Many Web Developers work on a flexible basis, pursuing a challenging and exciting work-life balance, and taking up a position in this field offers a secure and rewarding career.

Web Developers: A Career In Demand

What Does It Take To Become A Web Developer?

Securing a job in a dynamic and fast-paced industry such as this offers many exciting opportunities and experiences. It is still a relatively new market, and as such, experts are in high demand. To work as a Web Developer, you will need:

Passion: This is not a career for those who are not passionate about the potential of coding, and top Web Developers will often pursue and develop coding and contribute to the online community in their own time. Blogging and being active on social media may also be important in the life of a Web Developer.

Experience: You should have many years of experience of working in web-related industries, and a relevant degree in computer science or a similar discipline. A clearly demonstrable track record will help you to secure a position as a Web Developer within a large organisation.

Great communication skills: Although a great deal of your work is likely to be carried out independently, you will also work within teams and should have excellent communication skills to manage this efficiently.

Web fluency: You must be familiar with and experienced in a range of web technologies and coding languages, such as JavaScript, HTML, SOAP and AJAX. The more expertise you have developed in this area, the better your opportunities to work with complex and exciting projects worldwide will be.

Understanding of business strategy: Every business needs to know that their online presence is in safe hands, so they will require you to have a secure knowledge of internet applications and protocols as well as experience with, and understanding of, business strategy.

Ongoing development: The rapidity with which online business is developing is likely to continue into the foreseeable future, so an adaptable attitude and willingness to invest in your own career development and upskilling will be crucial.
