Software Application Developers

Work Environment

Software application developers work in comfortable environments. Many computer companies are known for their casual work atmosphere; employees generally do not have to wear suits, except during client meetings. Overall, many software developers work standard weeks. However, they may be required to work overtime near a deadline, and over 25 percent work more than 40 hours per week. It is common in software development to share office or cubicle space with two or three coworkers, which is typical of the team approach to working. Internet technology is also allowing software application developers to work from home or other remote locations. As a software application developer or programmer, much of the day is spent in front of the computer, although a software developer will have occasional team meetings or meetings with clients.
