What is the difference between these 2 jobs?
Hi im thinking about being a software developer but I keep on seeing software engineer. What are the cons and pros of a software engineer vs a software developer? Also thank you for all the help you guys have given me especially Randy Tolentino.
Besides job titles, most people with a college degree in Computer Science or Software Engineering will usually refer to themselves as "Software Engineers."
Mostly application development/ business application development companies provide software developer as title ( like financial companies , health care and insurance companies)
R&D and Technology companies provide title as software engineer title.( like google , Amazon , Fb , etc)
Mostly engineers are expected to invent / create / optimize the solution
Where as developers need to develop the application with well defined process by engineering team / architect team
Basically, the software engineers develop and maintain the platform where the software developers then create the program itself. It is true that these two professions are closely linked but you are still very different in certain aspects
