What does a Senior Applications Engineer do?

Applications engineers work as a bridge between customers and engineering teams. They use customer input and sales information to design or redesign, develop, test, and implement complex software problems and applications. They provide technical support and expertise to customers by testing applications and responding to feedback. They perform installations and maintenance and often perform sales presentations and demonstrations.

Applications engineers perform customer analysis to create applications that respond to their needs and provide innovative solutions to common problems. They perform prototyping applications and code reviews to ensure products are satisfactory. They debug, test, code, improve, and redesign tasks, respond to customer issues, provide updated software that solves bug issues, perform customer installations, and work with customer service teams. Applications engineers need a degree in software engineering.
