There are many options to choose from when deciding the type of work you want to do when you work from home. One such position is a great way to make a living and gives most people high work satisfaction, but does require technical training. This position is that of a Computer Programmer.
Obtaining a position as a remote Computer Programmer (also known as Software Developer) is a little more challenging than an equivalent position in an office. While the skills needed are the same, there are many more companies that have real estate and office space for their employees, or are not fond of the idea of not being able to closely monitor their employees. Obtaining this kind of remote position usually requires several years of experience working as a programmer and also knowledge of the same technologies/languages needed for the particular job.
The way a programmer can work remotely is they are able to connect to the company’s code base through online VCS (Version Control Software). The programmer will use an IDE (Integrated Developer Environment) to connect to the VCS and have access to the code in order to work on and update it. VCS allows many programmers to work on the code simultaneously and gives elegant ways to deal with conflicting code changes. The code remote programmers work on helps operate things such as websites, machines used in stores to check out, gas station pumps, and keep track of important data for companies, the government, and more.
According to various websites – The pay rate for remote software developers can fall within the range of ($50,000/year to $70,000/year) depending on the Company, experience of the programmer, and what the code is used for. If you are a developer with 1 – 2 years of experience, you can expect to get paid $50,000 – $70,000 a year for working remotely as a developer. Usually as years pass, companies will give annual bonuses/salary increases. Also, you may find that you would like to start your own company and develop your own code, which would give you the ability to make as much money as your business could output value for.
