Career opportunities:

  • PHP Programmer
    PHP Programmers create and implement a myriad of websites and web applications using technologies and languages such as PHP, JavaScript, MySQL, HTML5 and CSS3. Most PHP Programmers specialise at the back-end which often requires a lot of coding and testing.
  • Database Administrator
    Database Administrators are responsible for ensuring data integrity in a database. Other typical responsibilities of this role include but are not limited to data backup, web security, bug fixing and relentless testing.
  • Front-end Web Developer
    Front-end Web Developers are more concerned with the look and feel of a website and frequently use frameworks such as Bootstrap, Sass and Less to create websites quickly. Sometimes Front-end Web Developers use blogging tools like WordPress to make websites that are relatively easy to maintain.
  • Web Application Developer
    Web Application Developers need to know how to code well at the front-end and the back-end, which usually starts with the web design phase, which will be followed by an intensive round of coding and testing. Languages and technologies may include but are not limited to Ajax, JavaScript/jQuery, PHP, HTML5, CSS3 and the MySQL database.
  • Project Manager
    Project Managers need to keep their human resources motivated whilst managing other resources such as time and budget at the same time. Project Managers frequently host progress update meetings with their teams to ensure that the project remains on track and the objectives will be met in a timely manner.
