You need to keep practicing and learning from both book and web resources. At a point you will even start learning from the code that you wrote. Just be patient.

On a side note regarding game engine programmer roles, I am yet to find any that do not require graphics rendering skills. If you must avoid graphics which is unlikely to make life easier for you, you may be looking at UI programming or the like.
