You may have heard that Infosys recently has opened a new position of a system engineer specialist where they recruit engineers who know to code in at least one programming language. If you want to know the package, role, training period of System Engineer Specialist then you are the right place. System engineer specialist is basically an updated version of System engineers where instead of taking the test based on aptitude and verbal.
What is System Engineer Specialist (SES)?
Earlier Infosys only used to recruit engineering students from any specialization such as civil, mechanical, ECE, CSE, etc as system engineer trainee by the test which contains an aptitude test and verbal test without any coding test and then they trained them for approximately 6 months then they deploy them in their preferred location as System engineer under any domain which may or may not based on their training, they can even assign them in the testing or support role. On the other hand, now Infosys came up with a new position where they recruit students through coding, competition is known as HackWithinfy where they allow students to take part in this competition and one who clear two rounds of them out of three will get the golden opportunity to got interview for SES role at Infosys.
What is the Training Period of System Engineer Specialist?
Traditionally, the training period of system engineer was 6 months which is further divided into two areas which are generic training for around 4 months which comprises of python, SQL, etc and stream training which focused more on any specific language such as Java or .Net, etc but in System Engineer Specialist (SES) role the period will be of around 2.5 months where generic training would be around for 5-10 days and stream training would be around
What is the package of System Engineer Specialist (SES) role?
Obviously, if you are landing into Infosys by cracking the coding rounds and clearing interview you will be paid more then the system engineers, currently, System Engineers get around CTC of around 3.6 Lakh but System Engineer Specialist(SES) will get CTC of around 5 lakh.
Under which horizontal does System Engineer Specialist (SES) belong?
System Engineer Specialist (SES) are very different from system engineers hence they are under different vertical from System Engineers. SES people are put under Software Technology Group (STG).
What are the possible streams I can get during training as System Engineer Specialist Trainee?
For general System engineers, there are many but for System Engineer Specialist (SES) there are few such as Java, MERN Stack, MEAN Stack, Big Data. There is an advantage that you’ll never have support or testing based streams.
Advantages of SES
- Shorter Training Duration: Your training will be less than half as compared to System Engineers.
- Always be in Development: You will never be assigned for testing or support job you will always doing programming even after getting the promotion
- Full-Stack developer: You will be trained as a full-Stack developer i.e. you have to work on both front-end and back-end.
Disadvantages of SES
- Training pace will be fast
- They will treat you that you know everything
