When I applied for my job, it was for a PHP/MySQL Developer. When I signed my contract for it, it was PHP/Apex Developer (Apex being the language used in Salesforce). My colleagues found out a little while later I was good with .NET and just became a Developer.

Skip forward a few years, I became an Account Manager/Developer and a year after that, Lead .NET Developer.

The irony of my role is that while I do a lot of .NET development, I also am still doing a lot of PHP work, I do frontend and backend development, database design and I help manage our internal infrastructure.

I try and get involved with lots of business decisions too and I joke that my role should actually be Chief Operating Office.
