Job title?

Posted 05 May 2014 - 09:39 AM

I realize there is not much to be said here as job titles often have little to no meaning but as I am interviewing for the position it would be nice to know the common interpretation:

So what does "Application Development Analyst" imply...

Depends on the associated job requirements, but I've seen that be anything from regular ol' code monkey to more of a BA/PM side heavy with coding responsibilities.

Of course there's this:

This is what I did as well. Kind of a general search of requirements for different positions.

I get the feeling it is kind of a BA+Developer role.

Analyst is such an overloaded term these days. Our support people are "Application Analysts" -- rather than the former "Support Engineers" -- its all very confusing.

Sounds like a BA to me, but I would worry more about the Job Description/Requirements than the title. I am an "Information Technology Specialist"; but technically I am an application developer; I work with other information technology specialists who are tech support, or web designers, or business analysts; many of which know nothing about coding. just depends on the company and what they want to call you I guess.

titles are relatively meaningless...

example: I was a "Business Communication Manager" - what do you think my job was?

Working for an insurance company, I had the title of Sales manager, but was actually a systems analyst. See if that makes any sense!
