Hello Rob! What main differences do you see between being a UI developer vs Front End Developer? It is in my understanding that Front end development is broader than UI dev. What title sounds and work better for job seeking purposes?

Howdy, to me, there is very little difference it’s just a bunch of titles.

I’ve seen UI used more in the title more recently and I really like the term as it feels a little more appropriate; after all it’s mainly the user interface that you’re dealing with.

For job seeking purposes I suppose it depends on what you’re looking for. The majority of jobs are still posted with ‘front end’ in there so I’d always look for that. However, there are a lot more technology-specific role titles creeping in too, so you can look out for ‘React developer’ or ‘Node js developer’.
