There are so many web agencies out there it can be hard to pinpoint which one to hire. There are three basic categories of web developers.
- The Front-End Developer (aka Front-End Engineer aka “Web Developer / Designer”)
- The Back-End Developer (aka the person no one really knows about – but who is key to the team)
- The Full-Stack Developer (aka the Superman / Superwoman)
Before you get stuck into figuring out which company to hire it pays to understand what different types of developers do. Front-end developers are responsible for the parts of a website that people see and interact with, back-end developers are responsible for the behind-the-scenes code that controls how a website loads and runs, and full-stack developers do a bit of everything
If you are looking for a quick, simple answer to the question “What is a web developer?”, then a full-stack developer is probably the closest thing that you’re going to get. Full-stack developers understand both front and back-end strategies and processes, which means that they are perfectly positioned to oversee the entire process. In the case of small websites, that don’t have a huge development budget, a full-stack developer will often be employed to build the entire website. In this case, it is extremely important for them to have a complete, in-depth understanding of both front and back-end development and how they work. A good development company will have a combination of all three types of developers, together with creative designers, skilled project managers and digital marketing experts.
