I would say it should be the role of every engineer to know clean code standards, principles of object-oriented design, etc. It should be every dev person responsibility not to merge dead code, dirty hacks, etc.
But it's not... unfortunately.
And that's how this role is born because we can't count that engineers will stop creating more garbage and mess.
That's what I am saying - it us responsibility of a seasoned engineer with very good mature level to enforce best practices.
If we can't count on engineers to control software mess, that would require legislation and regulations on which your agency would run, otherwise software CSI role would be nothing, but a woodoo practice similar to dark agile scrum master.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
