Digital Consultant & Director
Back-end web development involves building the server-side of a website, including the database and application logic. It involves using programming languages such as PHP, Ruby, Python, and Node.js to create a robust and scalable architecture that powers the website. A back-end developer works to ensure that the website functions smoothly and efficiently, handling tasks such as database management, server-side scripting, and API development – the less ‘sexy’ side of web development but incredibly important and powerful. Back-end devs work closely with front-end developers to integrate the front-end and back-end components of the website, making sure that data is properly stored, retrieved, and displayed to the user. Back-end developers must have a strong understanding of server-side technologies and database systems, as well as the ability to write efficient, scalable, and secure code. With the advent of cloud computing, back-end developers need to be well versed in cloud infrastructure as well as services like Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure. At Matterhorn we have a small team comprised of specialist back-end devs as well as high level full-stack developers who can cover both the front-end and back-end aspects of most websites. Creating robust and scalable back-end systems that provide fast and reliable access to data, enabling the website to function seamlessly for the user is the typical objective of a Matterhorn back-end development specialist.

Singapore businesses seeking an innovative approach to their website development need look no further than our team of headless CMS WordPress specialists. As a leading agency in Singapore, we specialise in utilising headless CMS to create fast, secure, and highly customisable websites.
Headless CMS allows for a separation of the front-end and back-end of a website, resulting in faster loading speeds and enhanced security. Our experts possess a deep understanding of this technology and can create highly optimised websites delivering exceptional user experiences.
In addition to speed and security, headless CMS offers the flexibility to easily make changes to the website’s front-end while preserving the back-end. This allows for easy updates to the website’s design and functionality without any worries about disrupting the underlying content management system.
So, for a website that stands out from the rest, offers seamless navigation, and provides maximum security, look no further than our team of headless CMS WordPress specialists in Singapore. We have the skills and expertise to bring your digital vision to life.
CRM integration is about connecting a website to a CRM system to enhance customer interaction and data management. Systems like Salesforce have been designed to help businesses manage their customer interactions, lead capture, follow-up, and reporting. As a CRM integration web developer, our job is to customise the CRM system to meet the specific needs of the business, integrate it with the website using APIs and other methods, and automate tasks to create a seamless user experience. With expertise in both CRMs and web development, we help businesses streamline their processes, improve customer satisfaction, increase sales, and drive better overall performance. By integrating your CRM of choice with a website, we help businesses take their customer relationships to the next level, creating a more efficient and effective way to manage customer interactions.
Hypertext Preprocessor or ‘PHP’ web development involves using the PHP programming language to build dynamic websites and web applications. PHP is a server-side scripting language that is widely used for creating dynamic web pages and is well-suited for developing database-driven websites. PHP web developers write server-side scripts, integrating with databases, building the back-end logic that powers a website. At Matterhorn we have both specialist PHP developers who work closely with our front-end developers, as well as full-stack devs capable of working across both with the ultimate goal of creating websites which function seamlessly for the user. Having a strong understanding of server-side technologies, database systems, and web development concepts is a must when working in PHP. With its ease of use and broad range of libraries and frameworks, PHP is a popular choice for developing websites and web applications. Whether you are building a simple brochure website or a complex web application, PHP offers the tools and resources you need to create high-quality, scalable, and secure websites and applications. Building robust and scalable back-end systems that provide fast and reliable access to data and enable the website to function seamlessly for the user is always our goal.
WCAG accessibility web development involves building websites and web applications that are accessible to people with disabilities, as outlined by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). Approximately 13.3% of Singapore’s population >50 years of age have a disability, half of which have either sensory or visual impairments and would therefore benefit directly from having a WCAG-compliant website the most – these people could be among your best customers (Source: MSF.gov.sg). However, it’s also worth noting that even people without disabilities can benefit from accessible websites. Making your website accessible is more than a social responsibility; it’s also good for business. For example, older people who may have audio and/or visual impairments can still be great customers. As a WCAG accessibility web developer, we ensure a website is accessible to all users, regardless of ability, and that it complies with international accessibility standards. This includes implementing accessibility features such as keyboard navigation, alternative text for images, and accessible color contrast, as well as testing and debugging to ensure that the website is accessible to all users. Being across accessibility standards and assistive technologies is part of the package. With the growing demand for accessible websites and the increasing legal requirements for accessibility, WCAG accessibility web development is an investment which makes both social and business sense.
