Hire Full Stack Developer with Upstack

Developers play an extremely important role in building a website, and your website plays an extremely important role in building your business. So, you definitely need to have a strong and efficient team of developers ready to help you along the way. But just what type of developers do you need? And what are the different types that are out there? Once you might be wondering about is just what is a full stack developer?

The Basics of a Full Stack Developer

If you’ve ever heard of a frontend developer or a backend developer (or both) you’re already partway to understanding just what a full stack developer is. That’s because the full stack developer is kind of like both of those other two developers rolled into one. They’re able to do the work of either of these developers, which makes them invaluable on your team.

The Full-Stack Developer Works on:

  • Web design
  • Coding
  • Security and best practices
  • User experience
  • Programming

Diving into Full Stack Development

When you look at these different skills, you can see that they actually represent the main skills of both a backend developer and a frontend developer. For example, programming and security are commonly backend development work, but a full stack developer can be responsible for both. Web design, coding, and user experience are typically frontend development work, but a full-stack developer can do these as well.


Programming usually takes place behind the scenes but involves languages like RubyPHP, and Python. For a full stack developer, it’s important to have a good understanding of at least the basics of these languages so you can build the background of the website or at least keep it up and running if there’s a full backend programmer who creates it in the first place.


The security aspects of development are extremely important because if something gets into your website and is able to cause problems it could be damaging for your business and your users. This is why a full-stack developer needs to understand not only the basics of security but the best practices as well, so they can make sure that your website is up to the standards of the average website.

Web Design

Making your website look good is extremely important and it’s what most people are going to notice when they first see your page. It’s what people are going to judge your company based on. So, you want someone who can take care of making sure the entire website looks good. This is typically a frontend aspect, but a full stack developer would be able to work on the design elements as well, or at least update them along the way.


This is another aspect that’s primarily based on the frontend developer role. It usually uses languages such as HTMLCSS, or JavaScript and goes into the process of making sure that the website looks good for any potential users. You want your full-stack developer to have a good understanding of coding languages so that they can update things on your website along the way to keep up with any changes you want to make.

User Experience

The user experience is the most important aspect of your website. Without a positive user experience, your users aren’t going to stick around. They’ll look for someone else that can give them the same or better information in an easier-to-use format. So, you need a full-stack programmer that can capitalize on the user experience and make sure it’s as positive as possible.

Is It Better to Have a Full Stack programmer?

Some people will say that it’s a good idea to have a full stack developer instead of two separate developers from frontend and backend. Others will say that it’s better to have a frontend and backend developer instead of a full stack developer. The truth is, it’s going to depend on a number of factors.

First, do you have enough money to hire both a frontend and backend developer? If your business is just starting out you may need to focus your attention on a full stack developer because they can do it all, but they generally don’t do it all as well as individual frontend and backend developers. That means you can save a little money going with this type of professional instead of two more advanced ones.

You’ll want to think about just what you want your developer to do as well. If you’re starting from scratch and you want high-end everything you may need to hire a backend developer and a frontend developer to get you started but you may be able to use a full stack developer once that’s done. That way, you can save a little as you’re working through updates and other things your full-stack developer should be comfortable with.

For those who already have a foundation to build on or who don’t want to get as specific or advanced, a full-stack developer may be able to do everything you need. Or, if you’re willing to pay more for a full stack developer who actually does have all the skills you may be able to hire just one person, which makes the communication and updates a little easier along the way.

What You Need to Know

Overall, there are good reasons to hire a frontend and backend developer. There are also good reasons to hire a full-stack developer. It’s going to be entirely up to you what works out best for your needs and even what those needs are. Take a look at who you can find if you go with either option and just what you want to do with your website. These factors will help you decide if you’re better off in one direction or another. Or maybe it’s going to be entirely up to your personal preference.

How Much does a Full Stack Developer Make?

Are you looking into a career change? Or maybe you’ve already started out in a career as a full-stack developer and want to know what the outlook is for you. Or perhaps you’re looking to change from a front-end or back-end developer to a full-stack. Well, if you’re looking for information about how much money you can make you’re in the right place.

How much does a Full Stack Developer typically make?

So, if you’re looking to hire one person that can take on these types of tasks you’re likely going to want to know what to pay them, right? Well, hiring a single full stack developer can save you a bit of money over hiring a front end and a back end developer, but you are going to pay for the fact that they are able to do so much.

A full-stack developer could make an average of $75,000 per year, though this will depend on a number of different factors. In fact, based on their skills and experience, as well as just where your business operates, they could make as little as $46,000 or as much as $114,000.

The important thing is to look at what full-stack programmers are making in your area and at companies similar to yours. Also, make sure that you look at things like the specific skills and capabilities of the developer that you’re going to hire. You want someone who will be able to take care of the tasks that you need them to do but you don’t necessarily want to pay for someone who is overqualified for your position.

Entry-level full-stack developers could make as much as $85,000 on average within the country. Senior full-stack developers, on the other hand, could get upwards of that $114,000. And which level you want to go with is going to depend on your business and just what you want to accomplish within the business.

Choosing the right full stack programmer

Cost is going to be a factor in choosing someone for this position within your business, but it shouldn’t be the only consideration. After all, you want someone who is going to get the job done and help you reduce the cost of having two developers on the payroll but you also want someone who is going to get the work done.

Look at the different types of tasks that are generally needed by developers within your business. Have you hired developers before either as a permanent or temporary position? If you have then you’re going to want to think about what they did for you before and then think about what other tasks you might need them to do in the future.

Hiring a full stack programmer is different from hiring a front-end or back-end developer because not all of them are skilled in the more intricate areas that your other developers are. For example, an entry-level full stack developer will likely not be able to do more extensive or detailed tasks for a front-end developer. You may still have to hire someone on a temporary basis to take care of these details.

Consider how much you could save by hiring a single, senior full-stack programmers who has more extensive skills in both the front and back ends. Will this be a good investment for you? Or will you find yourself spending a lot more on their salary than you actually need? Overall, the choice to hire full stack developer over a front-end and back-end developer is going to be up to you. But you definitely want to make sure that you’re looking at all of the pros and cons of each side before you jump in. And definitely consider the cost involved.
