Job Description for Web Application Developer

Web application developers build, maintain and manage all aspects of a web application. ("Web application" is a catchall term for a number interfaces that utilize the world wide web.) One example would be a website, and another could be a mobile phone or tablet app. Web application developers must plan, build and subsequently manage every process of the application's development. Sometimes this is done as part of a team, but it can also be done independently or under the supervision of the employer. Fluent understanding of common developer languages such as HTML and PHP will nearly always be necessary and may need to be demonstrated via a test or a strong portfolio.
