Everyone needs a software right now.  To be more efficient, faster etc. And here we come: software engineers doing our best to make people’s lives easier…

So why do companies and other organizations have a tendency to undervalue people with advanced technological skills?

Ok now. Tell me the truth: how often do you actually think about the people who need the app when writing a code? Do you think you are doing something for a user, or that you are solving an interesting problem and how to solve it in the most efficient way?

I bet the second one for the most part.

Because of that, unfortunately,  we are still considered as cost centers.

So what to do to improve our image?

Be professional. Be an engineer.
Take responsibility for your work, get to know your craft, keep your skills sharp, understand your business domain, learn continuously, try to get better every day.
