Coldfusion developers write programs and build web applications via the ColdFusion rapid development program and ColdFusion Mark-Up Language. The ability to troubleshoot, proof, test, and debug code is important in this position, as programs must be developed and then tested for bugs and other problems.
Strong computer skills are important in this position to use jQuery, XMl, HTML, CSS, and JSON, though these requirements vary by employer, and applicants must be able to write complex SQL queries and understand source control and object-oriented programming. Coldfusion developers typically work full-time in an office environment to design, develop, and modify ColdFusion applications, and some work may be done independently while most tasks are performed on teams.
Some overtime on nights or weekends may occasionally be necessary in this position, and strong communication skills are highly beneficial as some may be tasked with providing training and support for both technical and non-technical staff members. They may communicate with end-users to identify problems and how they can be resolved, and it's important that they stay up-to-date with all new technologies and developments in the field so that recommendations and changes can be implemented. A bachelor's degree in a computer science field is generally required for this position, though some employers may accept those with experience in place of educational requirements.
