Discussion on: What is your job title?

My title is Director of IT. It's meaningless, as it says very little about what I do specifically. I'm the sole technical person at a non-profit, doing everything from PC deployment to developing apps with React. I got my title when, about one week into the job, my boss came to me and said: "We're printing your business cards. What do you want your title to be?" It was just the first thing that came to mind.

More recently, another person in my org referred to me conversationally as the tech savior. I'm lobbying to make that my new title!

Yeah, I find that titles are meanless especially for jobs where work may not be related to the title you hold.
