Officially, I am a Ph.D student. However, I identify myself as "Performance Engineer" or "Software Performance Engineer". I have never been able to grow liking to "developer" keyword since I believe the focus is to find solutions through technology stacks via programming and architecting using engineering approach as much as possible. That's why I always like how the big video game companies put ther job title as "X programmer". And personally, I am more interested in non-functional requirements of a program such as latency, thoughput and scaling, etc.... Classic example is to how can we have a faster GEMM implementation on this MPSoC platforms...
