Software Developer

Software Developer Job Description

1. You can expect to make $93,350 per year

2. There are currently 1,018,000 people employed as a Software Developer.

3. Software developers are the creative minds behind computer programs. Some develop the applications that allow people to do specific tasks on a computer or other device. Others develop the underlying systems that run the devices or control networks.

5. I think people with creative minds would do very well in this type of job because it involves making interesting games like flappy bird.

6.Prospective Software Developer trainees must pass an aptitude test, which is administered by the hiring department.

7. You can make a decent living as a software developer, and if you were lucky enough to get hired at a pre-IPO tech phenom, you can even get rich at it. But set your sights above the average and below Scrooge McDuck and you won't find many developers in that salary range. In fact, the number of developers earning $200,000 and above is under 10%, writes blogger Phil Johnson who looked at salary data from Glassdoor, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The perfect fit of our mission statements and core values. Knowing that, it became much easier and more natural to convince them of why I was the right individual for them (besides, of course, having to solve a set of different problems).
