Do malware analysts write code ?

I know you need to be a highly skilled programmer to be a malware analyst. I read about reverse engineering and malware analysis.

Now I would like to know if malware analysts WRITE code in their daily life or what they do with code is only trying to UNDERSTAND it in order to know how the malware behave. Thanks !

PS: In fact I would like to be a malware analyst but I like coding too.

You do but it’s minimal. Scripting for supporting tasks and so on.

Of course it really does depend on the scale of your work, you may need to code for automated analysis and stuff like that.
