Default Software Developer for FSW

I am considering applying for a Canadian PR based on my work experience in USA on H1B visa for huge banks. I was not a manager but I was very successful and my area of expertise is in software development for financial services sector. Can someone please let me know if I qualify for a software developer position based on my work experience in USA?

Start learning process here:

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigra.../apply-who.asp

If you don't have documented qualifying work experience in one of occupations on the list below then you are not eligible to apply without arranged employment or without qualifying Canadian experience. How successful you are in what you are doing in US is irrelevant. The current list (subject to change any time now) is here:

BTW - if your user name here indicates that you really are overstaying your visa in US then don't expect any smooth ride with Canadian immigration, even if you qualify.

From what I understand I'm afraid the answer is no.

But do have a good look through the CIC website for more info.
