A portmanteau of technology and specialist, a technologist is an individual who specializes in applying technology to various fields and industries. They possess a broad understanding of technological concepts, tools, and methodologies, and use this knowledge to solve problems and improve processes. While it's a misnomer (a specialist usually refers to an exceptional person in a limited area), technologists are the proverbial "jack-of-all-trades" with anything technology related.
Technologists combine computer systems, software applications, networking, and electronic devices to meet their needs. In addition to technical skills, these individuals often possess strong analytical abilities and work well in teamwork settings. Technologists often play an essential role in driving technological innovation and organizing teams in a company to help them achieve their goals.
