Applications Engineer

Definition - What does Applications Engineer mean?

An applications engineer is an individual that designs, develops and tests software applications.

They work throughout the software development life cycle in supporting application design, analysis, development and testing processes. They coordinate and help in product development by focusing on application development from both user and technical standpoints.

Techopedia explains Applications Engineer

Applications engineers generally do not program or create core software code, but have an understanding of writing and structuring source code. They test applications, evaluate testing and customer feedback, and work with other team members to modify and improve the software.

Applications engineers also have skills in engineering applications to be waste free, for example, removing unnecessary code, features or components. They also plan, design, direct, execute and coordinate the application development technical documentation.
