This question already has an answer here:
I am working in a 10 person startup. We will be running the pilot project for our idea over the next few months. I want to write about the work that I did am doing in the startup on my CV and since we do not have titles, I am looking for a title that best represents my responsibilities (or alternatively, a way to write about it).
I worked for the startup in two phases. First, I worked with them for one month on the user interface, operating system configuration, software set-up of the device and ensuring that everything works correctly. I also did a bit of design in terms of backgrounds, icons, certain logos and symbols for the UI.
Then, I have, and am, currently working with them for about 3-4 months. The work this time is more diverse including making 3-4 hardware components work correctly together (drivers and above only), configuring the niche operating system (Linux distro) to use these devices, find and setup the dependencies for the software, components, and additional libraries, extend the UI to utilise all the components.
In short, I took 4 hardware components, made them work together, and then configured the OS to use them, and finally designed a UI for all of this. I am one of two people working on software (the other individual's work overlaps some of this, and also extends to other responsiblities).
- How/what should I list this role as on my CV? What would be an appropriate title?
- How should I represent this on online professional profiles such as on LinkedIn? What title should I use?
