Top 5 Future Career Options for Java Developers


Building a career is more of a marathon than a sprint. A clear vision of what the future holds for you can be a strong motivator and guide on your career path. Starting out as a Java developer, here are the top career options you can move towards as you gain more experience.

Solution Architect

Solution Architects take charge of the design of one (or more) applications or services within the organization. They need strong fundamentals so they can interpret the requirements provided by the functional analysts, design the solution and create the architecture and design artifacts for the team to implement.

DevOps Engineer

DevOps Engineers are responsible for the code release and deployment activities within a CI/CD system. They need a solid understanding of the network operations required for managing environments, automation, and planning tests and deployments.

Business Analyst

Business Analysts are involved in the design and modification of the IT systems that cater to business needs. They interact with the business stakeholders and subject matter experts and analyze documentation to understand business problems and needs.

Scrum Master

Scrum Masters are responsible for running the daily scrum meeting for their agile team and resolve any issues that are blocking the team. They need experience in project or business areas as well as well-honed project management and coordination skills.

Project Manager

Project Managers work with upper management and are responsible for managing all aspects of the project — the scope, schedule, finance, risk, quality, and resources.
