Application engineers need to have technical expertise in programming, design, business and the software and hardware required to run the application. This Hiring Kit from TechRepublic Premium provides an adjustable framework your business can use to find, recruit and ultimately hire the right person for the job.

DETERMINING FACTORS, DESIRABLE PERSONALITY TRAITS AND SKILLSETS
As one of the hands-on members of the software development team, application engineers will, of course, be required to have technical proficiency in coding and programming. But the best application engineers will also possess an inherent ability to perceive what a client/customer/user/business requires a new or existing application to do or achieve.
Application engineers may be called upon to develop software for external clients, internal clients, customers, users, management and third-party vendors. The applications under development may be sold to paying customers or clients, or used internally to support the delivery of services or product manufacturing. The “client” will always be dependent on the project, and the application engineer must be able to communicate with the client regardless of the specifics of the relationship.
