Personality Type

Knowledge

  • Internet of Things

    The general principles, categories, requirements, limitations and vulnerabilities of smart connected devices (most of them with intended internet connectivity).

  • Computer programming

    The techniques and principles of software development, such as analysis, algorithms, coding, testing and compiling of programming paradigms (e.g. object oriented programming, functional programming) and of programming languages.

  • Tools for software configuration management

    The software programs to perform configuration identification, control, status accounting and audit, such as CVS, ClearCase, Subversion, GIT and TortoiseSVN perform this management.

  • ICT debugging tools

    The ICT tools used to test and debug programs and software code, such as GNU Debugger (GDB), Intel Debugger (IDB), Microsoft Visual Studio Debugger, Valgrind and WinDbg.

  • Mobile operating systems

    The features, restrictions, architectures and other characteristics of operating systems designed to run on mobile devices, such as Android or iOS.

  • Embedded systems

    The computer systems and components with a specialised and autonomous function within a larger system or machine such as embedded systems software architectures, embedded peripherals, design principles and development tools.

  • Integrated development environment software

    The suite of software development tools for writing programs, such as compiler, debugger, code editor, code highlights, packaged in a unified user interface, such as Visual Studio or Eclipse.

  • Industrial software

    The selection of software that aids in estimating, managing and scheduling industrial processes such as design, work flow and production improvement.

Skills

  • Utilise computer-aided software engineering tools

    Use software tools (CASE) to support the development lifecycle, design and implementation of software and applications of high-quality that can be easily maintained.

  • Design application interfaces

    Create and program application interfaces, their operations, inputs and outputs and underlying types.

  • Develop software prototype

    Create a first incomplete or preliminary version of a piece of software application to simulate some specific aspects of the final product.

  • Interpret technical texts

    Read and understand technical texts that provide information on how to perform a task, usually explained in steps.

  • Use different communication channels

    Make use of various types of communication channels such as verbal, handwritten, digital and telephonic communication with the purpose of constructing and sharing ideas or information.

  • Provide technical documentation

    Prepare documentation for existing and upcoming products or services, describing their functionality and composition in such a way that it is understandable for a wide audience without technical background and compliant with defined requirements and standards. Keep documentation up to date.

  • Debug software

    Repair computer code by analysing testing results, locating the defects causing the software to output an incorrect or unexpected result and removing these faults.

  • Use software design patterns

    Utilise reusable solutions, formalised best practices, to solve common ICT development tasks in software development and design.

  • Use software libraries

    Utilise collections of codes and software packages which capture frequently used routines to help programmers simplify their work.

  • Create flowchart diagram

    Compose a diagram that illustrates systematic progress through a procedure or system using connecting lines and a set of symbols.

  • Analyse software specifications

    Assess the specifications of a software product or system to be developed by identifying functional and non-functional requirements, constraints and possible sets of use cases which illustrate interactions between the software and its users.
