The journey to Staff Engineer is unique for everybody. Letโ€™s talk about all the ways we got there! Senior Engineer is a terminal level at most tech companies.

Staff Engineer is the next level up. This is referred to as Staff at Meta/Google, or Principal Engineer at Amazon/Microsoft. (Rahul's promotion story.)

Partial list of questions discussed:

  • How do you know which problems are worth solving?
  • How do you communicate to your manager that you want Staff promo? And what do you look for in a manager?
  • What type of teams do you think best support growth into the Staff level?
