REQUIREMENTS ANALYST

The requirements analyst will be the first web team member you’ll need to communicate with. An analyst takes your product ideas and turns them into clear technical specifications. In other words, the requirements analyst’s job is to understand what you want your project to look like and then to communicate this information to the rest of the web development team.
  • Elicit requirements
  • Analyze requirements
  • Document requirements
No matter what kind of project you’re developing, be it a CRM tool for your hardware installation company or a piece of marketing management software, the first question a requirements analyst asks is always “What goals do you want to achieve with your project?” An analyst first and foremost needs to understand your business needs. But that’s not all.

UX / UI / WEB DESIGNERS

You’ll get familiar with at least two roles of the designer. Most web development teams actually include just one designer who works on both the user experience and the user interface design.
Let’s see what UX designers are responsible for:
  • Create information architecture (i.e decide how information is organized and presented to the user)
  • Develop wireframes (product blueprints that show the web application’s structure)
  • Create prototypes for user testing
Designing the user interface is different from developing the user experience. While the UX designer focuses on functionality and user interactions, the UI designer makes everything look good – that’s why this role is introduced to web development teams.

WEB DEVELOPERS

Now that we know who designs website prototypes and makes them look good, we need to mention the developers who bring the design to life in code.
In most web development teams, developers know enough technologies to write both client-side and server-side code. Full-stack web developers know at minimum HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (JS) for client-side development, and one of several backend programming languages – Ruby, PHP, and Python, to name a few. We’ve mentioned only programming languages, but web developers also use a plethora of frameworks and preprocessors built on those languages to increase the speed of development.
But what if your project grows? To improve the team’s performance, the duties of full-stack web developers are divided among two or more specialized developers.
First, there are HTML and CSS developers. They turn product visuals into code. Keep in mind that HTML and CSS developers don’t develop functionality! They only bring the UI designer’s work to life in code.
Second, there are front-end web developers. These are the people who actually implement functionality – but only for the front end. When you click a button on a website or submit information through a contact form, you’re interacting with the website thanks to JavaScript. Front-end developers make sure that those buttons and forms – the web application’s interface – function correctly.

QUALITY ASSURANCE SPECIALISTS

Quality Assurance (QA) engineers are impartial guards of product quality. As soon as web developers bring new features to an application, QA engineers look high and low for issues with business logic or design.
QA engineers perform acceptance testing to guarantee that your product works according to the business requirements. They prepare testing strategies, develop test plans and test cases, execute those tests, and track bugs. When automation tests fail, they write bug reports and later double-check that web developers have successfully fixed all issues.
QA engineers also prepare testing environments – most notably, a development server – to test your application for compatibility with various browsers and hardware platforms.
Here’s a list of the most important responsibilities of a QA engineer:
  • Write tests
  • Test software quality
  • Performing regression and negative tests
  • Test the user interface and app compatibility with various browsers
