What is a Jr Full Stack Developer?

Jr Full Stack Developers are entry-level developers that work in tech-based startups, mid to large-sized software development companies, and consultancy firms, among others.

They spend the majority of their time analysing user requirements, designing solutions, supporting the implementation of these solutions and supporting regular updates to existing applications. Jr developers typically work on a team of other developers and may get support from more senior developers. Other responsibilities commonly associated with the jr developer role include testing and finalising solutions, fixing errors, supporting security provisions in software, and communicating with internal and external stakeholders.

Given that technologies and platforms are constantly changing, a core responsibility of any full stack developer is self-learning and taking active steps in staying up to date.

Hear from Gazali

Meet Gazali, a #GenAlumni from our train-and-place Jr Full Stack Developer programme.

Having spent six years of his life on the road as a driver, Gazali was bored. Even at 53, he knew that there was a purpose behind his fascination with technology — and he was done letting it go to waste. In 2021, he courageously made a career change into tech in spite of his initial apprehensions because of his age.
