re: What is your advice for a senior engineer with 10 years of experience? VIEW POST


I see seniors as having three career paths:

1) Continue being a developer. You're a senior, and you can pick up new tech no problem. Depending on your personal life you may want the best culture fit from a job or simply the most money (contracting). The implementation is what matters to you.

2) Architecture. Less time developing, more time researching what solutions are the best fit in what situation. You prefer to work at a higher level of abstraction.

3) Management. No more developing. There's only so much a developer can do, and organizing people and processes is the biggest factor in getting software shipped.
