The front-end developer takes care of making a website functional and usable for the user. In other words, s/he completes the work of the back-end developer, who instead builds and manages all that concerns the server aspect of the site. The front-end developer is much more than a web designer because s/he deals with the visual and graphic aspect and also makes it possible for the visitor to surf for the website's business purposes.
Considering the nature of the primary task of the front-end developer, it is clear that s/he must necessarily have a good knowledge of the fundamentals of UX (User Experience). It should be clarified that, due to the heterogeneity of Internet users, quality such as creativity, versatility and problem-solving are absolutely necessary for a skilled front-end developer.
The role of the front-end developer can be both as a freelance and employee, and we must also bear in mind that it goes nicely with the concept of smart working, because we are talking about a job that does not necessarily require a fixed physical location to be carried out.
