Job Description: Java Developer Jobs

As one of the higher-paying opportunities for those in the IT field, Java Developer jobs have steadily been available for the right people.

The Job

Work realities:
The computer language of Java is highly popular, so Java Developer jobs are frequently in high demand. These jobs require computer savvy professionals to be able to work with the Java platform to perform a wide variety of functions. Generally, the working environment for this type of position is laid-back and stress is kept to a minimum level. However, just because the atmosphere is calm doesn’t meant the work isn’t critical to the success of a company. For some organizations, having one or more people fluent in Java is necessary for them to hit their expected profit margins and perform at top levels.

Like other IT-related positions, Java Developer jobs pay very well. A mid-level Java Developer can expect to earn just under six figures. One with more experience may well exceed an annual salary of $100,000.

Reporting to:
The Java Developer is most likely to report to someone within the company’s IT department.

Those working as Java Developers can expect to spend their days working knee-deep in software. Their duties may include, but are certainly not limited to: working on the development of software development for internal or external clientele, testing software as needed, managing projects, analyzing business software and systems, working on mainframe projects, providing quality assurance, and delivering regular reports for colleagues and clients.

Data Analyst jobs can be found in many different verticals, including IT, banking/finance, manufacturing, government, healthcare and business.

Future possibilities:
Java Developer jobs offer many opportunities for advancement and promotions. With that being said, it may be necessary for a Java Developer living and working in a smaller market to relocate to a bigger market to snag a larger paycheck or nab a higher title.

Required Skills and Training

Most Java Developer jobs will require at least a bachelor’s degree in a computer science/IT related field. It is quite rare to find a Java Developer job that does not necessitate that applicants hold a formal degree from an accredited university or training center.

The more experience a Java Developer can glean, the more sought-after he or she will be by employers and recruiters. Though first-time Java Developer jobs may be relatively lower-paying, the opportunity to move up the corporate ladder (or at least earn promotions on a regular basis) is strong.

Skills and Certifications:
Most Java Developer jobs require specialized certifications of applicants, such as in the areas of: Java/J2EE technologies, Java Beans, JDBC, XML, Javascript XSLT, HTML, CSS, Eclipse 3.0, JBuilder, CORBA, UDDI, WSDL, SOAP, JAX-WS WebServices, JAX-RS RESTful WebServices, ORB Frameworks and SDLC.
