[thelist] [OT] Describing role of individual developer operating as a company

I am an independent web developer operating as a company - a "sole
proprietorship" as is known here. Though I am a programmer more than
anything else (my forte is writing server and client side programs), I
also occasionally deal with web design and minor sysadmin tasks among
others - hence the self-assumed "web developer" tag.

Recently, I was required to submit a formal technical resumé of myself
for a business offer, and I have a problem describing my role in the
company precisely. It is in effect a one-man company, and my
"official" role is as it's "sole proprietor", which somehow sounds too
absurd in a technical resumé, IMHO. Will "web developer" undermine my
role in running the company (which honestly isn't much more than a
couple of hours of paperwork every year)? Should I stick to "web
developer" and briefly mention that I also run the company?

Any ideas most appreciated. And, apologies if this is way off topic.

Thanks in advance,
Vijay Immanuel
