People who tell computers how to behave, what would you rather be called?

(I can only put 4 choices, write-ins encouraged in replies, "hacker" is another term I would have liked to include.)


@JordiGH when analogizing what I do I tend towards "plumber" and "air traffic controller", both capture the sense of tweaking and coordinating my programming efforts embedded in much larger systems outside my control. Basically I hate the mush or pomposity of all our standard choices - engineer is also close but I have too much respect for real engineers (true of plumbers and atc too, though...)
