There are several different types of virus developers. The most sophisticated ones are written by spies with state sponsorship (the most famous of these viruses being Stuxnet). Most are written by criminals to steal data or open back doors into systems. A few are written by security researchers as proofs of concept of a particular security vulnerability, but those tend to be neither widespread nor actually dangerous since they're typically released only very shortly before the flaw they exploit is fixed. Finally there are viruses written by "1337 H4X0R5" that serve no real purpose and usually aren't very sophisticated.
