What is a Web Developer?
Web developers are responsible for overseeing all aspects of creating a functional website, including the appearance, functionality, and technical characteristics like speed and the amount of traffic it can handle. Depending on the client's agreement, web developers may also be required to create technical website content. Advanced developers, who can handle back and front-end development, are known as full-stack developers. A good website focuses on both functionality and user experience, and the web developer should therefore be good at programming and familiar with UX and graphic design. A Bachelor's degree in computer science and computing can help when applying for web developer jobs, but ultimately employers will want to make sure you know how to complete the task at hand.
Web Developer Qualifications
The right candidate for a web development job should have in-depth knowledge in coding, while being able to multitask and meet strict deadlines. A basic understanding of SEO is also a plus. The best applicant should also be goal-oriented and possess excellent communication skills. To come out on top, candidates should also have a digital portfolio which showcases their skills and expertise, as well as the functionality and aesthetics of sites they’ve successfully built. At Career Group Companies, we connect employers with qualified web developers after vetting and screening different candidates until we find the best.
