What's your next career goal?

Do you have a goal?

Usually, we set these with our managers...quarterly or yearly or something.

What's one you're working toward that is really important to you?

I went from being a developer who had a broader skillset and have been able to combine my technical skills with other things I do to be a founder/org leader... This has been fulfilling, but at this point I'm seeking to scope down my career to have a more definable area of expertise for longterm growth.

In doing so, I'm seeking balance, but that's not the kind of thing you can wave a magic wand at.

Mine is to become the point person to help with developer experience.

Whether that be adding observability tools, making builds run faster, or improve collaboration.
