How to become a frontend, backend or fullstack expert

There is no set path to becoming a software engineer. This makes it possible to acquire know-how in software development through training, studies or as a lateral entrant. However, a degree in computer science or business informatics offers an excellent basis. With a degree in software engineering, software technology, global software development or media informatics, the path is literally pre-programmed.

Ultimately practical experience is above all what counts most in convincing companies of their own abilities. Part-time jobs, internships or projects at the university or university of applied sciences are welcome and confirm your specialist expertise.

But even without a degree, a career as a software developer is possible: With dual training as an IT specialist for application development, you will acquire theoretical knowledge at a vocational school. At the same time, you will gain the necessary practical experience in a company.


Your software developer salary in Austria

The salary of a software developer depends on the degree. As a rule, a higher degree also means a higher salary. However, companies are also interested in the respective specialisation of software developers. The more in demand the specialisation, the more lavish the salary.

The software developer salary is correspondingly variable. In a junior position, you start at a gross salary of EUR 40,000. Leading positions can even earn up to EUR 80,000 per year. If you're an executive or moving toward software or solution architecture, salaries can even be higher.

Your career as a software developer

According to a Bitkom study, there was already a shortfall of over 80,000 qualified IT specialists in 2020. The high demand means, among other things, that software developers are absolutely flexible both in the choice of their employer and industry. After a few years of professional experience, a job change is easily possible.

But to achieve more, software developers don't necessarily have to change industries or companies. There are often internal opportunities to develop from junior software developer to software developer and to take on increasing responsibility for staff members. After a few more years, the leap to senior software developer or even development into a software architecture role beckons. So take advantage of the software engineer opportunities and work for a company that suits while climbing the career ladder at the same time.
