How to build an engaging career path

The Ad Tech Blog

The following is my take on seniority levels. Junior engineers are very productive. They are eager to try new technologies, and once they do, they move fast. They are very optimistic, so they don’t test their code thoroughly. They need a clear goal or will procrastinate. Semi-senior engineers are comfortable with specific design patterns/technologies. They know how to set goals and unblock themselves.

Playbooks and Runbooks

The Ad Tech Blog

The most outstanding professionals I’ve met have playbooks and runbooks. It is not so much about their degrees, their experience, their network, or in which projects they’ve been part. It is the fact that they were able to translate all of that into a system that produces results. We developers do this all the time without knowing it: We have a problem We write a solution It provides results every single time a user uses it.

Breaks and Brakes

The Ad Tech Blog

After a few solid sprints, the next logical concern is the team’s velocity. How can I measure speed? Is my team moving fast enough? It is very tempting to default to micromanagement and to measure each engineer’s performance. I’m not against individual performance (it is helpful for compensation adjustment), but it doesn’t tell the whole story about your team’s speed. Another common pitfall is thinking that a slow day/break reduces velocity (crazy, but it happens.)

Have you done this before?

The Ad Tech Blog

Early-stage startups are great early adopters. They don’t have deep pockets, and they desperately need help. It doesn’t mean they are strange to fear. If you are providing a service, the question would be: have you done this before? If you are providing a product, they would ask: how many users do you have? So the chicken and egg problem arises: even if you give your product/service for free, there is always a cost for the customer to try it out.

Sitting idle

Engineers without anything to do is the worst nightmare for founders. I often found myself panicking because I did not know which task to assign to someone.

There is nothing wrong with those tasks, but they are not a good sign if you create them because you don’t want your engineers to be idle. Before you can create tasks, you need goals for the sprint.
