Obviously Writers, Designers, and Sound Engineers can be the lead in their respective fields, but sometimes I can have a Sound Engineer take the lead on graphics. Sometimes I can have Hacker A perform any job while Hacker B can only perform two. What determines who you assign to each development position?

What their current job is isn't the criteria. It's whether they have any job ranking in writer/designer/sound engineer that matters.

This makes me wish I didn't hire two of my hackers outright. I never should've fire Newb Ownerton! – Fluttershy Feb 14 '13 at 17:19
Train them up, then use the career change manual to turn them into writers. – Shadur Feb 14 '13 at 17:30

Correct, as long as they are at least level 1 in the related job, they will be visible.

And you definitely should not keep Newb Ownerton! He has a terribly small energy bar :)
