No one seems to have mentioned craftsman (or craftswoman?)

Engineer yes, but I also view my career as plying my craft, and what I do as much an artform. Something on the other side of the bell curve of "code monkey".

Well crafted code is clean, tight, follows best practices, isnt more clever than it has to be, but is clever when it needs to be, while never sacrificing maintainability.

All the hallmarks of fine craftsmanship... no different than a fine painting, or a concerto, or even a well executed maneuver on a balance beam... Wink | ;) Smile | :)
