What this job is about

Once you’ve secured your footing as a Junior Developer, becoming an Intermediate Developer is a natural next step. Intermediate Developers are ready to strike it out on their own and try some solo projects. Don’t worry–Senior Developers are still there to answer questions and lend a hand, but in general, Intermediate Developers are secure enough in their skills and excited to learn new tech that they don’t need the support a Junior Developer does. Intermediate Developers have a little more experience and can earn between $60K and $80K as they rise through the ranks.
