Tech teach-in: What exactly is a full stack engineer?
Most of the in-demand jobs for 2020 are technology-based, which makes a lot of sense given how digitally-focused the world is becoming. Some of them you may have heard of, but others may be less familiar.
One less well-known emerging role is a full stack engineer (also referred to as a full stack developer). Are they better than a half stack engineer and what exactly are they stacking?
To shed some light on the title, a full stack engineer is a prized asset as they can run a project from start to finish. They have experience of front-end web development and also software development skills.
LinkedIn describe them as ‘’the swiss army knife of tech roles’’ who remain in incredibly hot demand. Their skills are also versatile and full stack engineers can work across multiple industries.
