Software developers (Programmers/Engineers) are the creative minds behind computer programmes. They develop the applications that allow people to do specific tasks on computers or devices, while others develop the underlying systems that run the devices or control the networks.

Software Developers must identify the core functionalities that users need, and possess a balance of hard and soft skills. Not only are software developers in charge of outlining and creating the code and design for a programme, but the jobs generally involve a lot of collaboration between various stakeholders. The top technical skills for software developers include Java, SQL, JavaScript and Python.

Software Developers are essential to the success of the IT sector and remain in high demand. There are currently almost 4,000 job vacancies for software developers and software engineers (variety of platforms) in Ireland.
