in reply to What do you call yourself?

Its my impression that here, in the UK, the job titles are more standardized. You can generally either be a Programmer or an Analyst Programmer. You can prepend Senior to these.

"Analyst" implies that you can start from a customer requirement and work out possible solutions and estimate time and budget. Programmer implies that someone else will give you a programming task, and you'll have to complete it.

Of course there are also sys admins and quality assurance/tester roles.

    That's certainly not been my experience :-) A select few job titles from recent Perl jobs in my inbox:

    • Developer
    • Technical Lead
    • Programmer
    • Systems Engineer
    • Software Engineer
    • Application Developer
    • Professional Services Consultant
    • Analyst Programmer
    • Application Support Specialist
    • Automated Software Test Engineer
    • ... and so on ...
