I am early in the career and have managed a few events in the company, so some execs Sr. Manager, Director and Sr. Director recognize me. Whenever I am around them, I get blank and they are the first one to say Hi, how are you doing?
Any high-level tips to get over it? I am also not sure what to talk to them about but probably some company highlights, team things or very general fun things.
Hi everyone, I work on Android and currently my team isn't having a lot of OKR work, at least Android-specific. This means I got some time to understand the system better and improve my craftsmanship.
What could I pick up now which will help me in career growth and better understanding of the system? As of now, I am writing a couple of lint rules. I also tried exploring few other repos but there are just too many to explore in-depth.
I'm currently building a side project. I completed my idea of a MVP for the project and I'm looking to market it at some point to get some real users.
I have some ideas on posting on reddit and linkedin, but I'm a little nervous as I've never posted on linkedin before.
My project is a web app.
I see a lot of emphasis on being :linkedin: famous these days. While a lot of it is valuable content, I wonder what's the motivation behind it? What's in it for very senior engineers?
As I read through some of the technical design docs / OKRs on the team, I've noticed some fellow engineers put out some really thoughtful comments (especially the more senior folks), however coming up with such feedback observations is not always super intuitive. As a new-hire junior, I'm looking to build up this skill of conducting an effective design / OKR review.
What do you usually look for / pinpoint when reviewing a design doc or OKR for a new project? How can I still provide good feedback despite not having the same level of exposure / experience?
I post every question anonymously here on Taro so that my company is not revealed.
I fear if any of my posts are viewed by my colleague on LinkedIn they will start looking at me from a different perspective.
I'm an Android Engineer and I recently did a course on AI for Business Leaders from Udacity I feared sharing it on LinkedIn because my team will start judging me.
I don't even know whether sharing a post will make any deep difference, but I want to shape my career around intelligent systems and reach out to a similar audience in the coming years.
I'm currently at a Tier-3 company with 3.5 YOE and get ~5 recruiters reaching out a week. Some of the messages I can automatically ignore, while some are more compelling. I tend to ignore anything consulting-oriented and am more enticed by the recruiters for specific startups who say something like "come join our series A/B/C startup founded by engineers from Uber/Stripe/Meta! We have $X Million Raised!"
I can only imagine that folks working at Tier 1 or 2 companies must be inundated with these emails and messages all the time and from better companies.
What's good practice and etiquette for handling these? I'm aware of the masterclass on and since I'm aiming for Big Tech or Unicorn, it's somewhat helpful in being able to dismiss a lot of postings.
To make this more concrete, I have 2 specific questions:
Is it worth the time responding to recruiters if the answer is no?
If my goal is Tier 1 (MegaCap Companies) and I'm at Tier 3, would it be a lot more helpful to get there via Tier 2 (Unicorns and companies people have heard of)?
Open to any other thoughts!
This isn’t really a career question but does anyone have a good recommendation for resources to learn ios app development for a complete noob? I have a lot of experience building backend distributed systems, but other than building one android app back in college 6-7 years ago as part of the coursework, I haven’t really done any mobile app development ever.
My team will often collaborate with other teams, often times working with them extensively to provide the proper help. However, when those teams achieve their big wins with our support, I sometimes feel like we aren't getting enough credit for our contribution, getting just a sentence or two instead of deeper attribution.
I like these other teams, so I don't think it's bad intent on their part. However, my team goes the extra mile thanking others, and it would be nice to see that same behavior in all our partners. What can we do to better facilitate this?
My goal is to level up to Staff someday, and I feel like I've gotten a lot of very high-level advice and examples that are hard to directly apply. What are some detailed examples of Staff level projects, and what about the execution/behaviors made them Staff?
