Everyone knows a junior software developer job isn’t exactly the playboy lifestyle. You won’t be flying around the world in private jets, solving mysteries and walking away from explosions in slow-motion. You will however set a solid base for your future, giving you a steady foundation upon which to build. And who knows, from these humble beginnings you may just turn out to be a villain in a James Bond movie.

First off, a software developer job is about fixing problems. A JUNIOR software developer job is about fixing minor problems. Basic coding and testing programs is a big part of the day. It might not sound like much, but this basic coding will set lay the groundwork for everything else you do in your career. Remember, you have to walk before you can run. And you have to crawl before you can walk.

Once you’ve proven you can crawl, then more opportunities will open up for you. You’ll no longer be a junior software developer, and move up to actual software developer. If that doesn’t get the ladies going nothing will. This means you’ll be able to create code of your own, and this is when you can plan to take over the world and fight James Bond. A software developer job at this stage includes duties and skills such as:

  • Writing specific software coding that are required by the blueprints and development plans.
  • Creating scripts, testing transactions and testing cases. These tests are conducted to find errors in programs and a good software developer will be able to fix the code themselves.
  • Being able to write documentation which describes the operating and installation procedures.
  • Participating in code reviews and learn from given designs.

A junior software developer job isn’t just about learning, it’s about selling yourself. Show what you can do to your employers and potential clients. Most universities encourage their students to intern with a software engineering company in order to get the experience, knowledge and to make contacts required to work in the world of IT.

To be considered for a junior software developer job, you need to have at least a basic knowledge of the main types of coding languages, such as HTML, Javascript and C#. The IT industry is also the fastest changing in the world, and so anyone who is serious about becoming a software developer needs to be up to date with the current trends and technology.

A junior software developer job contains step by step processes that include back-end coding development, layout, design, testing and implementation. In addition is the testing and fixing of problems found in the code of senior developers.  It is also the responsibility in a junior software developer job to create and develop programs to maintain certain software applications. These are used to find bugs and speed up the fixing of problems.

A junior software developer job is actually quite challenging, and as an individual, you must have great determination and drive to push ahead. When it comes to finding a job, those with intern experience stand head and shoulders above everyone else, and will have the common sense to know that, once you capture James Bond, don’t leave him in a room to a slow death. He’ll probably escape. Just shoot him.
