Why become a Web Developer?

 

Imagine being passionate about your job, solving complex problems, working on interesting projects, and earning a high salary.

 

Maybe you are bored at your current job. Maybe you feel stuck with no room to grow, or perhaps you wish you had the option to work remotely or even freelance. If any of these sound like you, it may be time to make a change.

 

Web developers love solving problems 

Web development is a fast-paced, challenging career centered on creative problem-solving and continuous innovation.

 

As a web developer you’ll work with a multidisciplinary team of designers, other developers, and marketers to realize your projects.

Web developers come from many different backgrounds

While many web developers come from a more analytical or technical background, we have found that anyone can become a web developer if they apply themselves. For example, we have many successful graduates who used to work in marketing, sales, teaching, customer service, finance, architecture, HR, and IT.

What you studied in college doesn’t matter

A study by job board Indeed found that 84% of employers think bootcamp grads are ‘more prepared’ or ‘just as prepared’ to be high performers as degree holders. (Indeed)

Web developers are in high demand

Employers struggle to find qualified web developers, and the demand keeps growing. The average Junior Web Developer salary in the United States is $78,897 per year, while Senior Web Developers can earn as much as $117,848 (Glassdoor Salaries Report, 2018)

 

Web developers are constantly evolving

The technology industry moves quickly, and web developers are constantly learning and advancing in their careers.

 

There is practically no limit to how much you can improve your skills and progress in your career as a web developer.  

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that “Employment of web developers is projected to grow 15 percent from 2016 to 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations. Demand will be driven by the growing popularity of mobile devices and ecommerce.” (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics)

Web developers can work in many types of companies

As a web developer, you have the opportunity to work for startups, agencies, large corporates, or even freelance. You may even be able to work remotely from anywhere in the world.

 

Web developers are shaping the future

From self-driving cars to the "Internet of Things", developers are changing the way technology and the world works.

 

Web developers are empowered to make a difference.
