||Computer software engineers held about 909,600 jobs in 2008. Approximately 514,800 were computer applications software engineers, and about 394,800 were computer systems software engineers. Although they are employed in most industries, the largest concentration of computer software engineers—more than 30 percent—is in computer systems design and related services. Many computer software engineers also work for establishments in other industries, such as software publishers, government agencies, manufacturers of computers and related electronic equipment, financial institutions, insurance providers, and management of companies and enterprises.
An increasing number of computer software engineers work as independent consultants on a temporary or contract basis, many of whom are self-employed. About 27,000 computer software engineers were self-employed in 2008.
