This paper analyzes the work of software developers and the changes in canonical conceptions of regulated labor. To work is to stay most of the time connected on social networks as a means those workers stay on the market, as well as a condition of constant updating and qualification in the profession. The despacialization of the labor becomes a form of organization of capital and enterprises, with profound implications on the worker’s lives and fragilization in the division between labor and personal life. The research studied these “symbolic analysts" "in companies with different sizes and customers aiming to recover the perception of these workers on" digital work "as “creative work "and your strategies  to stay in career and in the labor market.
