Software Engineer

Software Engineers develop detailed technical specifications from which programs can be written to support and enhance existing software, 3rd party products, and/or new software applications.  Software Engineers consistently demonstrate a high-level of coding proficiency and can be assigned coding tasks of a complex nature.  They also accurately estimate the effort required to code the specifications for which they have written.  Software Engineers may also provide input into moderately complex technical designs and proposed customer solutions.  They may also begin to assume a leadership role for smaller-scoped projects or larger project components. Software Engineers will gain some exposure into software engineering by researching and analyzing the root of the problem to determine and recommend appropriate technical solutions. They demonstrate a solid business understanding for the purpose of the application or assigned task.
