As a software engineer, you’ll work in a constantly evolving environment, due to technological advances and the strategic direction of the organisation you work for. You’ll create, maintain, audit and improve systems to meet particular needs, often as advised by a systems analyst or architect, testing both hard and software systems to diagnose and resolve system faults.
The role also covers writing diagnostic programs and designing and writing code for operating systems and software to ensure efficiency. When required, you’ll make recommendations for future developments.
Job titles and descriptions in IT are not standardized. Instead of a software engineer, you may be called a systems/software/database/web programmer, engineer or developer, depending on the system you’re developing. Alternatively, the programming language you use may become part of your title, such as Java or C# developer. The work of a software engineer can also form part of a multimedia programmer role.
Depending on the organisation you work for, you may have a more defined role and work within a group of IT specialists which can include systems analysts, systems designers and systems testers. Nevertheless, as software engineers often manage the support systems required to effectively run an organisation, the role can also require you to communicate effectively and translate the needs of different teams into systems developments.
Relevant work experience is a good way of demonstrating a genuine interest in computing and is regarded favourably by employers. Gain experience through course-related placements, opportunities to work shadow or a year in industry.
Through our fulltime Software Engineer Program, you’ll develop innovative solutions that impact the day-to-day lives of customers, clients and businesses around the world. You’ll benefit from a $12 billion annual investment in technology, working in one of the world’s biggest tech companies. You could design, build, deploy and run innovations across our cloud, cyber, digital, markets and payments businesses. You’ll work in an open, collaborative and supportive culture, where our agile teams are constantly innovating, learning new skills, and at the forefront of developing new technologies and solutions.
