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.
