The Ideal Software Job

The various factors contributing to the exponential growth of software development companies in India is the country’s proficiency in technical field, fluency in English, quick turnaround time, experienced and reliable professionals and the substantially lower wages for high quality work. As a result, there has been a proliferation of educational institutions and universities proffering specialized IT education. Over the years, software development companies in India have built an unassailable reputation in the international markets.

Many foreign firms are outsourcing various technical works to software development companies in India including banking solutions, supply chain management, human resource development,legal requirements and e commerce solutions. A huge talent pool of software developers available in India gives her the edge over other countries in software development. India is considered the offshore destination of major global high-tech firms like HP, IBM, Intel, AMD, Microsoft, Oracle Corporation, Cisco, SAP, BEA, etc. This has led to large scale employment opportunities to software professionals in the IT industry in India.

The demand for software jobs within India is also rising rapidly. Most employers need computer professionals with strong programming skills, systems analysis, interpersonal, and business sense as every company wants to computerize their business activities. In most companies, software developers are involved in the process of the development of software products by writing the code, interacting with content providers, graphics creators, and programmers to produce the end product.
An employer or software company would invariably prefer a software developer to hold an engineering degree in IT or computers. A Master’s in degree in Computer Applications (MCA) is also widely favored. The salary of a software developer always depends upon the experience and the educational qualification of an employee. The salary structure of experienced software professionals are more or less as shown below:

Freshers are paid Rs.6000 to Rs.8000
1 year experienced candidates are paid Rs.10000 to Rs.12000
2 years experienced candidates are paid Rs.15000 to Rs.20000
3 years experienced candidates are paid Rs.20000 to Rs.35000
3-5 years experience candidates are paid Rs. 30000 to Rs.45000
5+ years experience candidates are paid Rs. 45000plus

The career growth of a software developer largely depends on the capability of the concerned individual and the size and growth of the company he or she is working for. There are companies, which pay very high even for a fresher who has passed out from the top level institutes in the country. As you grow in this industry there is ample amount of growth in salary as well as your career.

The phenomenal development of Internet technologies and the abundant growth in e-commerce, (doing business on the Internet) has resulted in the rising demand for computer software professionals. The software engineers are responsible for the development of internet, intranet, and World Wide Web (www) applications. There is a huge demand for software professionals in the Indian IT industry and it is estimated to increase manifold in the years ahead.
