HUMAN RESOURCES SECTOR
The software engineering field is vast, with various kinds of roles depend on the intricacy of the application.
Some of the most popular types of software engineer roles in designing and developing video bots are:
Front-End Engineer, Back-End Engineer, Full Stack Engineer, Software Engineer in Test (QA Engineer), DevOps Engineer, Security Engineer.
A software engineer who specializes in the development of the user interface (UI) is known as front-end engineer.
The user interfaces include visual elements like layouts and aesthetics that users see and interact within a web application.
Front-end engineers deal with cross browser compatibility and fixing bugs to ensure an excellent visual presentation of the UI.
Thus, they work with the code that runs on different user devices, browsers, and operating systems.
Developing a responsive application also comes under this.
In general, they are supported by back-end developers, who are responsible for server-side application logic and integration of the work front-end developers do.
gain feedback continuously from users, customers, and colleagues
monitor app performance, watch for traffic drops related to site usability problems and rectify any issues
write functional requirement documents and guides
create quality mockups and prototypes, ensuring high-quality graphic standards and brand consistency
turn UI/UX designs into prototypes, creating excellent interactions from designs
write reusable code and libraries (with matching documentation) to a standard which makes it quick and easy to maintain the code in the future
optimize applications for maximum speed
optimize applications for maximum scalability
design new features, or maintain old features
collaborate with back-end developers and web designers to improve usability
help back-end developers with coding and troubleshooting
stay up-to-date with emerging technologies
A software engineer who specializes in the underlying logic and performance of the application is known as back-end engineer.
They often design and implement the core logic, keeping in mind scalability.
They do this by integrating with data systems, caches, email systems using Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).
They participate in the entire application lifecycle, focusing on coding and debugging.
They have to write clean code to develop functional web applications.
They used to troubleshoot and debug applications and have to perform UI tests to optimize performance.
They manage cutting-edge technologies to improve legacy applications and have to collaborate with Front-end developers to integrate user-facing elements with server-side logic.
They gather and address technical and design requirements and provide training and support to internal teams.
They have to build reusable code and libraries for future use and liaise with developers, designers and system administrators to identify new features along with following emerging technologies.
Full Stack Engineer
A software engineer who can handle both front-end and back-end work is known as full-stack engineer.
They have the skills required to create a fully functional web application.
Software Engineer in Test (QA Engineer)
A software engineer who is liable for writing software to validate the quality of the application is known as a QA engineer.
QA engineers make automated tests, tools and techniques to ensure that products and processes run as expected.
Software engineers who are familiar with the technologies required for the development of systems to build, deploy, integrate and administer back-end software and distributed systems are known as DevOps engineers.
They mostly manage the application framework, i.e., the database systems, servers, etc.
A software engineer who specializes in creating frameworks, techniques, and procedures to test the security of a software system and exploit and fix security flaws is known as a security engineer.
This type of developer often works as a “white-hat” ethical hacker and attempts to penetrate systems to find vulnerabilities.
