Software developer or software engineer: What’s the difference?

Software developers and engineers perform many of the same functions with many of the same skills. The two terms are sometimes used interchangeably. But there are typically slight differences between the two roles.

Software developers tend to work on a smaller scale than engineers, often focusing on a niche like mobile applications or internet of things (IoT). Software engineers, on the other hand, take a big picture approach that might include data analytics, testing, and scaling in addition to programming.
