What programming languages are you proficient in?

As a software engineer, it is likely you have experience working in multiple programming languages. The specific languages a company is looking for might depend on the systems they design. Before your interview, review the job description and learn more about the company to determine if they prefer experience with a particular language. When answering this question, provide examples of your experience working in different languages.

Example: “I am proficient in Java, JavaScript, C#, Ruby, Python and C++. Out of these, I would say I am most comfortable using Java, C# and C++. In my previous role, I used Java to design applications that are compatible across multiple platforms. I’ve also used C++ to create an operating system that worked with my engineered apps and C# to increase my efficiency when developing web-based software and applications.”
