Frontend Engineer Job Description

A frontend engineer is vital to the success of a website. The position of the frontend engineer focuses on making websites friendly and functional to its users. So, no matter how great the product offering on the website is, or how interesting the stories are, much of the utility of it depends on the users ability to navigate it. The frontend engineer makes websites user-friendly by creating rich and exciting features such as animations, text boxes, games, forums and even navigation. They often coordinate their efforts with the backend engineers who then process the data. To effectively perform their job, a frontend engineer must be able to analyze the needs of the website audience and develop design specifications for the marketing team and technical staff.

Additionally, frontend engineers develop templates and create pages and applications using various coding languages such as HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Besides knowing different coding languages, a frontend engineer must also be able to design interactions that web users will find attractive. They need to think like the end user and use this perspective in their designs. The frontend engineer is often part of a larger team that also includes other types of programmers and technical staff. Therefore, having the ability to work in a team environment is also a plus. The internet is always changing and applications require frequent updates. A frontend engineer can expect to perform ongoing testing and updating to the sites that it he/she is responsible for. Frontend engineers generally learn their skills through a college program in computer science or a related field.
