Software engineers are professionals trained to offer a solution to a need.  They differ from computer programmers or code writers in the scope of their job duties.  Software engineers start with the research and development of the software, to the design and encoding, and finally to its testing and tech support.  They work alongside stakeholders, other engineers, programmers, and end-users.  They are responsible for the entire life cycle of the software. 

Our two guests for today’s edition of Top Career 100 interview series are Erin Summers and Zainab Ghadiyali.  Both of them work at Facebook.  Zainab currently works as a Software Engineer at Facebook where she builds products that improve advertising experience.  Erin, on the other hand, works leads a team of developers who build ads for Android.  

They are both seasoned software engineers who are enthusiastic about sharing their “insider’s perspectives” in the career and interesting stories from working in one of the world’s leading tech companies.  More importantly, they are co-founders of wogrammer –  an advocacy medium where women engineers can share their stories and experiences.
