Which Web Developer Jobs can I get after coding bootcamp?

Software Engineer

Related titles: Developer, Software Developer
Average Salary for Software Engineer - $97,950

Software engineers are involved in all aspects of computer software and programs including design, development, testing and evaluation. Although writing and understanding code is essential to be a software engineer, most engineers are primarily concerned with testing and analyzing software functionality, developing algorithms and debugging.

Software engineers often work in Java and C/C++ or with mobile technologies like Android that employ Java. Because C/C++ and Java are often the primary languages taught in computer science degree programs, it’s a popular choice for CS graduates. The websites of Google, YouTube, Amazon and Twitter all use C/C++ and Java. A few bootcamps that teach these languages include:

Eventbrite is an online ticketing platform with a 145-person engineering team, and has hired 8 coding bootcamp graduates from Hackbright Academy for the job "Software Engineer Level One." 


Example: Debbie and Duran both found jobs using C#


Front-End Developer

Related Titles: Web Developer
Average Salary for Front-end Developer - $101,800

Front-end developers work on the look and feel of a website. They design buttons, layouts and are responsible for how a user interacts with or obtains information from a website. A front-end web developer’s role may be strictly technical, working with the website’s design and functionality or more customer-oriented, consulting individuals on the user experience and interface for their website.

Front-end development involves learning HTML, CSS and JavaScript, which adds interactivity to the website. Since every website has a front-end component, all will use HTML and CSS, but a few websites such as Yahoo, eBay and LinkedIn also make heavy use of JavaScript. A few bootcamps that teach these languages include:

Example: Cori found a job as a Front-End Developer after The Iron Yard


Junior Developer

Related Titles: Associate Developer
Average Salary for Junior Developer- $66,777

A Junior developer has little to no experience in the field, generally less than two years. The developer may need a lot of guidance, work on more structured tasks and learn new languages and/or frameworks on the job. For some insight into how a junior developer role might differ from that of a Senior Developer, Developer or Apprentice, check out this blog post by a Flatiron School alumni and junior developer and this one by a Thinkful alumni and junior developer.

Junior developers can learn a variety of technologies, from Java for Android to JavaScript and the MEAN stack. The following are a few bootcamps that prepare individuals for a junior developer role:

Example: Matthew found a Junior Developer role after DigitalCrafts


Full Stack Developer

Related Titles: JavaScript Developer, MEAN Stack Developer
Average Salary for Full-Stack Developer - $110,700

Traditionally, the role of a Full stack developers requires in-depth knowledge of front and back end development, servers, networks, UX/UI and project management. However, with the advent of new frameworks and the popularity of mobile, many consider these proficiencies a necessary essential. Rather than coding, most full stack developers have responsibility for leading the team and managing projects.

Full stack developers often focus on a key, back-end technology, such as Ruby or Python, PHP or JavaScript. The most popular stacks include LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP/Python/Perl) and MEAN (MongoDB, ExpressJS, AngularJS and Node.js). A few bootcamps that prepare individuals for a career as a full-stack developer include:

Example: Warren is a Full-Stack Developer after Startup Institute


Teacher Assistant

Related Titles: Mentor, Teaching Fellow, Assistant Instructor, Teacher
Average Salary for Teacher Assistant - $47,081

Teacher Assistants have become highly sought after components to coding bootcamp programs. In some cases, teaching assistants teach courses and serve as instructors of smaller components of the bootcamp course. In other cases, teaching assistants aren’t actual instructors, but serve as a resource and answer questions during the project components of the day.

Teaching assistants are needed in all types of bootcamps and settings including data science and immersive web development programs that teach HTML, CSS, Ruby and JavaScript. You have a better chance of being hired as a teaching assistant at the bootcamp you attended. While not all bootcamps hire former students, here are a few that do:

Example: Pedro became a Teacher Assitant after graduating from General Assembly



Related Titles: Apprentice, Fellow
Average Salary for Engineering Intern - $40,800

Intern duties vary by company and coding language, but it’s safe to say that as a software development intern you won’t be getting coffee! Interns are placed on a job to learn, and for that reason are often placed with an internal mentor who you meet with regularly to answer questions. More forward-thinking companies design apprenticeship programs- check out, the professional development program from Ruby on Rails powerhouse Thoughtbot. Dave Hoover, a co-founder of Dev Bootcamp and author of Apprenticeship Patterns talked to us extensively about his love of apprentice programs: “The cool thing about these apprenticeship programs is that the companies really invest in the apprentices, and because of this, the apprentices succeed well over 90% of the time. It’s not like they take on 10 people at once and 2 survive.”

As with a junior developer, interns are often given small, structured tasks to work on independently. Depending on the company structure, an intern might receive more on-the-job training than a junior developer. However, interns are certainly expected to contribute to the team and produce code.

You could land an internship or apprenticeship in any coding language- from Ruby on Rails to iOS! Many bootcamps coordinate internships with hiring partners either as part of the curriculum or as a post-bootcamp segway into the work world. A few bootcamps that include internships or apprenticeships in the program include:

Example: Jenny landed an internship after Learn Academy
