I'm currently the Flash developer at an Ad agency. Knowing that Flash is becoming antiquated, I have spent the last few years absorbing everything that my coworkers do.
At this point, I can say that...
- I am competent in UX, Wireframes, and IA's. I often work with our strategy team, and lend my thoughts in brainstorming sessions.
- I am good at HTML/CSS/JS and can handle site builds, and have a lot of experience with AS3/animation that translates over to standards compliant websites. AJAX, LESS, and other emerging technologies greatly interest me, and I can tell that I'm ahead of my coworkers who are UI Developers.
- I have some experience with PHP/MySQL and have built basic backend systems that contain log-ins, quiz games, search functionality and other miscellaneous stuff.
- I also design on a semi-regular basis. Everything from sites, promotions, and banner ads.
At a small agency, this wouldn't be all that strange... But I work for a mid-sized agency where everyone is very siloed, and I seem to be the only person who bridges the divides.
My questions is, what do I call myself? I am going to be asking for a promotion in the coming weeks, and I am afraid I can't come up with a simple title that quantifies my role. Because my job encompasses both design and development, it has been tough finding a grey area in-between the two.
