in reply to What do you call yourself?

Being in corporate-land, I get the bizarrely meaningless title of "Systems Analyst." (update - the full title is actually "Systems Analyst - Business Solutions"). I'm not entirely sure what a Systems Analyst means, but in my case it consists of not quite equal parts of:

  • functional design of software
  • database design
  • coding and debugging
  • testing
  • end-user support
  • systems administration
  • something akin to what they called "evangelism" in the late 90's

My business card and resume say "Systems Analyst" because I feel like that's the honest thing to do. Plus it's a lovely setup for a potential future interview question.

By the way, since I work for a company that manufactures large and complex machines, there's no danger of people calling me an Engineer. Which is fine by me.

Update: I found out that the above is only true because I work in an IT division. The developers who write code for the company's software-related products are called Software Engineers.
