What is a back-end web developer?

The backend of an application is responsible for things like calculations, business logic, database interactions, and performance. Most of the code that is required to make an application work will be done on the backend. Backend code is run on the server, as opposed to the client.

This means that backend developers not only need to understand programming languages and databases, but they must have an understanding of server architecture as well.
