How do you describe your work to non-tech person?

Hi everyone! As a freelance back-end developer in Argentina, where tech jobs are non-common yet or all are "build a software" for people, I am often challenged to explain in a simple way what I do.

I usually cite an analogy which is "If web development were the automotive industry, I would be in charge of making or optimizing the engine for different cars of many brands."

I don't think it's totally true, but people tend to understand it much better.

So now I want to know.
What is your job and how do you describe it for a non-tech person?
