Daniel’s Answer

Depends. Often (most?) times there's 0 difference. Google's job title is Software Engineer, while up the coast amazon has an identical position called Software Development Engineer. This is almost identical to Microsoft's position for SDE, though not quite because MS (unlike A and G) also hire explicit software architects.


But at the end of the day, usually software engineer and software developer mean the same thing.

Adam’s Answer

There is no difference. They are synonyms used for the same essential job (writing and modifying software).


It's a great, high-paying job. If you have the aptitude (logic applied for hours, focus on user experience), the sky is the limit.

Richard’s Answer

Yes i agree with above comments from Adam and Daniel. There is no real difference. It is just a job title how the companies manage this.
