I work for a medium sized company, but I am still the jack of all trades.

Everyday is different. However I work in a very fast and dynamic industry.

You may find that those that come from an enterprise background (potentially overseas) tend to use the formal industry standard titles  such as Solution Architect, Enterprise Architect, Software Engineer/Developer, Business Analyst, Software Project Manager, Systems Engineer etc..  These are professional titles and tend to require a decade or so of related experience to get to.

More generic titles can be used if someone is starting out in a field, or sometimes if performing a specific role within a team. For example, programmer is a job title for a junior software developer.  Network administrator, is the junior form of Systems Administrator, but it can also be a specialised role for someone working in a systems team.

Some of the professional titles require experience doing others for a while, for example, a Solution developer would be capable of doing Project Management, technical and application architecture, business analysis, applications development, software testing and would have a good overlap (but would not really do) solution and enterprise architecture.

Update: Oh, I forgot,  IT Pro is usually a term used by marketing people when talking to non-IT people, personally I tend to use the formal titles.

Software Engineer
