Job Description for Software Engineer

In the world of software design and development, a software engineer plays a key role. The engineer is typically the person who helps to develop the ways that software functions created by a software design team will work. The software engineer will work with designers to help consolidate disparate program functions into a unified whole. The engineer also works with programmers and coders to help map out various programming tasks and smaller functions, which are then combined into larger, functioning programs or new features for existing software.

Software Engineer Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Software Engineer?

Software Engineer in Brussels:
"A lot of responsabilities / Small feeling of exploitation."
Pros: I directly had a lot of responsabilities. I developed an entirely new product for the company that has already been sold to 60+ different client for 5,000€ per unit (~2,000€ of gain per unit). I learned a lot given that I developed the backend and frontend, and I also was responsible for the installation on the servers (~devops).
Cons: It's a little stressful given that I am directly responsible in case of bugs in the software. I also know that the company made a lot of money thanks to my work : more than 4 times my annual salary for a software that took me 3 months to develop (and I am the only person developing and installing it). Hence I feel a little bit exploited.
