What does a Web Developer do?

Web Developers develop, test and deploy web applications and services. They may work in tech startups, mid- to large-sized software development companies, and consultancy firms, as well as a number of other sectors.

They typically work as part of cross-functional teams, where their main responsibilities include developing, testing and finalizing solutions, fixing errors, and coordinating work with the development team and other stakeholders. They are also expected to continuously grow their skillset, so they can stay abreast of new tools and technologies and increase their chances of promotion and specialization in other IT roles.
