Back-end software engineer

A person of the invisible front in charge of developing and maintaining the core functional logic and features of a product. A back-end developer typically has an excellent command of C++, C#, Java, or another high-level programming language. They work directly with the program code and focus on how it is going to work — not how it is going to look. Their primary responsibility is to ensure that the services requested by the front-end system are performed correctly at the software level.

Choose back-end development if you:

  • Are good at logical thinking and have an analytical mindset.
  • Are passionate about writing a clean understandable code and spend your free time working on “pet projects” of your own.
  • Are a life-long learner willing to spend a significant amount of time honing your technical skills.
  • Know English well enough to read technical documentation.
