Nail Your Promotion As A Software Engineer [Part 3] - The Key To Understanding Promotion

We're told our entire lives that the key to success is to work hard. While this is admittedly true for most professions, it's very much not the case when it comes to software where you need to work smart in order to get anything done, especially for promotion. This lesson teaches you:

  • The key insight behind understanding what promotion truly means, especially at top companies
  • Why you can't get promoted by just working longer hours and writing more code, especially at very senior levels
  • A framework to understand what separates incredibly senior (L6+) engineers from the more junior ones
  • What it means to think multiplicatively instead of individually, including an in-depth example
