Web Developer Jobs Overview

Web developers design and create programs, websites, and applications. Typical responsibilities include writing code according to standard conventions, testing websites and applications, and solving performance or security issues. Developers must be familiar with code editors, programming frameworks, and must be able to code in several languages (e.g. HTML, CSS, and JavaScript for front-end developers; PHP, Ruby, Perl, MVC, and SQL for back-end and full-stack developers). The job requires creativity, excellent problem-solving and analytical skills, and willingness to work as part of a team and to liaise regularly with other colleagues and clients. Web Developer Jobs are mostly office-based, although opportunities for remote or freelance work are common too.

Web Developer Jobs Education Requirements

Most employers require a degree in a technical field, such as Web Development, IT, Computing, Information Systems, or Software Engineering. However, employers are usually more concerned with the applicant's ability to create functional interfaces that can satisfy a variety of needs. Therefore, having a degree is not essential as long as applicants have a solid portfolio or can demonstrate their knowledge of web programming and development in applied settings.

Web Developer Jobs Market

Developer jobs are available in-house at public and private sector companies or through agencies and consultancy firms. The job market outlook is generally positive, and this especially applies to PHP developer jobs and Python developer jobs, as these are some of the most in-demand programming languages. According to the Office for National Statistics, there is an important skills gap in this sector, so demand for skilled web developers is expected to stay strong. The same source suggests that by 2020, there could be 1.8 million developers in the UK.

Web Developer Jobs Salary Information

Entry-level positions pay anything between £19,000 and £22,000, depending on location and company size. After a few years of experience, junior roles can pay up to £35,000, whereas senior developer jobs command salaries of £45,000 and above.
