To gain competitive advantage, modern business has turned to technologies like cloud computing and big data, but the benefits derived from those high-level concepts can only be reaped when there are applications built to exploit them. The application engineer creates, designs and tests computer software programs designed to meet pre-determined specifications and goals.
Application engineers work in the trenches of software development and are often required to first assess what a client, both internally and externally, needs, wants, and should want from a prospective or existing application. Only then does an application engineer have the framework necessary to begin the actual coding of a piece of software.
Application engineers need to have technical expertise in programming, design, business, and the software and hardware required to run the application. A skillset that not everyone possesses. This Hiring Kit: Application Engineer, from TechRepublic Premium, provides an adjustable framework your business can use to find, recruit, and ultimately hire the right person for the job.
