However, during your tenure, you have found interest in serving your fellow software engineers through innovative tools, services, and processes that help engineers be productive.
  • You also have amazing skills that allow you to take requirements to produce scalable, reliable, and easy to understand architecture. Additionally, you are astute in taking an architectural design and performing a work breakdown for your team so that your team can deliver value each sprint. Lastly you are a mentor to your fellow engineers helping each person grow. You do this by being a role model within the team.

You will help drive technical decision-making, particularly about the architectural direction of the platform components for building software. Your team focuses on providing a simple process and set of tools for application teams to leverage so that they can build their application with quality and velocity.
  • You will help set the tone for how your team operates by setting standards engineering and operational excellence. You’ll insist on modern, rigorous software development practices that emphasize testability, repeatability, and self-service automation.

  • You provide guidance on design, coding, and operational best practices, and have a track-record of applying these best practices to software that you have worked on. You can propose and create best practices proactively where none exist.
  • You make high impact decisions driving how and what software gets built. Your decisions are often right, and you are persuasive in delivering your suggestions and ideas to your team. You understand how individual pieces of software fit into a greater ecosystem and can actively communicate and advocate for choices among multiple stakeholders.
  • You are an effective communicator as exemplified by your technical documentation, and your interactions with stakeholders and adjacent teams. Your success is judged as much on your own productivity as on the positive impact you have on engineers around you.
