How the Other Half Works: an Adventure in the Low Status of Software Engineers

Posted on January 27, 2015  •  1 minutes  • 92 words

Bill had been a Wall Street quant and had “Vice President” in his title, noting that VP is a mid-level and often not managerial position in an investment bank. His current title was Staff Software Engineer, which was roughly Director-equivalent. He’d taught a couple of courses and mentored a few interns, but he’d never been an official manager. So he came to me for advice on how to appear more “managerial” for the VP-level application.

A fascinating read by Michael O. Church. Lots of advices on software development careers.
