Back End Software Development refers to the discipline of building databases and server-side application systems, including writing APIs and creating libraries. Backend Developers will often use Python, C#, C++ or GoLang. Depending on their experience and the company hiring Back End Developers can earn up to £200,000 base-salary.

What is Full Stack Development?
