It might be a stupid question, but:
Do the full-stack devs of you actually have that function in the job contract or does it just say "(junior/senior) software developer"?

Mine says just "Software Developer" and in my opinion it sounds just too generic and undervalued for what I'm actually doing...

    depends, I am currently hired as a "developer"

    Contract has "Software Engineer" but since I control, maintain and am 100% responsible for the entire stack, code and ongoing maintenance of every system I look after, full stack it is.

    I don't have support unless I break a few arms, I don't have anyone senior to me for what I do to turn to, so what would you call me?

    I'm also a software engineer, but that's more like an outside/consultant title.

    @PonySlaystation this could work.

    I saw only self-named Senior developers. It looks cool right...

    I started off as a jr dev. A single dev in the project [as my mentor left it after a few months]

    At work I changed the name of the position from Web developer to "Full Stack Developer/Programmer" and there is a reason for the slash...... they previously screwed my guys into a lower pay grade because of what the fucking idiots that evaluated our positions(we have a state job, so shit gets evaluated all the time) did not consider that a developer and a programmer are interchangeable names for the position.

    OAN when one of my devs asked me why I did not put "Software Engineer" I mentioned that such name would normally imply or require a bachelors degree....which they don't have lolololololol

    @AleCx04 don't tell my company that, I'll get a demotion for not having a degree 😂

    I don't like my job title. It has the word "consultant" in it. Lol

    Mine says Technical Consultant.
    Makes it weird sometimes.

    Would you prefer "Person who does stuff"?

    My position should be called company holder.

    If I got sick for one single day the company broke. And it's not joke, the only 1 day off I take because of sickness our, "DevOps" drop the production database.

    My position is also Software Developer, but I mostly do frontend development, a bit of CI/CD and a few weekly hours of useless meetings.

    Full stack is a term used more in recruitment circles rather than organisations and job titles.

    I have no title. Actualy a can do many things. So you can call me a bitch for everything.

    @PonySlaystation Software Master would be ok though.

    @C0D4 Is that still true for someone that's 20 and until less than 2 years ago didn't know the difference between Java and JavaScript?

    @c3r38r170 I can't see why not, if that's what your job entails.

    There's just the whole jnr/senior issue after that.
