We are in a very strong moment of transition towards almost global digitization. With this, a lot of IT profiles or technological profiles have been born that have been earning an increasingly essential position in companies.

These are profiles that help companies adapt to the new technological era, one in which the digital surpasses the physical and in what is possible through a screen. And that is where these profiles must intervene. Below you will find a list of 4 tech profiles that cannot be missing in your computer if you want to carry out a digital transformation in conditions.

1. IT Project Manager

As its name indicates, it is responsible for managing projects from the beginning (approach) to the end (execution), but with the focus on the IT branch of the company. From designing the planning to its own implementation, all critical points of the strategy will be under the responsibility and supervision of the IT Project Manager. We could summarize its functions in the following 5 points:
  1. Define the project
  2. Preparation of the briefing and planning
  3. Plan execution
  4. Presentation and implementation
  5. Project monitoring
In addition to the functions, the responsibilities of the position must also be clear, responsibilities that are aimed at fulfilling the functions:
  1. Meet deadlines
  2. Managing the resources allocated to the project
  3. Motivate the work team
  4. Resolve project problems or internal conflicts
Being able to run an IT project not only requires the knowledge of the Hardware and Software that will be used, but it is also necessary to have certain management skills and equipment management, as well as good analytical capacity and resilience to cope with possible unforeseen events. IT projects are undoubtedly having an enormous importance nowadays, so an IT Project Manager is one of the IT profiles that should not be missing in your team.

2. Front End Developer

A Front End Developer is the IT profile responsible for bringing to the screen the static design of your web or app, programming your browser. In other words, it translates all previous design definitions into semantic HTML code.

We could summarize its functions in the following points:

  1. Create HTML and CSS code to shape web/app design
  2. Structure the content
  3. Give it good accessibility
  4. Implement fonts, templates, elements and interactivities
  5. Edit the web/app programming
  6. Make a responsive design
  7. Improve both UI and UX
  8. Connect the web/app with external services via APIs

Therefore, the Front End must have one of the most complete IT profiles in terms of programming. Its value is in:

  1. Knowledge of HTML and CSS
  2. Knowledge of JavaScript
  3. Knowledge of the CMS
  4. Creativity
  5. Design knowledge
  6. Web design and Back End skills

With this knowledge, the Front End must be able to design or shape the design of a website or app providing it with a low load time, a code that does not become obsolete over time and that is responsive (which works on all devices and browsers).

3. Back end Developer

While the Front End takes care of everything that concerns the user, the Back End is the IT profile in charge of developing what concerns the servers. In this case we are not talking about design or visual aspects, but about everything that is behind a website and that allows its correct functioning. The functions of a Back End can be the following:
  1. Participate in the entire app/web lifecycle
  2. Write clean code to develop apps/websites
  3. Debug applications
  4. Optimize performance
  5. Enhance legacy applications with the latest technologies
  6. Collaborate closely with Front End developers
  7. Create reusable code for future use
And, for all this, it is necessary to have diverse knowledge related to programming languages, databases, web development…
  1. Web development knowledge, from design to deployment
  2. Languages Java, Ruby, PHP, Python, ASP.NET, Node.js…
  3. Knowledge of the CMS
  4. Knowing the Front End language
  5. Analytic ability

4. Full Stack Developer

The developer Full Stack, of the IT profiles we have presented, is the one with the most varied knowledge in terms of programming languages, capable of performing all kinds of computer functions. We could say that it is the most complete programming profile, since it includes both the Front and the Back End.

Thus, its functions can be all that a Front End and a Back End must manage. The Full Stack is an all-terrain professional, able to design and develop a web application, also taking into account the UX and UI.

The knowledge required of a Full Stack is as follows:

  1. Front End Languages
  2. Back End Languages
  3. Storage and database
  4. Knowledge in web architecture
  5. Know how to work with Git
  6. Knowledge of HTTP Protocols

As you can imagine, the Full Stack is a very complete IT profile, which requires a lot of training, a lot of qualification and a lot of experience in the sector. It is not that he has general knowledge, but that he has very specific and specialized knowledge in everything that concerns web development.
