Introduction: Senior Developer

Let's explore your journey as a senior developer.

Getting the job as a senior developer

Congrats! You’ve made it as a senior developer!

I’m sure it feels a little different than you imagined, now that you’re in it. Getting a job as a senior developer isn’t the same thing as excelling as a senior developer.

The senior title is case dependent

It turns out that “senior developer” is a very broad title in this industry. Going from “ok, this person is technically not entry-level anymore” to “anywhere else this person would be a staff or Principal, but we believe in a flat hierarchy and call everyone senior. Deal with it.” It’s a little like a “passport” title. It is understood almost everywhere, but exactly how one title translates to another between companies is messy and case dependent.
