Computer & Software Engineering Graduate Jobs overview

If there is such thing as a ‘safe bet’ degree, then software engineering almost certainly falls into this category. This sector has been growing non-stop over the past 20 or so years, and it doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. As a result of the sector becoming so popular (mainly due to excellent salaries), it can be quite difficult to land your dream job. Nevertheless, in New Zealand, this field is booming, with branches of large international companies like Microsoft and Google all looking for the best software engineering graduates in the ANZ region.

Software engineering involves the development of new and existing software programs to achieve a number of objectives. Software engineers normally fall into two camps, those that work as application software engineers normally are tasked with designing, creating and modifying specific applications. Then there are those who are responsible for software ecosystems which a number of programs are linked to meet an organisations needs. Regardless of how or where you specialise as a software engineer, you will need strong attention to detail, problem-solving skills and an in-depth understanding of both coding languages and the fundamentals of computer science.

What is the average salary for software engineering graduates?

The average salaries for computer and software engineering graduates vary, however it hovers around the NZ$72,000 mark. Starting salaries are closer to the $55,000 mark, although after a few years of experience employees in this sector can demand salaries in the six-figure range.

What industries hire software engineering graduates?

Graduates will quickly find that most companies are hiring software engineers. The world really is your oyster with this degree! Homegrown tech companies like Datacom hire dozens of graduates in their Auckland and Wellington offices each year, plus corporations like Westpac, ANZ, Deloitte and Accenture also hire software engineers.
