The difference between a programmer and a software engineer

Is that the engineer thinks of all code as part of a larger system.

And understands the constraints that a piece of code imposes on that system.

As well as the ways that a piece of code can be mis-used.

At least, that's the way I see the difference.

What I don't understand is why anyone would want to be a programmer.

Or why any development organization would hire one.
