Web Software Architecture and Engineering – Life on the Bleeding Edge

ColdFusion Roles

I’m working on some articles covering the HR (Human Resource/Hiring) aspect of working with ColdFusion Developers. So far I have four key roles. Can anyone think of anything different?

  • ColdFusion Developer – Baseline Web Developer with ColdFusion. 5 years of experience.
  • Sr. ColdFusion Developer – Senior Web Developer with expertise in ColdFusion and knowledge of OO, Frameworks, Design Patterns (etc). 5+ years of experience.
  • ColdFusion Architect – Senior Web Developer with Architecture expertise and supervisory/managerial experience. Knowledge of end to end development life cycle processes. 8+ years of experience.
  • ColdFusion Server Administrator – Baseline Web Developer (or above) with experience administrating, tuning, and performance testing ColdFusion servers. 

Are these roles too generic? Is there something I am missing? Should RIA be a part of this? Let me know.

  1. I think this is great. Thank you for doing this. I’ve really been thinking about the different roles other than just typical “developer” or “senior developer” lately. This helps.

    You might want to start out with “Jr. ColdFusion Developer – Entry-level programming skills. One year or less of experience.”

    You might also want to include (taken from Wikipedia and adapted) “ColdFusion Software Analyst – Studies the software application domain and prepares the software requirements and specification (Software Requirements Specification) document. The seam between the software users and the software developers.
