That's the unfortunate part. In order to get a developer job, you need to first take on all these responsibilities in order to build an application for your own portfolio. Then once you get the job, these skills will no longer be necessary. It's like you need these skills in order to get a job that doesn't require these skills lol.

This is where I'm at. I'm the sole developer working at a company building an IOT device, and I'm doing everything from speccing hardware to frontend/backend coding to managing the production servers. It's definitely overwhelming to gain the knowledge to work on every layer of the project.
