Not to be confused with a freelancer, a software consultant’s job is to find ways to build software for companies that have no means to create or build the software themselves. Software consultants generally do not build websites (that’s the job of a web developer) but instead solely focus on the software behind it. By talking to a company’s CEO or CTO, a software consultant can formulate the software or possible solutions needed based on their ideas/problems. Typically software consultants do more than just write code. Below are some examples of what software consultants do:
- Develop applications and computer programs
- Create phone apps
- Project management
- Fix program bugs
A a software consultant can be found online. Depending on the importance of the project at hand, hiring a software consultant can be inexpensive or rather quite expensive depending on your needs and preference. Say you need a plugin for your WordPress site but there isn’t a plugin that already exists on the marketplace. You could hire an inexpensive software consultant on a website like Upwork to find a company out of India or Pakistan to create your plugin. If you prefer a software consultant to be fluent in English and have a presence in the United States, hiring a software consultant will generally be more expensive.
- Upwork – Hire Software Consultants from other countries.
- Indeed – Find and hire software consultants located in the US or near you.
Often times the location of a consultant can have a big impact on their salary. If a software consultant is located and employed in the United States, which there are currently over 1.5 million, they can make significantly more and have better opportunities.
