Discussion on: Being A Full Stack Web Dev is Kinda Crazy

I think you strike a really good point here in terms of what people are really looking for.

I believe it all comes down to the tools at hand and what the team needs. A smaller company could need a full stack dev similar to what I described. They help a bit with everything.

In your case, the more applicable description would be the HTML, CSS and JS generalist that figures out other stuff as needed. Since there's usually teams in place to handle the specific stack elements already.

I feel like the market is big enough at this point that you could choose either "style" mentioned, or something in-between, and find a job somewhere. Whether or not style A pays better than style B for the work needed is a different story I guess.
