these libraries. This allows developers to build dynamic web applications much faster than if they were writing code from scratch. 

Furthermore, CodeIgniter follows the MVC (Model-View-Controller) pattern, which separates the application logic from the user interface, making the code easier to manage and maintain. The framework also has excellent documentation, making it accessible for developers at all levels of experience. Its popularity is further boosted by its lightweight nature and the flexibility it offers developers, allowing them to build a wide variety of web applications with ease.

How to hire a CodeIgniter developer?

The process of hiring a CodeIgniter developer begins with identifying your project requirements and goals. Once you have a clear understanding of what you need, you can post a detailed job description on various job boards and freelance platforms. The job description should outline the skills and experience required for the role, as well as the responsibilities and expectations of the position. After receiving applications, you should shortlist candidates based on their skills, experience, and portfolio. The next step involves conducting interviews where you assess their technical knowledge, problem-solving abilities, and cultural fit. You may also give the shortlisted candidates a test project to evaluate their practical skills. Finally, once you have identified the most qualified candidate, you can extend a job offer. This entire process requires careful planning and execution to ensure you find the right developer for your project.

Here at TurnKey we take a proactive approach to address the hiring challenge by implementing comprehensive, multi-tiered recruiting services.

What skills to look for when hiring top CodeIgniter engineers?

When hiring a CodeIgniter engineer, there are several key skills to look for. First and foremost, they should have strong PHP programming skills, as CodeIgniter is a PHP framework. In addition to PHP, they should also be familiar with other web technologies such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. A good understanding of the MVC architecture is another important skill, as CodeIgniter is based on this design pattern. 

Experience with databases is also crucial, as most web applications involve storing and retrieving data from a database. Apart from these technical skills, problem-solving abilities, attention to detail, and good communication skills are also important. These will ensure that the developer can effectively translate your requirements into a functional application and collaborate effectively with other members of your team.

Top interview questions to hire CodeIgniter (PHP) developers

When interviewing candidates for a CodeIgniter developer position, it's important to ask questions that assess their technical knowledge, practical skills, and understanding of the CodeIgniter framework. Some possible questions include: Can you describe a challenging CodeIgniter project you've worked on and how you overcame the challenges? What CodeIgniter development tools are you familiar with? Can you explain the process of creating a CodeIgniter application from scratch? How do you ensure the performance and usability of the CodeIgniter apps you develop? How do you stay updated with the latest trends and advancements in CodeIgniter development? It can also be beneficial to ask questions about the candidate's problem-solving approach, teamwork skills, and interest in CodeIgniter development.

What are the tools used by CodeIgniter developers?

CodeIgniter coders typically use a variety of tools to create efficient and robust web applications. For coding, they might use IDEs like PHPStorm or Sublime Text, which offer features like syntax highlighting, code completion, and error detection that can greatly enhance productivity. For version control, tools like Git are commonly used, allowing developers to track changes to the code, collaborate with others, and revert back to previous versions of the code if needed. Xdebug is a popular tool for debugging in PHP, helping developers identify and fix issues in their code. For testing, PHPUnit is often used to write unit tests and ensure that the individual units of code are working correctly. For database management, tools like MySQL Workbench or phpMyAdmin might be used, depending on the specific requirements of the project.
