CAREER STATS FOR BACK-END SOFTWARE WEB DEVELOPERS

Job Growth for Back-End Software Web Developers

When you look at a website, you see the work of the front-end developer: the user interface. But the framework supporting that UI—the server, the application, and the database—wouldn’t be possible without a back-end developer. They are the men and women behind the scenes who make it happen.

With every business needing a website to compete these days, back-end developers are in high-demand and, by many accounts, short supply.[5]

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) classifies back-end developers as software developers and web developers.

Occupation Job Growth through 2026 (National Average)
All Occupations 5 percent
Software Developers 21 percent
Software Developers, Systems Software 10 percent
Web Developers 13 percent

This is the golden age to be a job seeker.’ Co-founder and CEO of ZipRecruiter Ian Siegel, underscoring demand for talent in the tech sector.[8]

Which industries care more about skills than degrees? A lot. “Web developer” and “NET developer” were among the main job postings on ZipRecruiter between March 2017 and February 2018 in which a bachelor’s degree was not a requirement.[9]

These pros are in demand. But where might you work as one?

You know a job market is overheating when companies start dropping decades-old hiring requirements like bachelor’s degrees. But that’s exactly what tech industry juggernauts IBM and others are doing. They’ve even coined a new name for workers savvy enough to go out and get in-demand tech skills by any means possible. Will you be one of the next “new-collar workers”?[12]

Can you think of a day that passes where you do not rely on a website or app to complete a task, whether checking email, your social media accounts, or the weather? Probably not! Every single one of these sites needs someone with back-end software developer training to maintain it. At some point in time, each new business across the country will need a new website, and that will require a back-end software developer. The opportunities could be endless. Take your new skills anywhere you want!

A job well done offers momentary fulfillment, and then it’s over. Not so with programming. A back-end software web developer’s work is never done. New challenges arise all the time. And you know what that means? A win each time you solve one. No coasting, just one remarkable day after the next for back-end developers.
