java developer job description
You’re knee-deep in software all the time! In the course of your workday, you might
develop software for internal or external clientele, test software as needed, manage projects, analyze business software and systems, work on mainframe projects, provide quality assurance, test programs and deliver regular reports for colleagues and clients. Your role is found in many different verticals, including IT, banking/finance, manufacturing, government, healthcare and business. Usually, you report to someone within a company’s IT department.
You’re in a role where many opportunities for advancement and promotions exist, although your advancement depends in large part to the market you’re employed in. that means that if you’re a Java Developer living and working in a smaller market, it may be necessary for you to relocate to a bigger market to increase your wages or advance your career. Regardless of your market, you should develop your skills beyond coding to include all the stages of project life cycle and multiple technologies.
required skills and training
Most Java Developer jobs require at least a bachelor’s degree in a computer science/IT related field. It’s rare to find a Java Developer job that does require a formal degree from an accredited university or training center.
In terms of experience, the more you have, the more in-demand you’ll be. While first-time Java Developer jobs may be lower-paying, the opportunity to move up the corporate ladder (or at least earn promotions on a regular basis) is excellent.
