What it’s Really Like to Work as a Front-end Developer

Being a successful developer goes beyond your title - you need to have a good mix of technical _and _soft skills. Indeed Design Developer, James Zhang, shares what it's really like to work as a Front-end Developer.

More Than a Job Title

After graduating from Georgia Institute of Technology, James began working at IBM as a Design Developer. Early in his 5-year tenure at IBM, James' title changed to Front-end Developer. When he moved to Indeed, his title became Design Engineer which is equivalent to being a Front-end Developer or Front-end Engineer. Before gaining that title, he did similar work at Indeed but as a UX Developer.

On a day-to-day basis at Indeed, James can be found working on web applications and doing a lot of ReactJS.

"When I'm not doing that, I like to hang out with my teammates and really try to connect with other people. I think some engineers go really hard on the [technical] skills, but they don't know how to talk to people. So, it’s really important to converse, get to know other people's perspectives."

At Indeed, James works on the 'internal platform' which is basically building web tools to help the people who are building customer-facing applications. The internal platform is a very test-heavy environment, but it's very low risk. The trade-off for James and his team is that they don't get to do customer-facing work.
