Content developers are a team of Jagex employees who think of and develop content updates. They oversee the development of everything that goes into RuneScape.

RoleEdit

Content developers are generally asked to develop a certain update with a particular goal (for example "a new, low-budget Herblore training method") and are more or less free to fill it in as they please and devise its mechanics, narrative, and gameplay, so long as it remains in accordance with the design. A unique trait of Jagex content developers is that they also code their content.
