This episode gives the listener a rundown of the categories of work that are required in every software project. Jeffrey discusses a few of the many different types of careers in the software industry, defining what security means to you and your product, and executing your vision.


Topics of Discussion:

[3:38] Jeffrey names a few of the many roles that may be at a software company: the founder, programmers, product visionary, architect, developers, builders, sellers, project managers, and program managers.

[5:00] Specialized job titles are everywhere, and there is no standard job title for people who work in software.

[5:18] If it’s a new piece of software, someone needs to effectively write the press release text and market the product. What are the other roles that make up the elements of design?

[8:20] Your press release is your vision, and now you can back it up with your design and execution.

[9:52] How a person experiences the software is a huge element of the design.

[14:49] We have to define what our vision of secure is.

[18:00] As your team grows, be conscious about the appropriate time to fill distinct roles. Chances are at the smaller companies, your team members will be doing more than one thing.

[19:25] Oftentimes, the testing aspect is split between the people who are working on the envisioning, the selling, and the improving.
