Software Developers in Bangladesh: Worth the job?

  • Published at 11:19 am July 2nd, 2016

Kazuki Nakayama, Country Director of Sekai Lab Bangladesh - a Japanese software development start-up, speaks on the Bangladeshi software development sector in comparison to Japan, and how far the former nation still has to go to par with the latter.

What does software development truly mean in Bangladesh? Having a possibility to become an alternative to the garments industry, as the largest domestic industry.

Which does the average graduate need to know? Before they join larger conglomerates, students with an internship experience at any software firm is appreciated better.

Do you think this sector is worth a career in Bangladesh? Very much, yes!

How far can the average graduate reach? As a software engineer with a bargainable salary between BDT 25,000 to BDT 50,000.

How is the previous answer different in Japan? Same designations at less pay. It would range from BDT 15,000 to BDT 20,000 in Japan.

Would Japanese firms hire them as they are? Definitely! It would help if they speak Japanese though.

What do you think holds young software developers back? They lack experience in terms of working in a team. Moreover, the application of business logic is comparatively low in Bangladesh when it comes to software development.

How long does this sector need to challenge the global players? My guess? 2 years.
