What Jobs Are These?Fresh out of coding bootcamp, a developer/programmer (yes, there is a difference) is more likely to get a job as a Junior Developer, and then move up the ranks from there. Here are the different positions:
- Junior Developer: This is a beginner developer. In this capacity you work on teams to understand a company’s workflow and learn more about the tech world you have immersed yourself in. In states like New York and California, Junior Developers command a higher salary than most other places in the U.S. But on average, a Junior Developer earns anywhere from $60-80K per year.
- Web Developer: Most coding bootcampers graduate with the skill set to tackle this job. A web developer oversees the development of web applications. Often, a web developer knows one or more programming languages. S/he earns around the same as a junior developer, averaging $60-80K per year.
- Software Developer: A software developer is more like the mastermind behind computer programs. They oversee the research, design, programming and testing of computer software. For all their hard work, they earn an average of $100K per year.
