Senior Web Developer

Junior Web developer

Cyber studio senior web developers build and maintain websites and web applications. Although their work usually focuses solely on the underlying software and databases (known as the ‘back end’), some of our web developers work on the interface and visual design (the ‘front end’), while certain others combine both (‘full-stack development’).

In all cases our web developer’s primary task is creating reliable and high performing applications and services.


he day-to-day work of a web developer varies depending on whether they work mainly for clients or in-house for an organisation, but most roles include but not compulsory:

  • Writing code in one or more programming or scripting languages, such as PHP or JavaScript;
  • Planning and prototyping new applications;
  • Designing the architecture of the components of an application;
  • Deciding on the best technologies and languages for the project;
  • Testing sites and applications in different browsers and environments;
  • Problem solving;
  • Fixing bugs in existing projects;
  • Testing new features thoroughly to ensure they perform the correct task in all cases;
  • Running performance benchmarking tests;
  • Reviewing colleagues’ code;
  • Building and testing Application Program Interfaces (APIs) for applications to exchange data;
  • Researching, incorporating and contributing to Open Source projects;
  • Meeting designers, developers and project staff for progress updates;
  • Gathering requirements from clients and users;
  • Learning and testing new technologies, frameworks and languages;
  • Staying up to date with new trends and advancements in web development;
  • Building and maintaining databases;
  • Refactoring and optimising existing code;
  • Documenting code so other developers can understand and contribute to it;
  • Designing information architecture within an application or website.

Technical Requirements

  • Familiarity with at least one of the following programming languages: PHP, Javascript, MySQL, Database Design experience

Working Hours

Web developers typically work normal office hours (9am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday). However, those working for agencies may be expected to work longer or irregular hours to meet deadlines, or to work on projects for clients in different time zones.

What to expect

Remote work and self-employment are common as the only equipment needed is a good quality computer and internet connection which we will provide if requested.

Dress code is usually informal except when meeting clients when it’s normal to dress smartly.

A small amount of travel is common in client-focused roles to meet clients over the course of a project. There will usually be opportunities to travel to conferences and workshops as the company builds itself.


There is no formal qualification needed to become a web developer at cyber studio, though we will prefer applicants to have a technical qualification,Relevant to our work:

  • Computer science;
  • Informatics;
  • Software engineering;
  • Web design and development.
  • Knowledge and experience are usually the most important requirements. A relevant degree can provide you with demonstrable knowledge, particularly the fundamental principles of programming and
  • Application design.


Web developers need to demonstrate a range of technical knowledge in areas such as client-side components, server-side languages, web application frameworks and database management systems, as well as experience with version control systems, and a thorough understanding of the architecture of web applications and web security and encryption.

You will need to have:

  • Attention to detail;
  • Logical approach to problem solving;
  • Ability to work independently and in mixed teams;
  • Experience of development methodologies (like agile and waterfall);
  • Ability to manage a complex range of tasks and meet deadlines;
  • Good communication skills.

Depending on your career path, employers may offer in-house or external management, business and systems analysis, and project management training.

Career prospects

Web developers at cyber studio usually start their careers as junior or entry-level developers before progressing to senior or mid-level developers after around three years.

After five or more years the next step is to lead developer, technical lead or head of development. This generally involves managing a team of web developers and contributing to the organisation’s technical strategy and goals. You will usually see the amount of coding work decrease.

The next step can be to a senior or even board-level position, for example chief technical officer (CTO).

Some of our web developers choose to change careers and move away from hands-on development work into a more strategic technical roles like systems analyst, business analyst, solutions architect or technology consultant. These roles require good project management, communication and strategic-thinking skills.

Over time, cyber studio web developers usually broaden their programming knowledge but establish themselves as an expert in one or two required technologies. You need to stay up to date with the world of web development, test out new advancements and integrate them, if appropriate, into the organization.

You can help advance your career by proactively learning new languages, helping out with other projects, leading on new projects, training and supervising new staff and attending client meetings.

Career progression may be faster within a small organization like ours; you will inevitably need to take on increased responsibility more often. However, progression is likely to be less predictable and structured.
