A Magento developer works to build, support and improve Magento websites.
Typically, designing and building a Magento website requires a team of Magento developers, web designers and others
to fulfill all of the skills required. A Magento developer is simply a web developer skilled with the Magento platform.
A Magento developer may work as a freelancer alone, or within a Magento agency such as Peacock Carter. Magento developers can be roughly split in to two separate skillsets themselves:
Frontend Magento developers build Magento themes and work to replicate the design a
web designer provides in to Magento – ensuring that your website looks great, and is responsive (mobile-friendly) so that it works
effectively on smartphone and tablet devices.
Backend Magento developers focus on building features for your Magento website, whether that’s via existing Magento extensions or bespoke code.
Magento developers can also become a Magento Certified Developer (MCD), Magento Certified Developer Pus (MCD+) and a Magento Certified Frontend Developer, which means they’ve passed an exam of multiple choice questions relevant to that field.
