Web developers are hard to find.
In the United States, nearly half of all jobs are open to software engineers.
But there are few jobs that demand the kind of experience and skillset needed to build web applications.
This week, Fox News spoke to three highly sought-after web developers in the United Kingdom who all said they needed to be on the web developer list.
The list is growing and more applicants are getting in.
A new website, “Start Your Web Developer Job List,” is making it easier for people to see the best web developers for their career.
The site includes an interactive, personalized ranking, where you can compare your resume to the top candidates and view their recent work.
You can also filter jobs by industry, geographic location, and gender.
The job list is an interesting insight into what a growing number of companies are doing to attract the best candidates for web developers.
You’ll also find a list of the top companies in the UK that are hiring.
We’ve rounded up the top web developers who we think you’ll like.
Jason Pye, CEO and founder of the London-based start-up, has been building websites for nearly 20 years.
He says the company’s growth has been fueled by the web’s growth and accessibility.
“There’s a lot of interest around the Web and accessibility, and we’ve had a lot more interest in web developers than we’ve ever had in other industries,” Pye says.
He said that’s led to more hiring of people with that kind of skill set, and a rising demand for web devs.
Pye also believes that the Web is a good place for people with an IT background, and believes this trend will continue as technology evolves.
Pyes job is not a traditional IT job.
“I’ve never had an IT job before, I’ve been working in the tech sector for over 30 years,” he says.
Pys job is also not a management position, which is not unusual in the IT industry.
“We’re not in a management industry where we’re going to have a large amount of senior managers, which will give us a big amount of flexibility,” Pys says.
“You can make a decision as to how much of your workload should be in front of you.”
Pye is looking to hire up to five developers for his new start-ups company.
The company has two employees and Pys hopes to have another four in the pipeline by the end of the year.
The most important skill that a web dev has, according to Pys, is the ability to “get the design done.”
Pys said the majority of his clients are looking for a web design expert who can work from the ground up.
The skillset he’s looking for is the type that will allow him to build apps that have a visual and interactivity.
The top web developer candidates also have to be able to communicate well and be able solve problems on a personal level.
“They have to understand that you don’t just do it for the money, you’re going through the process of building something, and that it has to be fun,” Pies says.
Jason Schofield, CEO of the start-off company, has more than 20 years experience in the software industry.
He has also been building web applications for clients in the past.
He’s been working on the site since June.
Schofards job is to help clients get more people to start working in web development.
His company has been hiring web developers, including a new employee, for a year now.
“The last five months have been a bit of a rollercoaster,” Schofords says.
But he says he’s made good progress.
“Last year, we had one engineer who worked on our website.
This year we’ve brought in three new engineers and that’s just the tip of the iceberg,” SchoFords says, noting that the company is hiring developers in a variety of disciplines.
SchoFs job is being a part of a fast-growing web company.
Pays attention to detail, Pys notes.
“It’s an industry where people have been hiring people with experience and it’s exciting to be a part in a fast growing company,” Schohs says.
