A look at a software development team structure

When it comes to building custom software, the software development team needs to be top-notch and well-rounded. A well-structured team will ensure high-quality software, meet project deadlines and achieve business goals. 

The structure of a software development team may vary depending on the organisation’s size, the industry the software is for and project requirements. However, there are some common roles and responsibilities that most teams share.

  • Project manager – Responsible for overseeing the software development project from start to finish. They ensure that the project is completed on time, within budget and meets the client’s expectations. The project manager communicates with the team members, stakeholders and clients to ensure that everyone is on the same page.
  • Business analyst – Works with the client to understand their requirements and translate them into technical specifications. They are responsible for analysing business processes, identifying areas for improvement and proposing solutions.
  • Software architect – Designs the overall structure of the software system. They define the system’s components, their relationships, and how they interact with each other. The software architect also ensures that the system is scalable, reliable and meets the non-functional requirements such as performance, security and maintainability.
  • Developers – Responsible for writing code, implementing features, and fixing bugs. Developers work closely with the software architect to ensure that the code is well-designed, follows best practices, and meets the client’s requirements.
  • Quality assurance – Tests the software to ensure that it meets the client’s requirements and is free of defects. The QA team or person designs test plans, executes test cases, and reports any bugs or issues to the development team.
  • User experience designer – Designs the user interface of the software system. The UX designer creates wireframes, mock-ups and prototypes to ensure that the user interface is intuitive, easy to use and aligns with the client’s expectations.
  • DevOps engineer – Responsible for managing the deployment, configuration and monitoring of the software system. They ensure that the system is deployed in a consistent and repeatable way and monitor it to ensure that it’s running smoothly.
