Working as a software engineer

Category: Software and Internet

All digital platforms and services, from Apps to Cloud Computing to Artificial Intelligence, depend on software development. Most products are not developed for individual consumers, but for the use of existing companies to aid their competitiveness.

Enterprise software, for example, automates business activities. Reuters suggests that the market for enterprise software will reach a global $500 billion by the end of 2022.

This rapidly expanding sector offers opportunities for skilled jobs. Search our database for available vacancies here.

How can I work as a software engineer? 

To be a software engineer you need to understand and manipulate code. ‘Coding’ is the term used to describe the practice of writing software programs.

To work in coding, it helps to have a degree in a relevant area, but it is not essential. An aptitude for using computer technology is important, as is enthusiasm and willingness to learn.

Although software engineering is highly-skilled, there are opportunities for self-starters to find a way into it, even without a degree. Coding boot camps are available to teach coding languages such as HTML and CSS.

You can improve understanding by joining international online coding communities. Software engineers value collaboration, so any experience you gain on shared projects is an invaluable step towards a paid position. Check out available software engineering vacancies here.

Software engineering and diversity

Although the software industry is at the leading edge of technological innovation, it has lagged behind in terms of diversity.

The largest employers are making efforts to change their employee profile, which is predominantly white and male. Increasingly, the software industry recognises that a diverse workforce promotes more creativity and productivity.

At VERCIDA we value diversity and inclusion, and work with employers who want to take positive steps in this direction. We can put you in touch with forward-thinking employers. Search our vacancies here.
