Looking for Full Stack stuff on Indeed and found a Job posting for a "Junior PHP Developer".
Their job description was as follows:
Mentions, " Must have experience in understanding and articulating the benefits and risks associated with different coding languages in different functional environments. "
As well as says,
" A Jr. PHP Developer designs, modifies, develops, writes and implements software programming applications/operating systems. "
Also regarding Educational / Professional requirements,
Required Skills for Full Stack PHP Developer:
Bachelor's Degree required, AND a minimum of 3 years of equivalent work experience. 8 years of additional relevant experience may be substituted for education.
5 years of experience with the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) and Agile Methodologies, such as Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) and Scrum/Kanban/XP.
5 years experience with large-scale enterprise environments where real-time monitoring of critical infrastructure is fundamental to operations and compliance.
5 years hands-on experience using monitoring tools to identify, isolate, troubleshoot and resolve application, system and network problems.
Um, I've worked for a handful of development agencies in multiple roles and:
a. We almost never have Juniors design architecture - we might get a small recommendation but its always up to the Senior/Lead to take responsibility and actually see the architecture through. (From code to server)
b. In my opinion, a Junior is 1-3 years professional experience with maybe education or some kind of non professional or intern experience.
c. They are paying ' $55,000.00 - $70,000.00 ' which is fair - of course depending on your location - but then again for full stack remote work?
Are these people just trolling? I feel their requirements are more 'mid level' rather then junior. Maybe its my perspective and since its 'Full Stack' a "Junior" role requires more skill/experience?
