Fediverse, I need your help !
My manager aks me to define my job, with a name and I'm stuck at "I need time to think about it". My actual job name is "web developer", but it needs to be (much) more precise. "Frontend dev" is a bit narrow, "fullstack" seems to be a bullshit joke.
I do PHP backend dev, JS dev, CI/CD, install and configure softwares on Linux servers, do some automation scripts, use GIT…
Any idea ? Boost appreciated.
@Sp3r4z I mean, that's as full stack as it gets without any SQL involved.. Perhaps just web engineer?
@russdpale I forgot SQL, of course I also do that… It's obviously obvious.
So "fullstack" seems to be relevant, for you?
@Sp3r4z it could be, but web engineer almost seems more appropriate, you are most certainly doing dev and devops at the same time. Im a full stack dev and I don't touch servers or integration stuff, our devops (support) group does that.
@devnull But your also say "automation + scripting" is for sysadmins, but it's a part of my own job in fact. Maybe because I'm the only one (dev role in my company) able to manage GNU/Linux stuff… I don't really need someone to install OS, libraries and softwares on it… I don't need someone to (bash) script things… Logs are familiar to me… it's just part of my "job routine".
I can't even think asking someone for rsync things or why my code is 500 the server…
Your manager's question is weird though… I'm not sure what he wants/what's the point (if there's one)
I don't know your exact job, but from I understand, web dev + sysadmin seems to be a correct way to describe it. And since it's a mix of two different job, there isn't any "single" job title to describe both.
@devnull It's a weird question, but it's to fit the job title to what I effectively do, because it's not just "do code", you know. I don't think there is any other point, in fact.
That's exactly what I thought "not really possible to get a perfect box for my job", it's as you said a culture, not a real job (as devops).
