What does a Junior Web Developer Do?

A Junior Web Developer works with a team of developers to create new websites and applications. The “junior” designation means you work under the supervision of senior developers in your department, but you may be involved in all stages of the project, from brainstorming to final testing. As a Junior Web Developer, you review web design needs and preferences and provide advice on website maintenance.

Is this program right for you?

  • Are you strategic in how you approach change?
  • Do you prefer to work on projects by yourself or in a small group?
  • Are you a tech beginner, but interested in learning how technology and creativity work together?

If you answered ‘yes‘ to any of these questions, this program is designed for you.
