Which type of designer do you need?

Developers are split into two camps: frontend and backend developers. The type of web developer you’ll need depends on the function of your project.

Backend developers

Back-end developers create elements like databases to hold information entered in the product, or algorithms that operate while pages load, using back-end programming languages and frameworks such as PHP, Python and Ruby on Rails.

The information entered in the project submission form on our site is stored in a database, built by a backend developer.

All that sweet, sweet, information is stored in a database, created by a back-end developer.
Back-end developers can build databases to store that sweet, sweet information.

Frontend developers

Using languages like HTML, CSS and JavaScript, frontend developers create what we see and interact with online. Functions like tap gestures, web animations, and pop ups are examples of what frontend developers can build.

The rotating text shows what front-end code can create.

Not sure which type of developer you need? No sweat. We’ll work with you to determine if you need a backend, frontend, or full-stack developer. Then, we’ll find the perfect fit for your project.
