According to the ANZSCO definition, Software and Applications Programmers design, develop, test, maintain and document program code in accordance with user requirements, and system and technical specifications.

You usually need a bachelor or postgraduate degree in a related information technology field (such as programming, software engineering, software development or computer science) to work as a Software or Applications Programmer. Some workers have a Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualification.

Job Prospects: 

The number of people working as Software and Applications Programmers (in their main job) grew very strongly over 5 years: from 80,200 in 2014 to 135,000 in 2019.

*Important Note - obviously the market is very dynamic due to the current situation around COVID-19.

Location: Majority of the jobs are located in New South Wales and Victoria (no news in that!)
