Webmasters are true website wizards. They have a great understanding of how your website works, how to monitor its performance using specific tools, and finding ways to fix bugs or improve your site.
You should look for the following skills in your Webmaster:
- Incredibly tech-savvy with a lot of technical know-how
- Excellent attention to detail
- Knowledge of coding, HTML, and preferably several programming languages
- Ability to work under pressure
- Exceptional at (remotely) troubleshooting and diagnosing any technical issues
Interviewing a Webmaster
Are you searching for an excellent Webmaster? Then it will soon be time to get to know your candidates a little better in an interview. With our Webmaster interview questions, your interview can be prepared quickly and easily.
The interview questions we mention in this article below are suggestions for the earlier stages of the interview process and for candidates with a relatively average work experience. They are therefore a little more general.
How to open the job interview
Interviews can be quite scary and intimidating for a candidate. That’s why at the beginning of the interview you should always focus on trying to help your Webmaster candidate settle in. The more at ease they are, the better the interview will go, and the more thorough your understanding of whether they are up to the role.
To do this you can ask some fun and interesting questions linked to the role, they should be open-ended and encourage conversation.
