Discussion on: Junior Developer title?

In my area-- Developer "job titles" are usually rated Developer I, II, III then goes onto architect, tech lead, etc. I being new, III being senior.

So personally, my job titles on my resume/CV have always been "_____ Developer".
People argue about what junior and senior actually mean. For instance, in mobile senior can genuinely means 2-3 years experience if you're working in the right technology. But, for other areas, it means 20+ years. Ya know?

My advice would be to keep it generic... if they want to know your familiarity with technology they can ask -- If they want to know how many years you've been in the technology they can come up with that through looking at your resume. There's no need to mark yourself as a junior. :)
