Depends on how you define "software." There's a good argument in favor of applying the label to the punch cards of Jacquard looms, or the rolls on player pianos, both originating in the 1800s. They program a machine to perform actions. They're even digital (0/1, off/on). Were there specialists creating them? I don't know.
