Job Description for Senior Web Developer

Senior web developers are employed in a variety of industries, including pharmaceuticals and information technology (IT). Most employers prefer candidates who have at least a bachelor's degree in computer technology, although some companies may allow experience to compensate for formal education. Most employers also prefer applicants who have at least 4 years of experience in web design, web software management, and/or technical web support.

Aspiring senior web developers should be proficient in computing languages such as CSS, Java, and jQuery, and knowledge of animation processes such as Flash, SVG, and HTML5 is also helpful. Skill in both web and mobile design is highly beneficial, as is a strong portfolio of previous projects.

Senior web designers work almost exclusively in an office environment with little to no travel required. They are generally responsible for the design and development of front-end and back-end internet applications, and work closely with a creative team to develop products which accurately represent the company. They must also be able to troubleshoot issues, design front-end webpages, and provide SQL support, and be able to share UI and UX experience with other members of their teams. Senior web developers usually report to a director or head of a particular department.
