I think these companies that are seeking web developers are asking too much. A web developer isn’t someone who needs to focus on “designing” anything. They are there to insure your website back-end is functioning, upgraded and maintained. They develop new techniques, patch vulnerabilities, and code new ways for the DESIGNER to improve your website’s face.
HR should take into consideration when writing up these advertisements. Each web developer is not going to know how to write websites based on “HTML5” and “jQuery” with the addition of “CSS3.” But they will surely know how to integrate frameworks into (and code up various items) se, Wordpress for your web designer to take advantage of.
Want an awesome video solution? Your website to play a specific set of YouTube videos? Cool, a web developer could make that happen. Want it all CSS3’d and jQuery’d up for the eyes? Not cool, that’s for a web designer.
