LinkedIn places "Full-stack engineer" (another term for full stack developer), at the fourth spot in their emerging jobs report. “The rapid pace of change in technology has made full-stack developers an asset to any company.” The top industries hiring for this type of talent include computer software, IT and services, Internet, financial services, and higher education.
In this short article, we aim to explore a few specific reasons that make full-stack web developers highly in demand.
Before we get into the thick of things, let's take a minute to understand...
Intrinsically, full stack web developers bring more value to the development team. That's the main reason for their increased demand. Rishabh Kaul, co-founder of London-based HR solutions company puts it nicely, "Full stack developers find more relevance in end-to-end product development startups or companies with smaller teams. Full stack developers in the product space are paid two times more in comparison to the ITES sector."
You can throw any problem at a full-stack developer and they will eagerly dive into it to create elegant solutions. This characteristic is a result of the hunger to constantly learn and master new technologies. Atishe Chordia, founder of doodleblue Innovations said, "“We look for a developer to have the ability to solve problems—any problem. This means they can learn new technologies quickly and adapt to the fast-changing technology landscape,”. For their contributions, full stack developers reap rich financial rewards. Indeed, they are one of the highest paid job profiles.
Startups and SMEs usually have limited funding. They have to spend each dollar or rupee with utmost deliberation. Full stack developers provide more value for their limited expense pool. Naturally, entrepreneurs and SMEs prefer the highly skilled full stack developers. In the same vein, entrepreneurs looking to launch their ideas to the MVP stage, hiring a full stack web developer will be the most prudent choice.
Companies no more pride in building large teams. They instead prefer small teams that can deliver more. Full stack developers fit the bill perfectly. They can juggle multiple projects, work on any aspect of the software and therefore, bring about greater productivity. Smaller teams also have other advantages: less office politics, well-knit teams, and less communication problems. They definitely improve the revenue per employee, which directly correlates with profits.
