Abstract: The definition of generic competency levels in a complete career ladder devoted to software profession presents a novel contribution to the literature with added value both for practitioners and industry. The aim of this paper is to identify generic competency levels relevant to software professionals in working environments with respect to a specific professional ladder. The empirical study employed a questionnaire approach. The sample consisted of 50 professionals working in software development within large enterprises for a period of time equal or higher than five years. Results show the importance of competencies like Quality concern and Teamwork and the higher significance that, in average, generic competencies take for the higher positions in the career ladder.
