Job Description for Web Designer & Developer

A web designer and developer is responsible for the creation, maintenance, and development of a company’s website. Web designers and developers work within creative teams to provide high-quality, accessible, original ideas about their company's website and its associated features.

Web designers’ hours and expectations can vary, but they typically work more hours when getting ready to present a project to developers or when preparing for a launch. Some travel may be required depending on the size and resources of the company; for example, some web designers may meet with clients to get a sense of their vision and provide realistic feedback, while others may be responsible for presenting new ideas to upper-level management or the board of directors.

Most web designers and developers need at least three years of experience in web design. Companies sometimes prefer a bachelor's degree in marketing or business, but it is not typically required.
