Linux programmers are responsible for developing, debugging and documenting computer programs for the Linux operating system and related software applications. Their responsibilities are similar to those of computer programmers in general and may include using C++, Python or other programming language to write codes or instructions that the device can understand. Computer programmers work in tandem with software developers, and overlapping duties may include creating flowcharts, prototypes and system interfaces for new programs.
