Indonesia, as a country with great potential, should become an active Global Software Development (GSD) player. This study aims to identify and rank software engineers' competencies when working in a GSD environment. Having gathered competencies with a literature study, we then compiled the hierarchy of competencies, questionnaires and data processing using the Analytic Hierarchy Process. We involved Indonesia's experts in giving a portrait of the potential for global software engineers in Indonesia. From the research results, we obtained 40 competencies along with their ranking and clustering. We conclude that software engineers must master both hard and soft competencies by paying attention to the ranking and clustering generated in this study. This research is useful for practitioners, the Indonesian government and other countries to prioritise software engineer competencies. Further, it is useful for developed countries, as GSD clients, to see a portrait of software engineers' competence in Indonesia.
