Yes, web development is a good career. Mondo’s annual Tech and Digital Marketing Salary guide found “Web Developer” was the most in-demand job title in tech and one of its top-paying jobs. And, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor, the job market for Web Developers is expected to grow 15 percent by 2026.

Why Is Web Development a Good Career?

North America is currently facing a shortage of skilled tech talent and few positions are in hotter demand than Web Developers. There is also no sign demand will wane. The expansion of e-commerce and an ever-increasing reliance on mobile search will only create further need for talented Developers.

According to Stack Overflow, 83 percent of professional Web Developers in the United States are employed full-time, with another 10 percent working on a freelance basis or part-time. The same survey found that 73 percent of respondents reported positive job satisfaction, and the U.S. News and World Report ranked Software and Web Developers as one of the eight best overall tech jobs in its 2018 report. A healthy salary doesn’t hurt on that front. Web Developers make anywhere between $78,000 (Indeed) and $88,000 (Glassdoor) a year, with an easy pathway to more senior positions.

In addition, Developers have the choice of working mostly independently, on a team of Developers, or working cross-functionally between design and product teams. There’s also flexibility on the work/life balance front, as Developers can essentially work anywhere that has an internet connection.

Being a Web Developer is not without its challenges, however, as the field involves continuous learning, problem solving, and critical thinking. Technology changes quickly, which means Developers have to stay on top of the new languages, tools, and trends.
