JOB DESCRIPTION: Software Engineer

Software engineers furnish advice on project costs or layout changes. They also document layout specifications and other system-related data. Equally important, software engineers have to verify the stability or scalability of system architecture. They are often called upon to complete models and simulations, using manual or automated tools, to analyze or predict system performance under different operating conditions. They are expected to identify system data or software components used to meet user needs. Finally, software engineers collaborate with engineers or software developers to decide on appropriate layout solutions or insure the compatibility of system components.

Every day, software engineers are expected to be able to write clearly and communicate well. They need to listen to and understand others in meetings. It is also important that they read and understand documents and reports.
