Back End Development

Deep knowledge from building hundreds of websites and web applications, implementing third party tools, and solving complex technical challenges have prepared us to handle your next project.

Making it work, flawlessy

Some parts of a website are subjective, a matter of opinion. Do you like a design?  What’s a good user experience? You be the judge.

But you can’t fake the functionality. The back end either works flawlessly, or it doesn’t

Back end development refers to the programming we do at the server and database level to provide accurate request-response functionality for your site. Many programming languages, frameworks, and APIs must merge into one system enabling access, delivery and storage between the database and the web server. 

It takes years to learn this job, and dedication to continue learning new skills as the prevalent web technologies evolve over time.

We know how to develop, test, implement, and optimize complex functionality for dynamic sites with lots of content

Our back end developers are full stack senior engineers with long experience building websites from concept to completion using best practice methods. 

We have expert understanding of Drupal and WordPress core CMS, and know which contributed modules and plugins can extend your base functionality most efficiently. And how they work in case we need to fix or override them. 

We know how to fine-tune caching systems so your pages load fast on high traffic, large-scale websites. We are disciplined about locking down your private data, to maintain high security standards

The bottom line: it’s got to work

So hire us to make sure it always does.

How our Back End Development team can help you


Drupal core provides granular content management control within a robust platform built for scale and high performance. Developed by developers, for developers, we leverage our extensive Drupal experience to custom-fit you into ambitious and content-diverse websites and applications (although it’s great for simple sites, too). 


WordPress is a powerful website platform right out of the box, readily extendable via plugins. That said, when some of your site requirements just won’t line up with available tools in WordPress’ ecosystem, rely on our experienced back end experts to help you override and customize your WordPress site with best practices.


PHP is a scripting language used in server-side web development. PHP helps us automate processes so that they don’t need to be executed piecemeal in your code every time they occur. Drupal and WordPress are both written in PHP. We use it to deliver custom features as needed.

Enterprise Java

Enterprise Java Beans (EJB) is a Java APIs used for building custom software pertaining to business logic of an application. EJB enables us to develop applications requiring serious scalability and/or specialized business logic. 


MySQL is a relational database management system used to store and retrieve your site data. Part of the LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) stack of open source web application software Drupal and WordPress uses for creating websites. Knowing how to troubleshoot data issues and tune slow queries are among the many essential skills back end devs bring to your website.


PostgreSQL (also known as Postgres) is a powerful, open source object-relational database system based in SQL language with powerful features to help us safely store and scale the biggest and baddest data workloads. We use Postgres to build custom applications for our clients prioritizing data integrity, scalability, and extensibility.

Back End Development case studies

“From providing support when needed to project leadership when asked, the Entermedia team has always come through for us. We’ve been counting on Entermedia for five years to maintain several high-traffic websites in a competitive space, and have also engaged them for custom design/development projects. This crew does not disappoint. Not only have they enhanced our users’ frontend experience, improving engagement and search performance, they’ve also simplified and streamlined our backend experience, making all of our jobs easier. And we know Entermedia has our back and will reply within minutes via slack or email if we need them. Where would we be without them? Don’t want to know.”
