A website developer is responsible for creating and designing websites. Their primary role is to make sure the website is visually appealing and easy to navigate, but they may also be responsible for the performance and capacity of the website. Website developers can design and create websites from scratch, or they may maintain all technical aspects of the website to include increased site traffic. They can also create or manage web content to meet business objectives.
Depending on the job, they may focus on front-end development, which involves designing sites and producing content, or on backend development, which involves writing code to make website functions work. Web developers can also become webmasters of a site, providing maintenance, updates and troubleshooting when necessary.
