In demand: Node.JS developers

Node.JS is one of the most widely used technologies powering the modern web. A powerful development framework that spans the entire tech stack while only technically requiring one language, Node.JS makes a great specialization or additional competency for tech-minded individuals. As a Node.JS developer, the doors of many tech organizations are open to you, and you will always find that exciting web development projects await.

Node.JS developer jobs have the Node framework in common, but in most other cases they are not created equal. There are many different specializations and avenues for career growth available for a junior Node.JS developer with the right skill set and experience. For example, some developers opt to focus on particular frameworks or libraries that are widely used in Node based projects — there are many Angular JS jobs and React Node developer jobs that fall into this category. UI design minded Node developers can also make their mark working in front-end development!

Why should I become a Node.JS developer?

Becoming a Node.JS developer puts you at the forefront of modern application development. Since Node is so commonly used, Node.JS engineers tend to have many different options in terms of career direction. Where will you specialize?

Frontend Node.JS Developers

On the front-end, Node.JS developers get to help integrate key user interface (UI) elements into web applications. This lets them flex their creative skills as well as understand how and why users request certain optimizations and functionality tweaks.

Backend Node.JS Developers

Node.JS backend developers are concerned with things like databases, speed, and optimization. After all, applications aren’t worth much to us if they can’t locate and serve the data we need from them, so these professionals make sure everything behind the scenes is running smoothly.

What skills do you need to become a Node.JS developer?

  • JavaScript Fluency

    Although Node.JS is, famously, not a programming language (it’s a JavaScript-based development platform), there’s no getting around this one — you must be highly, highly familiar with JavaScript to be successful in a Node.JS job. The fun doesn’t end there, though: You’ll want to make sure you’re also completely familiar and comfortable with JavaScript’s standard libraries and frameworks.

  • iOS programming jobs

    Other Programming Languages

    If you become a backend Node.JS developer, you’re likely to be working with exceptionally complex databases on a regular basis. You’ll find it helpful if not outright necessary to become familiar with languages commonly used on the backend, like PHP and Ruby, to be successful.

  • Database Management

    Database operations are at the heart of most modern applications. A slow or malfunctioning central database leaves users hanging, and eventually drives them away from the app entirely, so the faster that Node.JS engineers can make them, the better.

  • Version Control

    Version control helps development teams collaborate effectively when working on large software projects. Tools like git and GitHub help developers integrate new code into the codebase, track down prevalent bugs, and revert code to previous versions when needed. Using these tools must become second nature to prospective developers.

  • Collaboration and Teamwork Skills

    Tech is a team sport! Since Node based applications tend to be very complex, you’re likely to spend most of your time working as part of a larger team. The stronger everyone’s communication and problem-solving skills, the faster development will go.

What are the future prospects for Node.JS engineers?

It’s a good time to begin your career as a Node.JS engineer! Whether you’re entirely new to the tech field, or you’re an experienced developer looking to branch out into a senior Node.JS engineer role, you’ll find the space is diverse, with plenty of room for career growth and advancement. Organizations of all kinds rely on Node.JS developers to bring their web-based applications to fruition, ensuring you’ll have a steady supply of interesting projects and puzzles to ponder.

Compensation in the field remains characteristically high, with Node.JS jobs in great demand as more and more companies embrace the possibilities of web apps in serving their clientele. According to research by the United States Bureau of Labor and Statistics, the average Node.JS developer salary is in the comfortable six figures, which is quite lucrative, especially for recent graduates. As with most development jobs, demand for Node.JS ability is up much faster than demand for other types of careers, even in tech.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is Node developer a good choice of career?

    Yes! If you become a Node.JS developer, you’ll have a great, stable career with a good starting salary and strong potential for advancement. You’ll be able to learn skills that will drastically increase your future job opportunities in other fields, but with Node as entrenched as it is in modern web application development, you might find there’s no shortage of positions where you began! Individuals with lots of tech aptitude and logical problem-solving skills will find Node.JS jobs are a perfect match for their abilities.

  • What are some of the most common Node.JS developer jobs?

    Experts in Node.JS development work in all kinds of jobs, coding applications and databases that come together to form some of the most fundamental underpinnings of daily life. Don’t let job titles stress you too much, however; one company’s “cool coding ninja” is another’s “awesome rockstar developer,” but the true job differences move well beyond the lines of your email signature. Here are some of the most common Node.JS developer job titles, as well as a bit about what they each do:

    React Node Developer – React, like Node, isn’t actually a programming language. React is a JavaScript library packed with essential UI components, so aspiring Node.JS frontend developers should take note.

    • Angular Node Developer – These developers are experts in Node.JS development, of course. But to increase their particular application’s interactivity quotient, they’ve also become specialists in AngularJS, a special framework targeting single-page web application development.
    • Node.JS full stack developer – With tons of experience, these professionals are highly desired by many firms worldwide. They’re not just experts in everything JavaScript and Node.JS; “full stack” means their work spans front and backend development both.
  • What are the job responsibilities of a Node.JS developer?

    Node.JS developers help bring web-based applications to life. Using server-side scripting, they’re able to manipulate extensive databases in mere moments to deliver media a la minute. And that’s only one example of backend Node.JS developers’ job duties; frontend Node.JS developers have very different tasks and priorities. The applications that any given engineer works on will differ, but Node.JS full stack developers are generally expected to:

    • Create, update, and maintain an application’s server-side components
    • Optimize key databases for speed and reliability
    • Analyze and document Node.JS processes and database reports
    • Review and recommend improvements to essential technologies or protocols
  • What are the qualifications required to become a Node.JS developer?

    Node.JS is not a programming language, but you need plenty of technological aptitude to make the most of its capabilities. The core requirements and descriptions of Node.JS jobs differ, so the list that follows is not definitive, but will serve as a good starting point. In general, as a junior level Node.JS developer, you will need:

    • A bachelor’s or master’s degree in a STEM field
