What should a 1C programmer be able to do?

Hello! We publish an author’s article by Dmitry Kotlov, a certified 1C specialist, project manager, and technology expert. Dmitry is also an author and leader new OTUS professional course “Programmer 1C”whose program we invite you to meet.

Hello! In my article I will talk about what kind of specialists are needed to implement 1C, what tasks they perform, what competencies are needed for high-quality project implementation. We’ll talk separately and more about the requirements for programmers.

To begin, we list the positions of specialists:

  • Project Manager
  • Architect
  • Consultant
  • Programmer
  • Quality Specialist (Testing)

What do these specialists do?

Quite often, this functionality intersects in one position. For example, if there is only 1C programmer in the company, it is not customary to attract contractors to carry out projects, then all this functionality will fall on one person or be distributed between him and other departments within which the product is being introduced.

Next, we’ll take a closer look at the “Programmer” position

Let’s start with what levels of programmers are. In each company, the levels of programmers may imply a different level of knowledge and skills, depending on the tasks that the developers will face.

Intern programmer – a vacancy, as a rule, implies zero experience working with 1C, the ability to study intensively. Most often, such vacancies are in 1C partner companies.

  • Participation as an assistant in implementation
  • Programming
  • Passing training
  • Passing tests and certification exams


  • Desire to develop
  • Sociability
  • Initiative
  • Ability to express your thoughts, competent speech
  • Experience with 1C is desirable
  • Preferred accounting knowledge

Programmer 1C – the position implies a certain work experience and the absence of the need to train a specialist in programming, i.e. it searches for people who already know how to program and can independently solve problems.

  • Understanding REST requests and HTTP services.
  • The ability to program in controlled forms
  • Understanding Client-Server Interaction
  • Knowledge of the main business processes of subject areas (depending on what the company is engaged in)
  • Experience with BSP
  • Ability to work with someone else’s code
  • Ability to work with configuration storage
  • Knowledge of development techniques
  • Experience in implementing functionality on the 1C mobile platform
  • Ability to work in a team
  • Code Optimization Skills

Leading programmer 1C – specialists who are able not only to solve problems on their own, but also to lead other programmers, as well as tell them the best ways to solve problems, factoring the code.

Also, if you are interested in developing in this area, do not miss the live broadcast of the master class “Analysis of standards and development methods on the 1C platform”. I will talk about the standards and development methods of 1C and show why they are needed. And also you can independently bring the code in accordance with the standards and methods of 1C!
