What does Webflow Developer do in Poland?

Webflow Developer's work is mainly related to the implementation and Web development in Webflow. The person in this position implements the site design prepared before Webflow Designer, turning it into a fully functional page. For this, it uses the functionality of Webflow itself, as well as its own knowledge of HTML, CSS or Java Script, to “reprogram” unusual solutions, not available directly in Webflow.

This is a profession that involves large earnings, adequate to the knowledge you have. Webflow Developer often works with agencies, graphic designers and Webflow Designers. Its task is not only to implement the site so that it is intuitive, safe and functional for the user, but also to update it and catch the problems that occur on it.

Webflow Developer is responsible for:

  • front end development, i.e. implementation of what can be seen directly on the website in Webflow;
  • back end development, i.e. programming invisible elements, responsible for website loading speed or integrations.

Sometimes - when the situation requires it - Webflow Developer trains clients to use the CMS (Webflow Editor) system of the prepared website.

Working as a Webflow Developer, you will not only program the pages, but also take care of them and expand them with new functionalities and elements.

Working as a Webflow Designer - Scope of Responsibilities

Webflow designer deals with the visual part of the website. He is responsible for creating mockups that respond to the needs of users. Such a person is a combination of a graphic designer with a UX designer. He makes sure that the site is intuitive to use and presents itself well. Working as a Webflow Designer also means designing user paths and striving for the greatest possible conversion on the site.

At the same time, Webflow Designer deals with the implementation of the website in Webflow with the help of the functionalities available in the system. However, it does not have as extensive knowledge as Webflow Developer in the field of various programming languages - so it is not able to implement solutions that are not available directly in Webflow or create the necessary integrations.

Working as a Webflow Designer involves:

  • UX design, i.e. designing websites that are intuitive and simple to use;
  • UI design, that is, designing the appearance of websites that are clear and nice looking;
  • implementation of designed solutions in Webflow.

Let's add at the end that Webflow Designer needs to know the style of the brand - he knows what colors to use on the page and what fonts will work best. It is he who is responsible for the arrangement of individual elements on the site and their appearance. At the same time, he knows the capabilities of Webflow and knows what solutions are possible to implement on the site.

Webflow Developer vs Webflow Designer - how are they different?

Webflow Developer's responsibilities are much smaller than Webflow Designer. The designer's work is based on the creation of site mockups, including the layout, appearance and functionality of individual elements on the site, as well as the implementation of these elements in Webflow. The developer, on the other hand, turns the mockups created by the designer into a real, working website with Webflow and various coding languages and cannot design an intuitive website on his own.

Webflow Designer will handle the design and implementation of a simple website in Webflow, and Webflow Developer, to do this, needs the help of a designer to prepare visual mockups of the site.

Working as a Webflow Developer/Designer - how to get started?

Computer science education will be useful. However, it is not a necessity. In the Webflow Developer/Designer profession, skills and portfolio are more important. So if you are a self-taught person who has been creating your own designs for the drawer for many years, it's time to show yourself.

It is necessary to know Webflow, its individual modules, capabilities and integration. So courses will come in handy - also in the online version. The portfolio is also important. It would be good if it was also done with the help of Webflow. Show in it your site designs, preferably divided into several thematic categories. Also, make sure to update your projects regularly.

And regularly send resumes to companies, mainly agencies. You can also try to search for customers on your own. But it is a higher driving school and beginners can cause problems.

Where does Webflow Developer/Designer live?

It is impossible to unequivocally determine the amount of earnings in these professions. They depend on the type of employment (UoP, B2B or civil law contracts), as well as on the qualifications you have or the level of complexity of a given project. Thus, for example, Webflow Developer and Webflow Designer on a B2B contract will receive from 7000 to even 17 000 PLN per month.

The settlement itself can be carried out in a monthly form or for a completed project.
