Full-Stack Employees - A Definition
Cincinnati, OH | Posted: 07/12/2015 | Author: Stuart Koenig
Let’s discuss “Full-Stack Employees”. @chrismessina, the gent who invented #hashtags, in a recent think piece in a Medium Article defined the “Full-Stack Employee” as, “the full-stack employee has a powerful combination of skills that make them incredibly valuable.” He says, “They are adept at navigating the rapidly evolving and shifting technological landscape. They make intuitive decisions amidst information-abundance, where sparse facts mingle loosely with data-drenched opinions. Full stack employees are capable of speaking design lingo, know that using Comic Sans is criminal, and are adept at making mocks in Keynote, Sketch, or Skitch (if it comes to that). And they know the difference between UI and UX.”
Some would say Full-Stack Employees are the new “Rockstars” of the creative and technology class and others think they are the anti-Christ. @ELEA, in a rebuttal to the above article says they are good at “Social media, storytelling, project management, design, code…you name it, they’ve got it covered. Passably, anyhow.”
Both articles are interesting and thought provoking reads. What do you think, let us know!
