The term “software engineer” is often used interchangeably with “software developer”. But they aren't full synonyms. An engineer can do the developer’s work plus more. Developers create digital products for end-users. Engineers can make both such products and the software that is required for their development.

Essential skills of a software engineer

To make a career in software engineering, you should be good at:

  • Data structures and algorithms.
  • Source control.
  • Cloud computing.
  • Git and GitHub.
  • Containers (Docker and Kubernetes).
  • IDEs (VSCode or IntelliJIDEA).
  • Database and SQL.
  • Linux (UNIX).
  • Object-oriented programming.
  • Computer networks.
  • Software frameworks.
  • Cloud platforms.
  • Scripting.

The most popular programming languages for this type of occupation are C, C++, C#, Python, JavaScript or Java. The latter is the easiest to master.

Your responsibilities

Your daily routine will include the following responsibilities:

  • Designing and maintaining software systems.

Plus, you might be required to explain why you chose this profession and this employer.
