Popular Testing and Development Jobs
A software developer role will often see a candidate assuming responsibility for working on a project area in a specific language or set of languages and frameworks, building applications and automation solutions for their employer. A software developer career requires committing to lifelong learning, a passion for the latest technological developments, and the ability to communicate complex ideas with internal and external stakeholders.
Full Stack Developer
The full stack developer considers the entire depth of the product or project they’re working on, offering the businesses they work for their expertise across several programming languages, from the back-end infrastructure to front-end user interfaces, delivering high-quality, resilient and elegant solutions to difficult problems.
Software Developer in Test (SDET)
Software developers in test are typically asked to combine their skills in programming with the testing and quality assurance that are integral to any tech-driven workplace. SDETs focus on building software to automate and improve the accuracy of this vital process. These candidates are observant and detail-oriented, able to translate business requirements into test cases.
Quantitative developers identify opportunities for businesses to utilise high-performance computing solutions to develop and maintain quantitative models. As a role within the financial services industry, quantitative developers often find themselves in lucrative roles with hedge funds and investment banks. These professionals will often possess skills in several languages suited to quantitative analysis, such as Python, C# and Java.
