Helping you find a career in the software engineering industry
Software developers work on a range of different product types: massive projects for government departments, critical business applications for corporates, or on apps and computer programs which we all rely on.
You could work in a global business like Microsoft, Google, or Oracle, or in a small independent business.
In a large company, it's likely you'll work on big projects in large teams. However if you work in a consultancy, you'll often work across a greater variety of projects for clients across several industries.
In small companies, there will often be greater responsibility and less hands-on management for developers. Work-life balance can be challenging as projects are often scheduled to strict deadlines, requiring occasional late evenings or early starts.
As a software developer or engineer, your day will involve writing and testing code for programs, evaluating existing programs and integrating new functionalities and software, drafting technical specifications and ongoing operational improvement.
