Backend Engineer Jobs in New York

Find Backend Engineer Jobs in the New York City Area

Backend Engineers are the skilled computer programmers who are responsible for the creation of every component that powers the server-side of a website, including the server, database and application. These engineers build and manage the technology that comes together to form the backend, which in turn powers the frontend, client-side of a website, or what users interact with. Backend Engineers use a variety of server-side languages, tools, frameworks, version control software and development and deployment systems to make the backend of a website or application function well and in perfect harmony with the frontend. In addition to understanding and using several web technologies, Backend Engineers also must collaborate with other engineers and developers, so good communication is key. Professionals in this field often have a degree in computer science, computer programming, or a related field. It is a role that is likely to remain in demand, as the need for a properly functioning backend of a website that harmonizes with the client-facing frontend is necessary in most companies across all sectors.
